"Our schools are so stuck in the model of control and compliance that when you actually try to propose something that is innovative and creative, the mentality around it, the structure that controls it is of control and compliance and you are never gonna get there."
Another great talk by Diana Laufenberg, educator. Over the past two years, she has been invited to work with teachers throughout the United States and the world on project based learning, inquiry in the classroom, modern teaching methods, and structuring modern learning ecosystems. Her current endeavors have her serving as Lead Teacher and Managing Director of Inquiry Schools, a non-profit focused on creating schools that are authentic, vigorous and empowering for all members of the community.
