“I have an interest in education and I think we all do, we have a huge vested interest in it, partly because it’s education that’s meant to take us into this future that we can’t grasp”.
Sir Ken Robinson, from his groundbreaking most watched TED Talk ever.
THE SKOOL PROJECT is a feature length social / cultural documentary film and a variety of associated media initiatives that tell compelling stories about amazing people who are helping to reimagine and reshape education.
SKOOL: The Movie
SKOOL will be a social / cultural documentary film about one of the most compelling social issues of our time: the future of education in a rapidly changing world. It will tell a fascinating story about how education is evolving to fit the needs of a new generation to prepare them for the challenges and opportunities of a new world. Though traditionally education is geared towards letter grades and related certificates, SKOOL explores a system where the singular push for academic achievement is complimented by a more diverse set of considerations, including creativity, innovation, compassion, community engagement, and social / emotional learning. This new system of teaching and learning not only embraces change, it thrives on it.
