How to Bring Learning to Life
Beginning her talk with an engaging personal story, of emergency response training at the Rijksmuseum, Birte makes a case for bringing learning to life by using enriched environments. Making use of elements of theatre, this type of training educated her ‘physically, intellectually and emotionally.’ And the same can happen when enriched environments are used to teach school students. Allowing some chaos, freedom and creativity into the system can help them experience a topic much more deeply, and their minds to flourish.
