How to foster creativity in 21st century education




Using his professional background in creative consulting and innovation, Leonard Sommer started the research project CLASSROOM THINKTANK to encourage and enable dialogue and resources to be shared between creative industries and education.

​Assuming the whole education system will need to make a radical transition in many countries around the world, he therefore asked more than 100 creatives and education futurists in 35 countries, to inspire parents, teachers, principals, and ministries of education to rethink 21st-century education. The book brings together interesting and relevant thoughts, concepts and inspirations on a new organizational design, learning culture and role of the teacher and parents as well as new teaching methods and an alternative assessment model.
