Slow Education with Mike Grenier FRSA
Wednesday 12th June at 6.30pm
Wotton House, Eton College, Windsor
The Slow School Movement (SSM) looks to build on ideas that have been part of the cultural and educational mainstream for many centuries but seem to have been lost in a modern, outcome-obsessed form of processing that passes for schooling.
Building on the Italian concept of the Slow Food Movement, and taking into account American, British, Asian and European educational practice, as well as recent insights into psychology and well-being, the SSM offers models that are valuable for students and schools of all ages and backgrounds.
About the Ideas in Education Series
In 2013 the South Central Region of the RSA will hold a series of events aimed at sharing ideas about education. These events will be run by and for RSA Fellows with the aims of:
- Sharing knowledge and ideas about education
- Meeting and networking with other Fellows
- Clarifying existing and provoking new ideas for potential project
- Sharing information on Catalyst funding which could potentially support the growth of the ideas
The RSA (Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce) is an enlightenment organisation committed to finding innovative practical solutions to today’s social challenges. With a 27,000-strong Fellowship exhibiting immeasurable amounts of knowledge, talent and skill, the best place to start is to share an idea.
