Euroscience Open Forum
Learning In The 21st Century Video
In early spring 2014 the LEGO Foundation was asked by the Danish Ministry of Science, Innovation and Higher Education to participate in a video about Learning in the 21st Century. The video was presented at the Euroscience Open Forum, June 21–26, 2014. ESOF is Europe’s largest interdisciplinary science and science policy event with a focus on science, business, policy, career, media and outreach.
The video raises awareness around the fact that it is not what children learn, but how they learn, especially in the critical years of early childhood, that enables us to continue exploring, participating, inventing, creating and acquiring knowledge throughout the life span: http://vimeo.com/90467085
All videos from the gathering in Copenhagen, each presenting a scientific theme, can be watched here.
