Designing for a better world starts at school: Rosan Bosch at TEDxIndianapolis

Rosan Bosch talks about how modern society calls for lifelong learners, problem solvers and creative thinkers! It calls for those who are prepared for a future of ongoing knowledge flow and development. This is why we must change the common perception of education, as a slightly boring or unpleasant duty that you simply must overcome. Motivation, inspiration and challenge are key conditions if we want our children to take reasonability of their own learning. If we want them to get engage, exited, explorative and curious about the world they are living in.

By using design as a tool, it is possible to change the physical environment of our educational institutions and turn the school day into a meaningful and significant experience that will prepare our children for future demands.
