Problem Solvers

"The best schools are dynamic places to learn… At the heart of this is the dynamic teacher, sometimes an instructor, often a designer, guide coach and facilitator but always an activator, devising ways to make learning more engaging, demanding and rewarding. Dynamic learning involves both students and teachers doing great work, together."

The Problem Solvers: The teachers, the students and the radically disruptive nuns who are leading a global learning movement by Charles Leadbeater,

The schools and others profiled in this publication are harbingers, early and sometimes faint signals of what education systems worldwide will need to become. This publication is about why education needs to be a dynamic experience, why education systems need to become dynamic to deliver that experience and what policy-makers, teachers, students and entrepreneurs can do to overcome the obstacles we face.

This paper is published as part of the Open Ideas at Pearson series. The series features some of the best minds in education - from teachers and technologists, to researchers and big thinkers - to bring their ideas and insights to a wider audience.

London launch 1st June 2016

The event featured an introduction by Sir Michael Barber, Pearson's Chief Education Advisor and a world-leading expert on education and a talk from Charlie Leadbeater on the concept of 'Dynamic Learning', which provokes a number of questions for teachers, school leaders, policymakers, parents and learners about how learning happens.

The event also included a panel session that featured Charlie Leadbeater, Lucy Crehan and two year 10 students from School 21 in Newham, one of the schools featured in the publication.
