In this education innovation keynote Charles Leadbeater talks about the need to radically change school systems worldwide.
The innovation consultant begins his speech by discussing vantage points. A vantage point determines everything a person sees. It is the position from which a person asks a question and therefore has an immediate impact on the answer they receive.
Throughout the world in developing nations, slums are the areas with the fastest growing population. These are the areas where questions regarding solutions towards education, government, community, society will be found. Schools in these areas are currently struggling to keep children interested and engaged; however, it is these areas where technology has the biggest influence in regards to encouraging attendance. In order to effectively impact change radical thinking needs to be applied towards areas where solutions are needed the most.
