Bereiter, C., Scardamalia, M., Laferrière, T., Massey, L., Shaw, B.,…Istance, D. (2016). Beyond tried and true: The challenge of education for innovation. In C. K. Looi, J. Polman, U. Cress, & P. Reimann (Eds.). Transforming learning, empowering learners: The International Conference of the Learning Sciences (ICLS) 2016, Volume 1 (pp. 9-15). Singapore: International Society of the Learning Sciences.
Singapore and Ontario, Canada, have been rated as among the top education
systems in the world in terms of both student achievement and progressive management. This
symposium brings together leaders and researchers working in these systems to discuss efforts
to go beyond present achievements and to address new imperatives to educate for innovation.
Both systems are experimenting with Knowledge Building as an approach to meet this need.
How they propose to do this while also upholding other educational goals forms one facet of
the symposium. The other facet concerns how this work fits into the larger picture of
education for innovation as seen from the points of view of research in the learning sciences
and OECD’s studies of innovation in education.
