What skills do students need to learn for their future and how do schools go about teaching them? Our guest, Dr. Alan Knobloch, the Head of the International School of Hamburg will argue that to best prepare citizens of the future who can thrive in an ever-changing global environment, schools should aim to serve the needs of the child as a whole, develop students’ knowledge, their talents but also and increasingly their socio-emotional wellbeing and resilience. How do they go about this? Tune into this podcast to learn more.
