Latest Activity: Jun 2, 2019

DESCRIPTION

The focus of our session will be a temporary learning space in Gejst Studio. We will create an experience for participants to explore work, play, and intergenerational learning. The participants, who will be a group from multiple generations, will define and co-create a challenge to learn a new skill together.

We want to explore these ideas in the context of libraries because traditional learnings spaces represent a massive disconnect from the real world and workforce. They don’t foster 21st-century skills required or experiences to nurture whole, creative, innovative thinkers. Workplaces, likewise, don’t nurture the kind of humanness, individuality, innate creativity of people the way early childhood learning spaces do. We want to explore new ideas for bridging the chasm between learning and work for young individuals versus adults and how libraries can play a role.

During the session participants will visit Gejst studio for the learning experience, and everyone who joins can choose a role in order to learn together. In the end, we will have a discussion of, their experience, what they learned, and the possibilities for learning in libraries.

Participants will engage in a hands-on interactive learning session with children where they collaborate to learn together.  

Facilitators: 

Jesper Boberg Bang, Gejst
