Alex Beard, a Master’s graduate in Education from London’s Institute of Education, is part of the Teach For All network of independent organizations dedicated to children’s education. He has visited 46 countries, observing and learning different educational systems and practices with teachers and education managers. In his most recent book, Natural Born Learners (2019), Beard transmits some of what he has learned, analysing the current state of education; how the new generations interact with information; how we continue to use schooling models set up at the time of the Industrial Revolution; educational systems in contexts as varied as South Korea, Silicon Valley and Finland; and what we can do to implement better forms of teaching and learning in the future. Beard will talk to Alejandro Millán.
