As part of the conference program on 17 September, an exclusive screening of the documentary “Most Likely To Succeed” will be held in Bulgaria.
On 17th of September Education Conference: Child Development in the Social Environment will take part in Most Likely to Succeed’s worldwide campaign to re-imagine education.
The acclaimed film Most Likely to Succeed opens a discussion on how today’s school prepares children for the skills of the future and offers an inspiring look at what students and teachers are capable of—if we have the vision and courage to transform our schools.
Directed by acclaimed documentarian Greg Whiteley, the film has been an official selection of two dozen of the world’s top film festivals, including Sundance, Tribeca, and AFI DOCS. It’s been featured at leading conferences on education, including ASU/GSV, SxSWedu, Harvard/GoldmanSachs, and NewSchools Venture Fund. Audience members call it the most compelling film ever done on the topic of school. In the past year, more than 2,300 communities have booked a screening of Most Likely to Succeed.
The documentary is filmed in well over one hundred classrooms and interviews with teachers, students and parents, education specialists, economists, business leaders like Ted, Tony, Thomas Friedman of the NY Times, Sal Khan of Khan Academy, Lazlo Bock of Google and Sir Ken Robinson, shed light on the urgent need for a new kind of education that develops the uniquely human skills and capacities that cannot be replaced or made obsolete by a machine.
Most Likely to Succeed points to a transformation in learning that may hold the key to success of education as we grapple with the ramifications of rapid advances in technology, automation and growing levels of income inequality.
This film should be watched by every caring parent and educator who wants to improve the learning process.
