Creative classrooms in Patagonia

I had the pleasure of visiting with the Ministry of Education in the Province of Chubut, Argentina for Aulas Creativas on February 27-28 this year. The program team recently published this excellent video, which outlines new perspectives for thinking about education.

When I released Manifesto 15 two months earlier, I had no idea that the message and the movement it is inspiring would grow so quickly, and attract so much international attention, especially in Patagonia. I am really touched that this work is helping to change the conversation and form new perspectives for evolving education in the province. For me, that’s the most rewarding part of my work.

In this brief visit, I enjoyed meeting the ministry and area teachers. I am grateful for the hospitality Ileana Farre and her husband, Ian Davie, extended to me during my visit. After hanging out with Ileana, Ian, and Gonzalo Frasca, I must say there is nothing better than good company and great food with dinosaurs, great views of the Southern Sky, and penguins!
