Organisers: Education Experiment NGO
During the panel discussion, we will discuss children’s needs. Are parents and teachers today prepared to give children the right to choose their own format and pace of learning? What do we actually mean by these concepts? We will also consider the question of partnership in the ‘teacher – student – parents’ format.
The first part will be moderated by teenagers who will help to establish a dialogue between education experts, teachers, parents and the audience. During the second part of the discussion, adults and children will switch places.
