Inspiring a generation of creators, not just consumers!
Society in this day and age is so focused on the end result, not the process. The fruit, not the tree.
According to the Foundation for Young Australians (FYA) ‘The New Work Order’, 60 percent of students are currently being trained in jobs that will be radically changed by automation.
Our education system must give students the opportunity to ‘flearn’ (to fail and learn simultaneously). We must help youth embrace the art of flearning and understand that it is always within their power to be whatever it is they want to be.
We invite you to come and join the Fiftysix Family for an exciting workshop in Brisbane where students will have the opportunity to create and innovate using new technologies. We're not teaching content because we recognise that 'doing', is far more important than 'knowing'. We want to provide inspiration for young people to get started in life now!
Students participating in the workshop will start off by setting goals for their future, followed by rotational activities such as tablet building, virtual reality and entrepreneurship. Students will form 'squad groups' and will have the opportunity to create and present their very own business or social change concept.
Registrations are open to all kids aged seven to seventeen-years-old. Due to the popularity of school holiday workshops, it is anticipated that all places will be taken very soon after registrations open. Parents should be online when registrations open if they wish to secure a place.
There will be a professional photographer capturing moments from the day and all students will need a parent/ guardian to complete a Talent Release Form on the day.
The purchase of one ticket contributes to the education of one child in a disadvantaged community.
Date: Saturday 24 June 2017
Time: 10:00am to 12:30pm
Location: Queensland University of Technology - Gardens Point Campus (J Block)
