Event description

Description

The Mitchell Institute is presenting a free screening of the new award-winning documentary Most Likely to Succeed on Wednesday 12 October.

This acclaimed film explores compelling new approaches to education that aim to provide opportunities for students to have strong agency in their learning.

The film follows students into the classrooms of High Tech High, an innovative new school in San Diego. There, over the course of a school year, two groups of ninth graders take on ambitious, project-based challenges that promote critical skills rather than rote memorization. Most Likely to Succeed points to a transformation in learning that may hold the key to success for youth in the face of rapid globalisation and advances in technology and innovation.

Following the film there will be a panel discussion facilitated by Dr Michelle Anderson (Director, Interface2Consulting) that features Professor Bill Lucas (Director of the Centre for Real-World Learning at the University of Winchester), Fernando Ianni (Principal of Roxburgh College) and Spencer Davis (student at Footscray City College).

The event will provide an opportunity to network with teachers, principals, students and other education professionals.
