With Howard and Andrew Gardner
Wednesday, November 7
The field of education is undergoing a revolution precipitated not only by the rapid growth of new technologies, but by the demands of an evolving global economy. These changes combined require collaboration, creativity and critical thinking.
“What role should a museum play as a place of learning in the 21st century?” and “What unique value will museums add to the field?”, are key questions that Howard Gardner, Hobbs Professor of Cognition and Education at Harvard Graduate School of Education and his son Andrew Gardner, Senior Manager BrainPOP Educators, will consider in a conversation moderated by Edward John Noble Deputy Director for Education, Wendy Woon.
The evening will end with a reception in the interactive space MoMA Studio: Common Senses, featuring installations by artists and educators including J. Morgan Puett, who will provide a brief overview of her installation and be present for conversation during the reception to follow in the MoMA Studio.
