Tony Wagner: Creating the next generation of Innovators
   
Innovation Education Fellow at the Technology and Entrepreneurship Center at Harvard

Date: Wednesday, June 20, 2012
Time: 6:00 - 8:30 p.m.
Place: Aldrich 112, HBS

We are delighted to present an evening with Tony Wagner, Innovation Education Fellow at the Technology and Entrepreneurship Center at Harvard and the founder and co-director of the Change Leadership Group at the Harvard Graduate School of Education.  

Tony consults widely to schools, districts, and foundations around the country and internationally. Tony is also a frequent speaker at national and international conferences and a widely published author.

His work includes numerous articles and five books. Tony’s latest, Creating Innovators: The Making of Young People Who Will Change The World, has just been published by Simon & Schuster. Click on the book image for a video description of the book.

Tony’s recent book, "The Global Achievement Gap: Why Even Our Best Schools Don’t Teach the New Survival Skills Our Children Need—and What We Can do About It", has been a best seller and is being translated into Chinese.

Tom Friedman writes:  “Tony Wagner, the Harvard-based education expert and author of “The Global Achievement Gap,” explains it this way: There are three basic skills that students need if they want to thrive in a knowledge economy: the ability to do critical thinking and problem-solving; the ability to communicate effectively; and the ability to collaborate." 

If you are interested in education and / or innovation, you will find this program to be of interest!  All are invited.
