“We risk turning off students who used to be eager.”

With new technology, rapid changes in the global economy, and an evolving workforce, the need to improve the way we teach is becoming more and more urgent, says David Garner. In this talk at TEDxIndianapolis. Garner explains why going from outdated models like specialization and standardization to a more multidisciplinary approach is necessary to equip students for tomorrow’s challenges.

David Garner arrived in the US five years ago from his previous post in the Netherlands to become Head of School at the International School of Indiana (ISI), an independent school that serves 600 students from pre-school through Grade 12 and is part of a worldwide network of schools sharing a similar mission.
