"Join us in exploring how the knowledge building approach developed by Marlene Scardamalia and Carl Bereiter can support students to become creative and innovative within a community of learners. In the 21st century we are facing numerous unprecedented social, political, economic, health and environmental challenges. To produce innovative and creative solutions to these so-called “wicked problems” we need to increase and democratise the knowledge creating capacity of our society (Rieckmann, 2012). Instead of focusing on reproducing knowledge, students must be able to “actively interact with [knowledge]: to understand, critique, manipulate, create, and transform it” (Bolstad & Gilbert, 2008, p.39)."
