Learning from Leonardo – Unfinished Perfection


This session will focus on key learning principles for use in the classroom based on some of Leonardo Da Vinci’s own approaches to his work, exactly 500 years after his death. It will explore learning concepts such as ways to develop a beginner’s mindset, productive frustration, conscious ignorance, adjacent possibilities, perfecting attention, metaphoric thinking and negative capability. It will also examine how implementing these ideas helps to develop more creative independent and thoughtful students and a more interesting learning culture across a school.

Across two days, over 250 sessions will take place at the Festival. A full timetable of sessions will be available from late May 2019. Until this point we will only be announcing the day(s) sessions will be taking place.
