About Research Night:
Your Child’s Contribution to Knowledge Building Research: Becoming Creators, Not Just Users of Knowledge
Knowledge Building engages students directly in the means by which knowledge in the world is advanced. It is akin to knowledge creation as practiced in research laboratories and other frontier-advancing organizations, amplified by a concern with educational benefit to the participants. The Lab School is serving as a Hub of Innovation for an international network of researchers, educational innovators, and scholars of renown working to advance Knowledge Building theory, pedagogy, and technology. Our goal is to engage all students in the kind of creative collaborative work with ideas previously reserved for few but essential for all in dealing with the complexities of our modern world. Members of the Institute for Knowledge Innovation and Technology will provide an overview of new competencies discovered through research in the Lab School. This research shows substantial advances according to traditional standards, global competencies, and students’ advancing knowledge for public good.
