EPISODE 8: Innovating Traditional Education
How do we make education relevant for our children today? Is adopting a child-centered holistic system of education the way to go in the 21st century?

Kim is a teacher with a passion for learning and is curious about the possibilities for creating learning environments that engage children and help them to flourish. She’s involved in projects that innovate within traditional systems of education and is a teacher at Manor Gardens Primary School, a government school in Durban.
