With an over-arching theme of Zeroing in on Learning, the Amsterdam conference will consider in which environments learners can thrive; how focusing on thinking can lead to richer learning; and what lessons we can draw from effective collaboration.
A huge thanks to the Flux Foundation for this interactive piece at our Project Zero Perspectives: Making, Thinking, Understanding. Participants were able to interact daily creating a beautiful flowing carousel which remained at Lick-Wilmerding after the conference.
