Ideal school

  • New concepts for learning
  • Anne Sliwka
  • Lecture

Studies worldwide show a decline in the motivation to learn in early adolescence. This leads to deteriorated school performance and school fatigue among many young people.
The reason for this “motivational gap” is that schools and teaching have so far reacted too little to the strong cognitive and social-emotional changes in the youth phase – and to the great upheaval in the world of young people, digitalisation.

Anne Sliwka is Professor of School Education at the University of Heidelberg. It presents current research on learning in adolescence in a clear and practice-relevant way. On the basis of international school examples – also from successful countries like Finland, Canada or Singapore – she shows how teacher-centred, instructive teaching and new forms of research and co-constructive learning can go hand in hand – so that school brings joy back to young people and teachers!
