In this episode, host Klaudjo Kavaja talks with Rob Houben of Agora School (Roermond, the Netherlands) about their approach to education. Agora is an innovative secondary education school with no traditional classrooms, no classes and no curriculum. They touch upon the vision of the school which for them “it should be a mix of a place where you can access all the knowledge in the world, where kids can feel at ease, which can work as a creative laboratory, and be like the ancient Greek Agora where you can debate, interact, inspire others and get inspired by others”. They also discuss the role of teachers which they call coaches, the importance of technology, and the future of education.
