Gratnells has appeared on the US exhibition circuit for the first time at EDspaces in Kansas City.
The company demonstrated its continued commitment to improving learning environments, and the learning experience, for children and teachers across the US by sponsoring the show’s keynote speaker, Sir Ken Robinson, the world-renowned author, speaker and adviser on educational matters.
Sir Ken’s appearance drew a packed house of more than 1000 delegates, receiving rapturous applause. He spoke for over an hour on the subject of allowing school children to express their inner creativity and achieve their individual highest potential by releasing them from the constraints of a system designed to force all students along a narrow path of tests and measurement.
In summary, Sir Ken explained the importance the whole learning environment plays in establishing a learning space where all individuals feel engaged and inspired to investigate and discover, embracing a rich learning experience, and becoming life-long learners.
