About The Event
What do stories have to do with learning? What is the role of the imagination in an age of information? The "disenchanted age" we now live in often privileges facts and information over less measurable learning. But what if something profoundly necessary is lost along the way? What would it mean for wisdom and wonder to play a real role in education?
Join us for a conversation with Dr. Bethany Hebbard exploring the promise of "fairy tales," for the young and old alike, to better know reality. Co-sponsored and hosted by Founders Classical Academy in Leander, this discussion will help us rethink the role of imagination in learning.
