Innovative Schools Summit Plenary Speaker Dr. Yong Zhao believes that students are born with innate emotional and creative differences and strengths. He emphasizes this human need for fulfillment and says:
“If you consider positive psychology, you see that everyone wants to pursue self-actualization, self-transcendence – they want to be valuable to others.”
Watch Dr. Yong Zhao illustrate how multiple intelligences accentuate student diversity – a vital element of positive school culture.
Dr. Zhao is an expert on globalization and education. He has published over 100 articles and 20 books including Catching Up or Leading the Way: American Education in the Age of Globalization. Dr. Zhao will deliver a plenary presentation at the Innovative Schools Summit Atlanta.
