The future of knowledge through the eyes of the future

Parallel Session

This session is an opportunity for the core conference theme to be explored with a group of sixth form students – allowing for the broadest of conversations to take place. Regent High School prides itself on its membership of the Knowledge Quarter (KQ), not only because of the opportunities this affords students and staff but also because of the potential for students to support the broader conversation about what is knowledge, how it is constructed, owned, managed, and what might it look like in the future.

Many students at Regent High School will one day work in KQ organisations, bringing their enthusiasm and unique perspectives to these organisations: this session is envisaged as being an opportunity to channel this enthusiasm for a wide-ranging discussion about knowledge production and dissemination.

Joining the panel will be students from Regent Sixth Form. The students are currently studying a range of A Levels, with the intention of going to university. The students are actively involved in the life of the school as prefects, acting as role models to younger students as well as ambassadors for Regent High School.
