LEXM: Paul David Reynolds

We are at the frontline of the fourth industrial revolution. Is our education system ready? Why is STEAM so important?

Join us at League of Extraordinary Makers as we explore a STEAM powered pathway to enterprise and employment for the next generation of inventors, creatives, entrepreneurs and innovators.

Paul David Reynolds, Head of Visual Arts at Bunbury Senior High School, likes to change things. He thrives on challenge. He believes, in a school, that student learning is not formed by materials and tools but by a mindset of community, creativity and collaboration. The workforce of the future will no longer be (purely) skill based or focused, but one which requires employees to exhibit a capacity for creative thinking and problem solving. Having taught and practiced visual arts for many years, Paul has observed that a creative approach to problem solving is the most important skill in driving innovation. It nurtures adaptability and an ability to take risks. Meaningful learning takes place when the student or participant is an active participant in their education, when a personal connection is made in the construct and delivery of a course of study by teachers, parents and mentors and when school-based learning is blended with ‘real world’ experiences that heighten and focus the student's interest.

Paul will be introduced by Maker + Co's Creative Director, Colette McEntee who will also facilitate an audience Q & A.
