The Neckerchief Revolution

Education innovator and international expert Maya Wizel showcase the dramatic “full-scale change” required for designing better, more relevant education systems for all.

The so called “formal” and “nonformal” education systems are seemingly polar opposites. Where one system is didactic and academically oriented, the other is more flexible, and oriented towards problem-solving and social skills. Both systems can undoubtedly work simultaneously toward the same goal – but can they coexist together under one roof? What can formal educators in schools and in higher education adopt and learn from the experience of non-formal educators?

Through her methodical yet poignant research, lifelong education innovator Dr. Maya Wizel demonstrates how the values of youth movements, summer camps, and other non-formal educational settings can help guide the new generation of educators and policy makers. She brings the voices of educators who “crossed over” from the non-formal to the formal system, carrying with them values and practices that help fulfill and advance the current goals of formal education systems.

In her groundbreaking book, Dr. Wizel draws upon her extensive 25+ years of experience in various global education systems to demonstrate how the practical tools of non-formal education can have a profound impact by:

  • Increasing learner engagement and motivation through providing more choice.
  • Developing competencies, including creativity and teamwork, that are essential for the 21st century.
  • Empowering students to become self-directed learners.
  • Expanding the range of teaching methods through promoting active learning.
  • Improving communication skills and fostering positive relationships through enhanced dialogue.

Appealing and engaging for any educationally inclined reader, The Neckerchief Revolution is a concise, comprehensive look on the cutting-edge practices at the foreground of independent learning and futureproof education.
