The Blake Community Forum, cohosted by The Blake School and the Walker, is an evening dedicated to learning and education in the 21st century. Featuring a keynote presentation by Dr. Howard Gardner, followed by a panel discussion moderated by Katherine Lanpher of Minnesota Public Radio, this program addresses the challenges of acquiring knowledge in a world of information overload and takes a look at the ways we apply that knowledge in our emerging global society. Panelists include Carol Johnson, PhD (Minneapolis Public Schools), Peter Brosius (Children's Theatre Company), and Andrea Lea, IHM (College of St. Catherine). Gardner is an internationally renowned Harvard educator and psychologist who revolutionized thinking about intelligence, learning, and creativity. He is the author of multiple books on learning and education such as Intelligence Reframed: Multiple Intelligences for the 21st Century; The Disciplined Mind; The Arts and Human Development; and Art, Mind, and Brain: A Cognitive Approach to Creativity.
