Most Likely To Succeed - A Film About Revolutionising Education (Penang Screening - Saturday)
100% Project and Teach For Malaysia, together with our partner in Penang, Kelip-Kelip proudly brings you Most Likely To Succeed, a critically acclaimed film about what schools could be.
Also, a huge shout out to our sponsors APW, Piktochart, ServisHero, Grab and Printcious for making this happen.
The feature-length documentary Most Likely to Succeed examines the history of education in the United States, revealing the growing shortcomings of conventional education methods in today’s innovative world. The film explores compelling new approaches that aim to revolutionize teaching as we know it. After seeing this film, the way you think about “school” will never be the same.
As the world economy shifts and traditional white-collar jobs begin to disappear, that same system remains intact, producing potentially chronic levels of unemployment among graduates in the 21st Century. The film follows students into the classrooms of High Tech High, an innovative new school in San Diego. There, over the course of a school year, two groups of ninth graders take on ambitious, project-based challenges that promote critical skills rather than rote memorisation.
Most Likely to Succeed points to a transformation in learning that may hold the key to success for millions of our youth – and our nation – as we grapple with the ramifications of rapid advances in technology, automation and growing levels of income inequality.

WHY ARE WE SCREENING IT?
Education systems around the world are more or less similar with the use of lectures, memorization and getting good grades being the foundation of a school. We want to be able to inspire and instill a sense of purpose and possibility by bringing school communities together and together re-imagine the endless possibilities of our future education.
It isn't easy revolutionizing an industry that has been developed and used for over centuries, but with a collective effort from individuals, we believe that change is possible.
Come and join us in taking the first step to transform our education system; we look forward to seeing you!
