Biophilia is headed to classrooms

Vanessa Thorpe, The Guardian:

[Björk’s] initiative, funded by the Nordic Council, is designed to be non-academic and has already been used in an informal way in Iceland. In an interview with the Observer magazine to be published next week , she said the programme had been “really popular with kids who have ADHD [attention deficit hyperactivity disorder] or dyslexia” because it gets away from the classroom-bound, traditional nature of the Icelandic curriculum. “Unfortunately, it means we have to sit down and write a curriculum, and that’s a contradiction.”

Biophilia was such a brave and ambitious project ( I expect nothing less of Björk). Stellar news.
