What's stuck in the brain ....
"There is a global creativity crisis, we are teaching uncreativity.....we should be teaching HOW to learn rather than WHAT to learn.." Tony Buzan
"25% of 5 year olds display enterprising behaviours;
Only 3% of 15 year olds display it ....are we just de-enterpising our students?" Paul Kearney
"We rob our students of enterprise by caring too much - we want to do it for them" Paul Kearney
"Real transformation.. must affect people and cultures far beyond those organisations controlled by government" David Hargreaves
"Learning is a mediated process. It's not good enough just to give students a framework, they need competent professionals."
"The craft of the teacher is to mediate to the students."
Pedagogy + Purpose = Relevant Learning Environments
"If you don't know why you're doing it, learning won't happen"
"Why do you want to make the learning different?"
