My brain hurt like a warehouse, it had no room to spare (David Bowie)
Week 12 - Book 14: The Future Of Learning (Mark Treadwell)
I don't often get excited about a book that centres on education but Mark Treadwell and John Hattie certainly get my heart racing.
Their crystal clear thinking aligns closely with my own thoughts, hopes and desires for education.
I've had the privilege of hearing them talk about their ideas a few times and they always challenge my thinking.
Marks' six pillars are awesome! Look at number 6 - To implement concept based learning domains and competencies, based on building conceptual understanding, with learners creatively leveraging that understanding to be innovative and ingenious.
How great is that!! I read it and thought - YES! I bet Toni Dunstan's eyes are twinkling as well at Woodford House in Havelock North.
If you haven't grabbed a copy yet (it's only just out, so, like, I forgive you) then go to his website and prepare to be amazed and dazzled!!
