A must read!
I haven't time to write a blog about this book written bu Guy Claxton - one of my favourite writers.
Suggest you check it out using google at Amazon.
'A powerful and timely examination of why our schools are built to fail, and how to redesign them to meet the needs of the modern world.'
Written with passion blending latest advances in brain science and practical down to earth examples. Outlines the need to develop in all students learning capacities ( the NZC Key Competencies) and how to achieve them.
A powerful voice that has contributing to the thinking of the Ministry and which builds on the ideas of creative teachers who have always being in developing students ability to 'learn how to learn' in tandem with students passion to learn what engages them.
