iGNITE 
 THE
EDUCATIONREVOLUTION

I recently gave a Keynote Presentation at Ingleburn Public School as part of their "Road to Future Learning" Initiative.

 

My Presentation entitled "Ignite the Education Revolution" covered 21st Century Learner Skills, the Learning Process & Astrocytes. (ask me later)

 

The Presentation session and the following dinner were a wonderful success thanks to principal Graeme Green and the support from the Ingleburn School community.

I was so pleased to be a part of this event and to witness a school embracing the learning initiatives.

 

One of the highlights of the evening was the launch of their Video
"The Road to Future Learning"

A splendid collaborative effort from the staff and students.

 

It covered many aspects of the Ingleburn initiative including:

 

The recognition that space can define how we teach, and the fact that student centered learning is seriously constrained by traditional classrooms.

 

So at Ingleburn they are creating new learning environments that meet the needs of students today and into the future. They are also introducing new learning processes including, project based learning, open learning spaces, pilot classrooms and genius hour.

Ingleburn is actually doing and making real changes to invent the future of Education.

 

The journey is simple, explore and invent the future.

 

The Claude Thomas Biddell quote featured in the DVD seems written for Ingleburn

 

“Risk more than others think is safe. Care more than others think is wise. Dream more than others think is practical. Expect more than others think is possible.”

 

Congratulation to a school that is actually not just talking about inventing the future of Education, but is doing it.

 

 

 

 

Why I love writing VT - there is no force or other authority in the world more powerful than a lot of people thinking differently.
