Our Thoughts on Education

With great experience in international education, we can step away and recognise the contrast the UK education system has to other, more successful systems. In these videos, we aim to reveal a few insights to help you move the needle in the right direction.

Helping Students Understand How To Learn

It might take years to help people understand how to learn, but that doesn’t mean to say that we can’t take time within our already busy school week.

Which learning disabilities respond most noticeably to their environment?

You don’t necessarily need to be on the autistic spectrum to respond to your learning or work environment.  We all have individual differences and individual sensitivities.

The Dangers of Over Reliance on Technology

The first and only place to begin is to educate parents and help them understand the dangers of what it was they were doing with over exposure to mobile phone touch screen technology.

Is Metacognition Understood and Applied?

Metacognition. It’s a phrase widely used amongst teachers and amongst managers and leaders in schools, I’m not so sure that it is widely understood and I’m not so sure that it is widely applied.

Overuse of technology versus digital skills

There’s a clear problem in a number of schools both domestically and globally, with overuse of technology.

Is your learning environment causing you to procrastinate?

Why does our environment matter so much when it comes to learning? Have you ever heard of the phrase I can’t hear myself think? Often our external environment can have a really detrimental effect on our attention, our focus and our output.

10 creative things you can do in your classroom to impact upon standards!

We thought it might be a good idea and quite good fun to make a suggestion of ten creative things you can do in your classroom to impact upon standards. Low-cost and no-cost options! By the time I’d finished thinking about it, actually came up with 20 things you could do with your classrooms, perhaps to improve engagement, literacy, etc.

How we can achieve 50/50 male/female management boards?

How do we get women’s rights in the top table of management? All the world’s best, most highly functional boards have a 50/50 split male and female, and yet there are so few of those boards around, and yet everybody knows that they work best when there’s a rough split between male content, female content. How do we get to that position? We hear from Mrs. Joy Isa, president of Barwaaqo University in Somaliland and Mrs Bex Tear of Badminton School, Bristol. Fingers crossed, we have another go at doing one of these in the none too distant future! #future #school #university #femalemanagement #leadership
