It’s sad to hear a passionate educator like Andy Schofield talk about the UK leading the world in under-achievement especially when there are so many resources physical and Web 2.0 to engage students. Andy makes the point that the nature of learning is about understanding students. In fact he says it is all about the learning!
The focus for all good educators is on creating dynamic learning environments and sustaining them well into the future. It’s a conversation we have already begun in our own system of schools.
It doesn’t matter where you go in the world, this is a global challenge, which requires us to work collaboratively by drawing on the widsom and experience of educators like Andy. As he rightly observes this process requires new ways of doing things and especially new ways of leading to deliver this agenda
