Seeing the big picture
January 24, 2013 in Uncategorized
Education is never far from the headlines. This week, for example, head teachers have been complaining about the demise of careers services – services which were created to provide expertise for students across schools in local authorities. And added to this are concerns with planned changes to the A-level examination.
And while education hits the headlines, the politicians go round in circles. Political point scoring trumps the fundamentals of education every time.
With this as a backdrop, this week’s podcast looks at the fundamentals of education.
Listen to the podcast:
- The Initiative’s ‘New Synthesis of Effective Learning’
- The Search for Expertise
- To be intelligent (voted one of the four best articles on cognition published in the US in 1997)
We have also added two new audio recordings to our series 99 Theses on shaping a better world.
- Thesis 4 – Ancestral Influences
- Thesis 5 – A Gregarious Species
