Ulearn 11

Ulearn 11 is a truly amazing experience. It is impossible to not come away from it without your heading swimming with ideas.

I made the most the opportunity to hear what he had to say. He is someone who truely has a vision and puts it into action. I want my children to attend the schools he talks about. I want to teach in one of those school! Where learning really does start with the student and student voice is paramount.

Learning should be about creating change in the world and teaching real-life practical skills. I am already jotting down notes for how I can change my English course to have my students creating, changing and doing something really worthwhile

  1. Great links to websites thank you. Ulearn was fantastic and have enjoyed people's reflections. For me it was a 3 day conversation around learning technology collaboration and innovation.
