To me my take home learning was the following:
Iain McGilchrist - Chicken Club
We were all captivated by a Ted Talk, from a young lad called Logan LaPlante on 'Hackschooling'. It is well worth taking the 11 minutes to watch. What strikes you about this video?
I won't be asking any student what they want to be in the future! He is quite right, happiness and what we do to be happy.
It was interesting to learn that Paul McCartney failed his audition for the Liverpool Cathedral choir
Iain spent time sharing what he had learned from the professional readings on positive psychology. I really liked the idea of 'nudge' in the positive direction in order to get a desired result.
This is the link to his powerpoint which contains a lot more information than I have written about. It really was a great workshop full of lots of ideas.
