"You're right, an interesting read Sarah, I tried to ignore the section of body parts self review haha! Instead I migrated to idea of self review and asking valuable questions after things go wrong.  How could I have detected this…"

Applying 'The Chaos Monkey' to your life

I am currently completing the whole life challenge and every few days, I get sent emails around practices that support improving my life from the inside out. Most of the time, I just flick the message straight into the bin but the title of this Article really grabbed my attention. It left me thinking- what is my chaos monkey? How can I better deal with 'failure'? and How…See More

"Great question Hazel. For me the biggest take away came from the combination of my experience and the co-authoring. It is around the digging deeper into my practice and the pivotal role that the co-authors had in helping me to effectively reflection…"

The F bomb of education!

Bringing positive disruption to education is my passion and inspired by Jane Gilbert,  this post is all about exposing the use of those seemingly harmless words in education that we seem to throw around willy nilly without a true understanding for what they mean and how to achieve them effectively. And guess what just by saying these words doesn’t bring about the disruption we need in education. All it does is put a label on a process that we are already doing or adding something else to the…See More

Tackling the Four Horsemen of Fixed Mindset

I am an interesting character when it comes to CHANGE. In my personal life I am the type of person who you are likely to be found cowering under the table (with my head firmly buried in the sand) hoping that the Chhhhhhange will just disappear if I avoid it. However, in my professional life, I am riding the 20ft wave of change and transformation. Now this is something that has puzzled me for many years and I think that I may have finally stumbled across the reason why- it all comes down to…See More

The Concept of Purposeful Learning

Purposeful Learning Spaces in a Nutshell We talk about MLE and ILEs but, time and time again the first things people jump to usually include (and in no particular order) ‘Massive space’, “Noise’, ‘Lots of people’, ‘Busy’, ‘Free-range Learning’ and the reality is that you can spout off research and examples etc until you are blue in the face but the end result is usually the same: the eyes of our audience would rapidly glaze over and the brain would follow a train of thoughts that is more inline…See More
