ULearn2016 - Keynote Speaker - John Couch

"New dimensions in learning."
  • Rewiring Education: Every student can succeed.
  • Often school requires children to memorise everything.
  • Have a vision - can you articulate the WHY? Why does your school exist?
  • Leadership - Vision (inspirational), Mission (measurable), Directions, Steps (creativity), People (companions rather than competitors). This is based on RELATIONSHIPS not products.
  • Students Engagement = Learning
    • Engagement could be:
      • Teacher
      • Technology
  • "Education is what people do to you. :earning is what you do for yourself." Joi Ho
  • Education is a process of learning - delivery,  VS Learning - community, discovery
  • Technology is only technology to those born BEFORE the technology.
  • "...all books, learning materials, and assessments should be digital and interactive, tailored to each students and providing feedback in real time." - Steve Jobs
  • Education - help each student find that uniqueness, that gift they have...
