Mick Waters - Making Learning Irresistible

Description

Former head of curriculum at the QCA, Mick Waters, leads an inspiring conference session giving staff a chance to stand back and think about how they teach and how children learn.

In a session for staff at a Surrey secondary school and its feeder primary schools, Mick takes a look at the future of teaching and learning, and the impact of technology on the classroom.

He then considers what engages children in their learning, and how we label young people according to attainment targets and behaviour.

Mick examines the relationship between knowledge and skills and considers fruitful contexts for learning inside and outside the classroom.

He makes links between the skills children practise in the early years and what they need to be able to do as they get older, and look towards the world of work and higher education.
