I post in order to think and share about learning and education. Ideally, the pieces will inspire thinking and sharing from others. The more discussion the better – I’m hoping for many exchanges about learning. What I really strive for is a learning coffeehouse that can amplify and accelerate educational transformation…
For so long, much of the conversation in education has been primarily about “teaching.” Let’s change the paradigm and make LEARNING the primary focus of our conversations.
Hi nice reading youur blog
My name is Chenee . I am part of a team at Open Colleges and an avid reader of your blog.
I remember reading a post you did and I thought that you might be interested in this infographic that we just developed about parental involvement. I believe it has some interesting points here about the effects on students’ performance when parents are actively participating with their children’s schoolwork.
You can see the post here: http://www.opencolleges.edu.au/informed/features/the-effect-of-parental-involvement-in-academic-achievement/.
Please let me know what you think. And if you can feature it on your blog, I’d be really thrilled! 😀
Looking forward to your reply,

Regards from Beijing where we have a program that takes Chinese students from China’s rapidly developing independent secondary schools, out of China for short term socially- and development-focused focused work projecrs, starting with Cambodia but now quickly expanding beyond. I have signed up on the recommendation of my long term friend Peter Cobb who is a member of our International Advisory Board. Now that I have had a first look, I can understand why he recommended it.
Wonderful ideas…..I am a teacher from Vancouver, Canada, and I love your ideas; I worked with “gifted students” and I have learned a lot from them.
Thanks for the insight!
Steven Johnson’s book is amazing. I blogged about it a little while ago, Possibly the best I’ve read all year. You probably also already saw his RSA animation, which is very good.
His coral reef analogy reminds me very much of what I saw in your synergy classroom.
Love the coffeehouse idea! Bravo.
Let the thinking begin…
