This video is an excerpt from a 4 day conference I recently attended in Melbourne. Let me say that I have never experienced a more generous after-conference access to resources and contacts. The other bonus was that both presenters (John Walker & Mary Gladstone) were practitioners themselves.
This video is a part of the conference that really impressed me, as it highlighted the child’s view at the point of learning – one step further than empathy? I don’t really have the words to describe it but I do believe that many highly effective teachers tap in on this deep understanding when introducing new concepts. John Walker is clearly one of them. Thank you John.
Further thanks to Mary who painted the picture of a classroom experience of the Sounds-Write programme.
And to Alison who made this video for us all to watch – as well as orchestrating the conference and ensuring it all ran smoothly.
