We were treated to a wonderful insight into how to create deep level learning for our children. Ferre inspired us and challenged our thinking with questions such as:
What are the skills and qualities needed for an entrepreneur?
What is linkedness ?
How do we create serendipity ?
Delegates were shown how to reflect on our environments and provoked to think are they challenging enough ? Ferre debated why even though children are being taught knowledge many are not able to retain and use this. It was made clear throughout the morning that unless children are engaged, challenged and motivated; learning will remain superficial and therefore quickly forgotten. At the centre of all this is the importance of the children’s and adults Wellbeing needs to be catered for to enable true excellence.
