#EosEdSouthWest2017 is the first EOS Education ‘Conference’ to be run out of Lincolnshire and 2017 is the inaugural #EosEdSouthWest Event, with 2018 already being planned! On 8 February 2017 we welcome Jonathan Lear, Prof. Sugata Mitra and Stephen Tierney to Cornwall, all of whom lit up #EosEd2015 with panache, provocation and plenty of humour! Two years on, #EosEdSouthWest2017 will explore three key themes or rather questions:
- How can we build challenge and desirable difficulties to inspire and develop creative thinking?
- How can teachers and leaders deflect ‘the nonsense’ in order remain focused on that which matters?
- What is the future of ‘the school’ (and therefore ‘the teacher’)?
Our author Jonathan Lear will be a keynote speaker at the event alongside Sugata Mitra and Stephen Tierney.
