Find out what one of our forthcoming publications is all about - ‘The Learning Power Approach’

July 04, 2017

"One of the most significant things that children learn in school is to be taught. They learn the skills and attitudes that are required to thrive (or oppose) a teacher-led environment. In traditional schools the attitudes included passivity, dependence, credulity, instrumentality and timidity. These are compatible with getting good grades, but not with becoming a powerful, independent real-life learner. As adults, our lives are diminished if we carry these attitudes forward with us into work, family life and leisure. The Learning Power Approach is uncovering a way to teach which avoids this pitfall."
