Product reviews for Big Ideas in Education

John T Morris BA(Hons),MEd,MPhil,CertEd, Director at Ymgynghorwyr Addysg JTM Educational Consultants
Russell Grigg, from his broad experience within education, has written a stimulating and thought-provoking text. The author has successfully promoted the case for extending the boundaries for learning as a lifetime experience and that -˜education goes beyond the school gates'. The focus within the easily read text examines current thinking with regard to the curriculum offered at all levels and strategies to deliver learning, skills, knowledge and effective participation more effectively. As the author emphasises, what really matters is what -˜learners take from school and how we can ensure that the quality of teaching is consistently good'.

Sections within the text focus on key areas impacting upon the quality of the learner's experience, including -˜the variation in the quality of education between schools', -˜promoting personalised learning and the learner voice', -˜developing relevance within the curriculum and equipping learners', and -˜cultivating positive dispositions'.

This is an excellent text which provides the reader with insight into key aspects of educational provision based on informed research, a range of literature and research findings, and reflection by the author on his personal experiences.
