John is the creator at The Living School.
John believes that schools must nurture a sense of wonder. Schools need to engage. It is about offering opportunities based on personal goals – diversity. Teachers are not coaches but they must relate. Teachers go beyond correction. The effective teacher is an affective teacher. Quality teachers allow learners to explore passion, fail forward, connect with confidence and foster a deep sense of belonging. It is not about motivating – as if an adult has to command content. It is all about developing life-long learners. John believes learning must have an authentic focus on engagement, mastery, grit and practical experience. Wisdom is experience.
