“Mind Expanding Teaching for Exponential Learning”
A practical perspective on how to teach the skills of originality,
imagination,and problem solving in class in order to fuel the ability
of kids to learn through curiosity and joy rather than through pressure and obligation.
In addition, teaching the skills of self reflection and internal dialogue
will help them to apply themselves and to keep going through
the tough stages of learning mastery.

"Use your Imagination"
Imagination goes much further than believing in elves and dragons.
Being able to visualize ourselves positively helps us to become better teachers and more
successful learners. It enables us to cope with anything which life
throws at us and to empathize with others. Creativity isn’t confined to
‘The Arts’ and developing our imagination can enhance everything we do
from loading up a supermarket trolley to marking piles of homework!
