Countdown to the National Education Show 2018:
About this Seminar:
‘Guerrilla Teaching’ is what Jonathan calls his award-winning combination of great creativity, a sound grasp of pedagogy and a willingness to take more than a few risks in the classroom. And, having seen it in action, we know how powerful it is to make everything better. Drawing on his experience of working with primary children of all ages, Jonathan will explore how building challenge and creating desirable difficulties can help to develop creative thinking and lead to incredible learning outcomes for young people.
About the Speaker:
Associate of Independent Thinking Ltd
A practising teacher and deputy head at an inner-city primary school, Jonathan doesn’t so much teach as create an atmosphere in his classroom that is magical, engaging and exciting and that makes the children desperate to get on and learn. And, as you would expect from a ‘guerrilla teacher’ he doesn’t let anything the government might say or do get in his way when it comes to doing the right thing for his young learners.
