    Edufuturists #244 We Are All Codebreakers with Brian Aspinall & Daphne McMenemy

    In this episode, we are joined by Brian Aspinall & Daphne McMenemy from CodebreakerEDU, who have recently agreed to publish Ben's book!

Offering professional development from an array of backgrounds, experiences, cultures and climates, and providing quality leadership, consulting, keynotes, and workshops, the company embodies its mission statement in every way.

    Breaking code isn’t just about programming, it is about disrupting the status quo. It is about challenging social norms. It is about having critical conversations. It is about challenging systematic beliefs. It is about educating the whole child – mind, body, and soul. Code Breaker is a beautifully dangerous invitation to reflect on education.

    Edufuturists #243 The Game of Collaboration with Alan Tang

    In this episode, we are joined by Alan Tang who talks about his journey from an Economics degree to a city chef, through venture capitalist into founding Collaboration Laboratory.

    Collaboration Laboratory was founded by a team of parents, educators and engineers who wanted more from the modern education system. Their mission is to teach skills that aren't taught in schools: they nurture children's curiosity, foster collaboration, and cultivate their problem-solving abilities. They're creating a community where kids can develop into compassionate and productive global citizens.

    Ben has recently joined their Advisory Board as he was so impressed with their setup!
