    Professor Stephen Heppell, Expert In Learning Environments

    In this episode, Professor Stephen Heppell will be discussing about his passions in education and his thoughts on political interference on educations.
    “There are 2.2 billion children in the world, and about half have almost no education at all. And the other half of the 1 billion have pretty miserable experiences and bullying. The quarter left, actually in school enjoying it, typically, we fail about half of them, so education isn't doing all that good.”
    “As you know education ain't perfect. And it could be better, but it's still got lovely bits in it. But if I look at Pisa, they're talking about collaborative problem solving, it's coming back, education goes in cycles”
    “But the little things make a big difference. So people talk a lot about what we need to do to make education better? And how do we get today's generation of children to pay more attention and blah, blah, blah, it's never the children.”

    In this second episode we hear from Asha Alexander, principal of The Kindergarten Starters in Dubai.
    “It takes a war, a climate disaster or a pandemic to force educators to actually let go what they are familiar with, and to embark on new journeys.”
    “You might call me stupid or you might call me brave, to get rid of textbooks and learn in a very open way.”
