    Xammie Likoko on Igniting the Fires of Learning

    Xammie Likoko on Igniting the Fires of Learning

    Starting series two off with a bang, I talk to Xammie Likoko about why science lessons should be more dangerous, how hands-on and project-based learning can be naturally more inclusive (and more fun), and the value of teamwork in the classroom. Xammie and I taught together at a school in Kenya which, despite our best efforts in the science lab, is still there.
