A curriculum for Wales - a curriculum for life
We spent today listening to the live-streaming of the conference via the webinar.
We are more than happy to share our notes with those who were unable to attend/access the webinar - but they are ‘notes’ taken as quickly as possible during the webinar! There may be mistakes. We do not include any of our own reflections/responses - these notes are purely for capturing the information shared by the speakers.
The PDF 'Notes from National Education Conference Wales 22.10.15' are our notes.
The additional documents were made available to us for the webinar - including the 'implementation plan'.
Really pleased (and relieved) to read this recent article by Carol Dweck - thank you to two of our Scottish colleagues for bringing our attention to it. We had a growing concern about 'growth mindset' becoming 'a gimmick' and being 'done' to both learner and educator as awareness and popularity grew. The honesty of Carol Dweck's response in this article is refreshing and thought-provoking. We urge you to read and explore/reflect upon your own thinking and that of your setting/workplace.
