Understanding Learning

IF YOU CAN’T REACH THEM YOU CAN’T TEACH THEM: Building effective learning relationships

I wanted the book to support teachers with the challenges they face throughout their career. The focus is on building effective learning relationships with their students, managing their time and remaining a learner throughout. Whilst teachers, schools, students and communities all differ I have found that there remains a core set of needs we all possess in order to engage in any learning activity (I include teaching as a learning activity). When these needs are not being met teachers face many challenges, not least of which is learner engagement, something that makes teaching ‘difficult’ and ‘demanding’. The book identifies and describe the core needs (PBCF) and shows how we can plan to meet them (in both our students and ourselves) in an effective and manageable way helping to improve teaching and learning and minimise challenge and stress. The book is a learning journal where teachers can reflect on their own practice as well as plan for interventions/changes that will improve their teaching and through PBCF build a dialogue with their colleagues to further their career as a successful teacher.

"4c3d" (AcEd) is the abbreviation for Advocating Creativity in education, a company I set up to challenge how we think about and deliver education. The blog champions my concept of Learning intelligence, how we manage our learning environment to meet our learning needs as well as detailing those needs: Power Belonging, Choice and Fun - PBCF.
