Thinking Moves - Metacognition Made Simple
I've been working so much, along with my DialogueWorks colleagues Bob House & Roger Sutcliffe, on Thinking Moves over the past couple of years and it's wonderful to see so many people and schools adopting this apporoach. More training courses are being announced on the DialogueWorks website, along with P4C Plus and Whole School Values - Whole Person Virtues courses. Contact me here or there for details!

A very different start to the new year
My best wishes go out to everyone who has started, or is about to start, their new school year. I'm fortunate to have worked in schools around the world and all are concerned with getting students back to school but I know the reservations that come with that.
I've spent the majority of the school closure time running courses online and developing materials but I'm very happily having a return to training in front of teachers rather than in front of a screen, starting at the beginning of September. That said, the new normal has highlighted the various benefits of online training so I'm continuing with that too (see the DialogueWorks website for details).
I'm very much looking forward to continuing my work with all the schools I've been fortunate to be involved with over the years. Needless to say, don't hesitate to be in touch if you need any advice.
In the meantime, have a happy, safe and enjoyable reunion!

By all means marry; if you get a good wife, you'll be happy. If you get a bad one, you'll become a philosopher.
Do not train a child to learn by force or harshness; but direct them to it by what amuses their minds, so that you may be better able to discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius of each.
It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.
Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.
(John Dewey, 1859-1952)
