Sugata Mitra


Self-directed, self-organising learning with Sugata Mitra

The school of the future is a self-organised learning environment where students learn collaboratively using technology and the internet. Their natural curiosity can determine the questions, and they can find their own truth. The role of the teacher is simply to help them bring out the learning – “out-doctrination” rather than indoctrination. Sugata Mitra calls it “minimally invasive education”. It’s not so much an experiment as a revolution, in which children will become navigators of their own learning journey.

Learning outcomes

• What happens in a self-organised learning environment (SOLE)
• How to release schools in the cloud within existing schools



Sir John Jones


Magic weaving with Sir John Jones

The future of learning is cast and we know it as well as we can, given that it is ever-changing, uncertain, immeasurable and an adventure. Drawing on neuro-linguistic science and a supreme art in storytelling, Sir John Jones inspires us to become emotionally brilliant in our response to this new world. As we strive to adapt, Sir John will offer ways to develop as leaders and rediscover our calling as teachers.

Learning outcomes

• Create a safe place for transformational feedback.
• Reprogramme the voice in your head and breathe life into the learning environment.
• Engage students through the quality of your words.
• Be the magic weaver who has positive impact far into the future – for yourself and for your students.
• Lead from the heart and be courageous.

Be prepared for unconscious bias and behaviours to be exposed, for laughter and tears, and yes – for a magical experience.



Mark Osborne


Innovative Learning Environment

There is a growing awareness that the physical learning environment is an important element in the teaching and learning ecosystem. Innovative Learning Environments (ILEs) are designed to ensure a good fit between the environment and the teaching and learning taking inside them. This masterclass will explore the latest research into implementing innovative learning environments, including:

Learning outcomes

• Designing effective, inclusive learning environments,
• Supporting communities through changes associated with ILEs, and
• Evaluating, reviewing and sustaining innovative practice over the medium to long term.
