One of my favourite speakers is Dr Dan Siegel whom I had the pleasure of witnessing present at the Mind and Its Potential Conference in Sydney, December 2009.
His Three R’s: Reflection, Relationships and Resilience are the cornerstone of contemporary education. My PDHPE pre-service teachers at the University of Wollongong are being exposed to his new wave of thinking. Hopefully the ripple effect will be felt within the schools they teach in the future. Let’s humanise and personalise Education in the 21st Century, rather than standardise with NAPLAN tests and ATAR scores.
