Pushing The Edge with Innovative Educator Greg Curran

They’re moments that catch you unaware, moments that surprise and delight you.  

Join us as we celebrate teachers and innovative ways to be all you can be.  I was honored several months ago when Greg Curran asked me for an interview explaining my position on children, their abilities and the many ways they learn. As he peppered me with questions about how my children best me time and again with ideas for our book series, the creation of #whatisschool, one of the top Twitter education chats of 2014, and my views on learning I realized how much I could offer, and how much I've been given by my amazing PLN.   The interview is posted below I hope you enjoy it!

When students stretch themselves in ways that you’d never have imagined, going far beyond what you thought possible.  In this episode: Challenging our views about young people. We’re letting go of the reins and pushing beyond the ‘we know best’, ‘we’ll show you’ approaches with author, broadcaster and speaker Laura Hill. 

Laura has two children, Ava and Kayla, who managed to confound her time and time again. So much so that they’re partners with Laura in the Family Business, and have contributed to a significant shift in how she works with young people.That’s not all though, we’re also talking #WhatisSchool, a Twitter Chat that Laura co-founded with Craig Kemp. Plus we have the Lightning Round – where we’re talking Risk, Courage and Edge.  And to bring us home, a young John Lennon goes one up on his teachers in a Not to Be Missed Quote about Life, School and Happiness.
