Building High Performance Learners - with David Anderson and Liz Stevenson

How can we make sure that our students and teachers are getting what they need in order to be high achievers? How can we do this with what we've got and still dream?

At the ULearn 2010 Conference, Christchurch, 100 educators from New Zealand, Australia, US and the UK took part in a one hour high energy think tank, building a collective knowledge base around achieving potential for all learners in schools. Using an expert jigsaw process meshed with powerful questions, this group of creative thinkers developed shared action processes for leading learning in schools.
