Thinking Forward: A series of webinars for senior leaders to inspire and engage

“You’re Not Thinking. You’re Just Being Logical” led by Ian Gilbert

If the pandemic has taught us anything it is that the teaching of certainty, predictability, answers and facts has not been enough. How can we better prepare children and young people (and ourselves) for a world of complexity, creativity and making it up as we go along?

Ever since Ian first asked his famous question, “why do I need a teacher when I’ve got Google?” over ten years ago (and highlighted the threat of a global pandemic in chapter one), he has been helping schools around the world find the answer to that question. What is your answer?


COST: £55 per webinar OR £200 for 1 place at each of the 5 live events in Thinking Forward series.


DATE: Tuesday 22nd June 2021
