School’s out Friday

Last night, I presented my talk at TEDxMelbourne Education Leadership. I’m not going into detail about that here, other than to say that it was very well received and I’m very humbled by the kind words that have come my way over the last 24 hours.  A post over the weekend will be coming. Right now, I’m totally exhausted and will be heading to bed as soon as I press publish here.

In the meantime, you can utilise 19 minutes or so watching the incredibly gifted Neil Gaiman deliver a speech that will stay with you long after you’ve watched it. I used this in my Yr 10 English class earlier this year and my students took so much away from it that they can apply to their own learning. They thought it was well worth the time invested watching it. Lucky Neil, he had a lecturn and notes to refer to!

Enjoy your weekend. I hope the sun will be shining where you are. Sleep beckons!
