Brain Waves of Change 2017

Education needs to be RE-IMAGINED.  21st century school leaders must possess four essential skills. They must be able to problem solve and make decisions. The ability to stay cool under pressure will determine their capacity to cope. Collaboration, co-operations and networking is a necessity and they have to be masters of facilitating change.

Neuroscience is changing the way we understand how the brain learns and retains data.  Empathy rich learning environments are creating a space where every student can become a change maker. And change is badly needed in our world.

Cape Town is calling

If any country has experienced change – it is South Africa. Our story, our history is one of struggle, hardship, effort, failure, change and success.  It is a country of inhabitants with GRIT, passion and perseverance for long term goals – this is lived out daily by many in our country. Today we are learning that the brain is malleable. It too can change. Experts continue to teach that the environment of the school building – those non-cognitive factors – contribute to 75% of our success as adults. We have invited world-class speakers to create some winds of change. Together we will explore the latest research regarding how the brain learns using our senses. We will discover that without PLAY we will never develop CREATIVITY AND INNOVATION.  We will explore MINDSETS and what makes people GRITTY.  But most of all, we will put our minds together and share best practice on how to balance, stand up and surf these new waves of change. No matter what your role in education, there’s a wave for you to catch at this conference.

The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.
