  • There is 1 learning process!
  • It is the same for everyone.
  • You don’t differentiate so students learn differently, you differentiate so students engage differently.
  • If you want to learn something you have to engage in it, but not too much!
  • Attenborough effect.
  • Science of learning and craft of teaching.
  • Thinking principle
  • Learning principle - all learning has to begin with facts.
  • Semantic memories for the key 10 or 15 facts. Three episodic memories for a fact.
  • Episodic memories vs. semantic memories.
  • All starting of learning builds episodic memories.
  • How we use inquiry wrong in education.
  • Surface learning is semantic facts. Binary.
  • Conceptualization - how are you going to organize your facts. Forming a concept. Can’t be binary.
  • Contextually emergent skills.
  • Fear of failure
  • Learning resilience
  • Education gives you experience in learning.
  • How to be a transformative principal? People who you don’t really know what they think at the end, because they are trying to get you to question your own assumptions.
