The most interesting thing I learnt about yesterday.
yesterday I realised that younger students can be just involved and have just as many ideas as older members of their team. I also realised that self confidence plays a major role in the ability and efficiency to lead a team

The most inspiring thing I learnt yesterday was about 3D printers and how well some scientists have worked and how hard they have tried to create this amazing machine. They kept persevering and they eventually made the 3D printer.

Yesterday was full of exciting ideas buzzing around the room. Students and teachers worked in teams to communicate their different ideas that would change the face of the world in either areas of education or global issues.

The flat conferences were engaging and it was surprising and interesting to find out about different projects that people have initiated to assist the change…Continue

I especially enjoyed the part of the day when we were separated into groups with teachers and students. This was interesting as we got to hear different perspectives of what teachers think that learning should be about and what students think.
At the end of the day, we heard…Continue

The most inspiring thing I learned yesterday was using modern technology to enhance and change our ways of learning. The research of cloud computing and others were interesting and a different approach towards our education.
The pitches by the teachers were also surprisingly (sorry) good. They placed in a lot of effort, thought and creativity to make their presentation engaging with their underlying concepts original and achievable.…Continue
