Citizenship Conference

I spoke at the Citizenship co-ordinators conference in Edinburgh this morning. The session was filmed so I might be able to post my first videocast some time soon. The response from the audience was fairly positive.

I attended a workshop session about philosophy for children. I liked the way the focus was upon teaching children to think – I believe this has potential in our schools and may link with our extreme learning ideas. Apparently Fife Council are also developing materials.

In the evening I attended the Ross High School Celebration of Success evening – a super night with the highlight being Helen Alexander's address.
