Transforming Attitudes to Learning

'Yes' to 'Why'

'Looking' to 'Observing'

'Passiveness' to 'Exploring'

'Textbook-bound' to 'Hands-on'

'Fear' to 'Confidence'

These are the questions that excite and animate us:

How might we create a culture of enquiry?

How might we help to create a world of curious souls?

How might we shift education from learning to answer, to learning to question? 

 How might we find a creative and common humanity?
