On Thursday, September 24 at 3:00 pm US-EDT, we will produce the first LIVE half-hour of Episode 22 of the LearningRevolution.com weekly interview series, REINVENTING SCHOOL. And at 4:00 pm US-EDT, we will record our usual hour. To confuse everyone, we'll call them Episode 22A and Episode 22B. Then, on Thursday, October 1, we'll record a LIVE episode from Australia, which will become Episode 23. (The third episode about Positive Education is coming at the end of October).
If you miss any of the LIVE sessions, you can always find the recordings on this web page several days after the recording session.
You may be familiar with the concept of Positive Psychology--a two-decade-old part of psychology that studies the positive side of the human experience through hope, resilience, mindfulness, relationships, agency and future mindedness. All of this applies to education in very useful ways. Positive Education incorporates aspects of social-emotional learning, but it goes mufh further. This week, we're joined for our first half-hour by Sir Anthony Seldon, Vice-Chancellor of The University of Buckingham since 2015, one of Britain’s leading contemporary historians, educationalists, commentators and political authors; and for the second hour by Laurie Santos, a psychology professor whose big project at Yale University is to positively influence the culture of the institution by teaching happiness and well-being.
