Suggestibility in Art and Design lecture

suggestibility Richard Allport

For those of you who have enquired, the lecture on Art and Design and the influence of suggestibility is in its finishing stages and nearly ready to go. It should be an interesting and slightly unusual lecture, full of odd moments and double takes.

More posts to come with the relevant dates.

A quick thankyou…

Tim Harris      Mark Roberts

I wanted to extend my gratitude to Tim Harris (Strategic director – Discovery) and Mark Roberts (Personalised Learning Director for Design and Technology) for all their help and support during the Searching for Creativity project at Q3 Academy, who along with Steve Arrandale (Head of Art) have been brilliant in introducing the students to some new ways of creatively thinking.

I’d also like to thank the students for being inspired, taking part and especially being quiet when I told them to!

I’m sure “Searching for Creativity” will move into its next phase “Producing Creativity” quite soon.

School trials 10am starts ‘to give tired pupils a lie-in’

kid asleep

An interesting article in the Daily Mail about student’s stamina. The 3pm lull is common in the workplace and schools. Maybe if this article works we could all adopt a new working week…..?
