Hi there, this is my very first blog entry and I am feeling very proud of myself for finally getting there. I have been doing so much thinking in recent weeks, most of it probably facilitated by the study I am currently engaged in. Many of my thoughts have been around the future, the amazing changes the world has seen in recent times and the strong need for the education system to transform itself for existing and future times. I attended a session with Australian educator, Tony Ryan last night and listened while he explained that learning is now recognised as a significant contributor to personal and national wealth. Lots of food for thought!
