Sir Ken Robinson has just opened the conference with his usual inspiring clarity. His anecdote relating Peter Brook‘s beliefs regarding theatre, that you can strip almost everything away, except that relationship between ‘the actor’ and the ‘audience’ resounds with me. I know you know this and I do too. It sounds simple and I have heard many speakers talk about relationships as the key. Ken, as always, just manages to illustrate the point powerfully.
Sir Ken’s #PeterBrook #theatre anecdote about the importance of relationships in education is THE theme IMHO #educationrevolution

Regardless of the complexities of curriculum and schooling, ideology and economies, we need to focus more on the importance of the relationships that learners have with their teachers, who are hopefully learners too. This is the heart of the experience of learning and feeling valued in any community.
The delegates at this TEDxLondon event are being encouraged to make a pledge that will make a difference. I pledge to do better in genuinely connecting with the young people in the schools and spaces I work and learn.
