IH 60 Conference

My own session is running at 2.00pm on the Friday and it looks at small things that we can do to make our classrooms a better place and to encourage better learner behaviours and better learning behaviours.  It’s based around some of the work of behavioural economist and writer Dan Ariely and in particular, two TED talks he gave on the way we make decisions and on what motivates us to do good work.  If you want to do a little background viewing beforehand, the TED talks are given below:
