A little bit about yourself

David had an inglorious start to his education career, failing everything at school and dropping out at sixteen! Later, and after attending the University of Sussex, he started his teaching career in the dock area of the East End of London. He learned a great deal through the experience, especially the most efficient ways to inspire children to learn. Later, he was Head of Social Studies at a high school in the industrial north of England before entering teacher training. Moving to California he taught at San Diego State University and other Californian universities before moving to New Zealand. He started to write material for teachers and ended up writing, as co-author, some forty nine books (teaching packs). He has given many presentations at national and international conferences. He established a non-profit in California (Teachers Education Institute - TEI) and now researches and writes reports on what works and what doesn’t work in education.

What would you be interested in discussing at these sessions?

1) Very dangerous time re evolution of humankind. 2) what part does education play in this? 3) what can we expect and what can we do about it? 4) lots more but I think that is enough for now :)
