This is an example of looking for work and taking action. One day one of my amazing subscribers sent me this email about David Price’s new book ‘OPEN’:
“…I also was thinking of you on the plane home, because I was reading OPEN: How we’ll work, live and learn in the future by David Price… you may already have seen/read it, but if not, it is fascinating and well worth a look :)”
Not only did I take a look, but I stumbled on an interview Twitter Chat with David just days after this tip! What’s David saying? Well, some really exciting things…or scary things, depending on how you look at it :D
“50% of workers will be freelance in 5 years. We’re going to need communicators, collaborators, designers, problem-finders, cultural knowers. Our National Curriculum is too static, too rigid. Politicians are aware – just don’t want to face it.” Yikes! Right?
Here’s an examples of how to to throw yourself into a twitter chat with someone you admire…
Since this exciting twitter conversation, I got involved in the planning of the UK’s first ever Politics in Education Summit which is now a free eCourse where you can learn directly from our national leaders on Education & Policy: how to recast our Government as a lever we can learn to understand and use effectively, rather than the provider of a service we critique.
