Just got back from a Deep Learners Conference in Malaysia. I went with some of my colleagues and presented on “Real Connections”. I posted my first draft up here a couple of weeks ago, but it turned out a lot different after last week. It ended up like this…
A lot of it was the same, but I wanted to make mention of how I kind of wanted the future to look.
One of the most interesting aspects of the conference for me was the focus on bad ideas. I like how we can change our thinking around, how we can look at a bad idea and eliminate the “bad” parts of it.
We had a lot of time to work through our idea, and as a group, we laughed, grew and got to know each other a little better. I think this focus on having a bad idea and honouring it, really helped us as a team.
A couple of my colleagues presented which was nice to see us grow as a school. It was all around a great conference actually. I love the format where you can go and discover new ideas in the morning (no big commitment, only twenty minutes) and then do something in the afternoon.
