Presenters: Kate Houlton & Sarah Bailey
The arrival of Covid-19 has encouraged deeper reflection on how we live together as a society.
During the pandemic, teachers have continued to serve our schools and children. This has included trying to blend learning in the digital and physical worlds, supporting children through uncertainty, addressing the symptoms of inequality, and making decisions about how to keep their school community well.
‘Textbook’ aimed to create a spirit of optimism about the potential for schools, based on the wisdom of teachers. The project was a collaboration between ten teachers from across England, SarahBailey as Learner in Residence, and Heart of Glass. Together they reflected upon their experiences of learning, explored fundamental questions about schools, and shared their hopes for children and young people in the future.
The discussions were captured in a pamphlet which will be circulated slowly and informally through social and professional networks, encouraging the conversation to continue. This interactive presentation will invite participants to deepen discussion based on extracts from the pamphlet.
Commissioned by Heart of Glass, a St Helens, Merseyside-based collaborative and social arts agency.
