The superpowers we can teach
Ed Fidoe explores the habits and skills which have helped humans succeed for centuries, qualities like speaking skills (oracy), craftsmanship and making connections between subjects. He gives examples of how School 21 has built these skills into the curriculum, the successes and failures, and shares ideas of how to do this while also teaching everything else!
Co-founder of School 21
