Learning with Mind & Heart

Learning is a distinctive feature of human kind and we begin to develop it at an early stage of our lives. Some surrounded by the love and protection of their families, others in less privileged environments.

It is when it comes to schooling that we are confronted with a new reality that involves learning about the world outside home and beside others.

In this scenario, how can teachers and heads make sure the time spent by children at their schools challenges their minds, fosters creativity and develops a compassionate heart?

This conference will be unpacking different aspects of learning to address the development of the mind and the heart.
