  • Flow Learning

    9th June 2018

    How do you achieve Flow in the classroom? We have designed our T&L guide with Flow in mind.

    The guide has been put together based on research and the experience of our team of teachers and leaders. It is based on 3 key pillars:

    5th June 2015

    Catharsis - the process of releasing, and thereby providing relief from, strong or repressed emotions.

    It is a common complaint: that in our ever-increasingly connected society, we are increasingly disconnected from the real world and face to face connections.   Watching students and their friends walk into school together with one headphone installed in one ear and the other dangling loose, you begin to be concerned for their generation and ironically their communication skills.
