One week on from Helsinki Education Week and the HundrED Summit and Tagtiv8 are still buzzing! Why? It’s all about people – with connections between creative ideas and innovations. It’s sometimes hard to explain the HundrED ethos and community, but we think Derek Newton has summed it up brilliantly in this Forbes magazine article.
There were so many highlights:
- Discovering that Tagtiv8 works in Finnish and Swedish, as well as English
- Reconnecting with wonderful people and organisation from last year
- Meeting new people with incredible innovations and stories
- Listening to inspirational speakers
We have to give a HUGE SHOUT OUT to Sarah Bouchie from the Lego Foundation for nudging us towards their key messages of Learning Through Play:
- Critical Thinking
Lego and Tagtiv8 – a Shared Ethos
Teachers have often likened Tagtiv8 to Lego as we provide play-based learning opportunities for children of all ages – even ‘older children’ such as these. Our tags are like Lego pieces – the building blocks of learning.
Creativity is essential to Tagtiv8. Want to know more? Read this blog.
