Therefore I could understand when you mentioned " the best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago.
I am working my way through this video and find it really intersting. The best part so far is when one of the Neils asks the participants about different activities and how they might be transformed into tasks. This exercise is really revealing, and I am looking forward to applying this to my lesson plans for the coming week's classes. The shift in mindset is palpable and will make the activities in class much more interesting for students.
