Julia Briggs was an educator for 12+ years, taught science and chemistry in the United Kingdom and then in Colombia, where she led the Chemistry team. Julia  has worked as an adult learning facilitator for the past 3 years and now works as head of operations for Education to Change the World. She has a master's degree in educational leadership from Tampere University of Applied Sciences in Finland.

Some Key Takeaways:
  • We need to be educating students for the future right now instead of using the past to educate for tomorrow.
  • The concept of order delivery is key to build student autonomy.
  • The Acquire, Connect, Transfer (ACT) model helps us really transform how and what we teach to students in the classroom so that education improves.
  • It's important to look at the framework for change and jump in before you are ready. If you wait until you're ready, you will never start the change.
  • What we teach in school matters because we are creating humans who are expected to contribute to society. Some of those contributions may be good and some of those contributions may be bad, but either way, they are going to contribute. So, let's make it a positive contribution.
  • Sense-making is incredibly powerful because when you have that "ah-ha" moment you adapt and understand and become addicted to that positive reinforcement feel resulting in intrinsic motivation to be curious.
  • Opening the mind and being empowered brings success, which in turn breeds confidence.
