Outside of my daily work, I am involved in a few broader projects.
- Open Education Europa – a European Commission initiative at the Institute of Prospective Technological Studies to envision the role of open source technology in school education of the future. Visit the portal.
- Policy First – a Teach First policy development programme to generate evidence-based recommendations for presentation to and regular discussion with government and shadow-cabinet education ministers.
- Think Tank Review – a new initiative championing the best ideas for the future of politics, economics and society. A hub for reviews of the latest output from the UK’s leading think tanks. Visit us here.
- Ashoka Changemaker Schools – Ashoka are creating a network of schools united in their commitment to the cultivation of empathy, teamwork, leadership, and changemaking in their students. Ready more here.
- 5×15 Stories – this is a fabulous literary events series run by Daisy Leitch and Eleanor O’Keeffe. I’ve played the role of powerpoint technician, usher and #1 fan. Visit the website to watch 15 minute videos of talks and buy tickets for events.
