Review:

At regular points in their career every teacher should take the time to remind themselves why they went into teaching and this is the book that to do it. Exciting, inspirational, motivating yet down-to-earth a thinking and learning vitamin boost of a book. Lyn Bull Independent Education Consultant, G&T Consultant, MFL Consultant --Lyn Bull Independent Education Consultant, G&T Consultant, MFL Consultant

The title in itself is attention grabbing for anyone who feels the system is no longer satisfying their needs as an educator. This is a book for pioneers, dreamers and realists. It contains ideas on different methodologies of how to impart information in a variety of ways that meets the needs of students in a formal educational system. However, those of you who are trainers in the business world, this book contains some interesting concepts that are just as important for education in the workplace. Corporate businesses are complaining that school, college and university leavers are not capable of entering the job market when they leave formal education. Ian Gilbert and his associates have since 1993 been quietly creating a grass roots evolution in attitude and skills of educators or should I say those who have ears to listen. Ian Gilbert has cleverly shown the power of joint venturing skills and techniques within the educational arena by compiling this book. Although it is aimed at teachers within the educational system, this book is highly practical for a trainer in the business arena. This book is designed to get educators to think outside the box for strategies which they can pass onto their students and/or clients so that they are better equipped to absorb information more effectively, apply it creatively, improve the bottom line of examination results or even the bottom line of a company . Independent thinking is also what brings about innovations that improve the quality of life for many. So whether it is emotional intelligence, modelling, enjoyment, creativity, the use of music, drama, imagination in learning, this is a truly stimulating book for those educators who wish to be at the forefront of independent thinking and producing greater results in a system that is being strangled with more and more red-tape. An enjoyable selection of how to and what do you think is contained within this book. Kathleen Ginn, Author of The Secret Learning Code and co-creator of Rapid Sensory Learning --Kathleen Ginn, Author of The Secret Learning Code and co-creator of Rapid Sensory Learning

This book will make you rethink your whole approach to young people. With the benefits of not one but eight experts in their field, you will have all the ideas you ll need to motivate your students - and yourself. Stop struggling to get through to your students, get a copy of this book. Terry Hart, Director, Bookworms of Reigate, and former FE Lecturer --Terry Hart, Director, Bookworms of Reigate, and former FE Lecturer

Synopsis:

Ten years ago a company called Independent Thinking was set up to "enrich people's lives by changing the way they think - and so to change the world". Since then Ian Gilbert and his unique team of associates have challenged, educated and entertained hundreds of thousands of young people, teachers, governors and educational decision makers across the UK and beyond. This book captures some of the organisation's best ideas and innovations in areas from neuroscience and learning skills to creativity, motivation and emotional intelligence. What's more, it will encourage you to follow the Independent Thinking motto: Do things no-one does or do things everyone does in a way no-one does.
