The Learning Renaissance

Enquiring Minds and the Nature of Evidence


A friend has brought this website to my attention in which members of the public are engaged to demand a higher standard of evidence in the claims made by people and companies. The term evidence is used very loosely in general parlance and both my science leaning friends and myself as a former teacher of History are often driven to apoplexy by the loose ways in which the term is used.

Anything which develops the spirit of inquiry is to be applauded and perhaps this represents one strand of the internet promoting the participative development of democracy… or maybe not.

Ask for Evidence

About educationalist04

I'm convinced we can, as a species, do much better than this if we set our minds to being much more positive and productive towards our fellow humans. The solution is learning - creating independent and autonomous learners who can problem solve, innovate and create a better more equitable and sustainable world. My books, Future Proof Your School and Re-Examining Success together with this blog, explore how better learning outcomes for all can be achieved.
