The Learning Renaissance

Why Behaviour Management is Not Where We Should Be Going


Fiona Holiday writes insightfully about the blind alley that is behaviour management and control in schools. She focuses on learned behaviour and the ability of adults to develop young people with appropriate responses.

Understanding how we learn self-regulation can transform how we approach behaviour. When a child is struggling to manage their feelings of anger or excitement, when they are not able to listen or concentrate, when they are constantly arguing with their friends, this tells us that they are overwhelmed in some way.

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.
