Like Skool, But Better. | Gavin McCormack & Dan Lakis - 790

View descriptionShare

Today, I had the pleasure of talking with Gavin McCormack and his brilliant friend, Dan Lakis, diving deep into the world of education and learning. What could unfold if us 'grown-ups' and our traditional 'the-way-it's-always-been-done' philosophy stood back for a second to consider taking a new approach to teaching and developing the minds of the next generation?

The lads and I explored the profound impact of connection, empathy, and real-world learning experiences. Gavin shared his journey from being a teacher (as we've previously discussed his Montessori method) to leading impactful projects that transform lives. Dan introduced innovative approaches to spark critical thinking and creativity in students. Did I mention Dan was the founding Vice Principal of Ad Astra, Elon Musk's school at SpaceX? (Just sayin').

We talked about the critical impact of building trust, fostering creativity, and empowering children to take ownership of their learning. Gavin's stories highlighted how connecting with students on a personal level can significantly enhance their educational experience, and Dan's insights on promoting curiosity and critical thinking were absolute eye-openers. (Where were these blokes when I was chained to the classroom?)

Just like my last banter with Gavin, this one sparked so much of my interest around how we think, learn, create, and impact the world we live in. You're going to love it!!
