Today my guest is Heather MacDonald, an Education Specialist and Primary School Teacher. Heather has been designing, developing and implementing education programs and strategies for non-profit and other organisations for over 20 years. In this episode we explore a range of global sporting events, including the Olympic and Paralympic Games and how they provide a meaningful, engaging and practical context for learning and community connection. Heather outlines the value of “twenty-first century skills” including problem solving, critical thinking, and teamwork. She also explains some of the practical adjustments made to her programs in response to the global pandemic and the increasing significance of student-voice in tackling a range of problems: big and small, local and global.
