In this episode, I interview Chris Edwards, the CEO of Green School Taranaki in New Zealand. Before starting this school in early 2020, Chris was head of the United World College of South East Asia (UWCSEA), one of the largest international schools in the world; now he is building a much smaller school that is all about building a learning community in which much learning takes place outdoors and across subject boundaries.
In the interview, Chris recommends Planet of the Humans - a film that is freely available online and definitely worth watching. He also mentions the Mastery Transcript Consortium, a network of schools that want to certify learning in a way that goes beyond numeric grades in a small set of subjects - a fascinating initiative that I want to learn more about.
As always, if you have any comments, questions or suggestions for guests, I'd be happy to hear from you. Email me at [email protected]
