By |May 20th, 2015|Latest News, Swisslog|

Teachers Not Immune To Neuromyths

By |February 12th, 2015|Latest News, Public Relations|

A great, and rightly scathing, short article about the prevalence of so-called neuromyths was published last year in response to a surprising survey of teachers in five countries: see here Whilst the article itself is enlightening, the reader comment ‘why is it always teachers who fall for pyscho-babble?’ seems a tad unfair. How many people fall for horoscopes, or moral panics, or (best whisper this one) religion? Check out what Francis Wheeler thinks about UFOs, superstitions and the response to the death of Princess Diana in “How Mumbo-Jumbo Conquered the World” if you need evidence of how widespread modern delusions can be. Teachers internalise the myths about ‘visual, auditory and kinaesthetic learning’ or ‘only using 10 percent of our brain’ because they’re so damn prevalent. Teachers taking the VAK learning theory too much to heart is potentially harmful, but at [...]

Do the Finns have the best education system?

By |January 10th, 2015|Latest News, Public Relations|

Are the Finns really better than the rest at education? This blog posts questions the media's received wisdom that the OECD league tables tell the whole story... From Start To Finnish A well-circulated story doing the social media rounds states Finland has none of the inspection, curriculum or league table protocols that most other nations have and yet manages to consistently top the education charts. Can it really be true? How do they know if there are no league tables? Surely the internet has not lied to me... Those stories, including other notable educational performances by Japanese, Dutch and Shanghainese students, are prompted by education reports from The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) published every three years. Established in 1961, the origin of the OECD can actually be traced back to its forerunner the OEEC, an organisation set [...]

Does your business suffer from Parkinson’s Law of Triviality?

By |December 9th, 2014|Beno, Latest News, Public Relations, Windsor|

Best known for his adage, “Work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion” former 1950s civil servant, C. Northcote Parkinson, has passed into business folklore as a wry observer of corporate culture. So much so that the law has even gone global, as Mikhail Gorbachev observed in 1986, when Alessandro Natta complained about a swelling bureaucracy in Italy, “Parkinson's Law works everywhere".
