I just listened to the pod, Three Golden Rules for supporting autistic pupils and found it so informative. It helped me to further solidify what I could not quite grasp regarding my own 7 year old son’s school environment. We are at a new school, and he is newly diagnosed. This child who was doing quite well at our previous school is now struggling. Though there are other health factors at play (PANS), the rigidity of his teacher has certainly not eased my son’s way. This pod has inspired me to be more proactive in finding the right educational environment/teacher for my son. I think it’s a wonderful episode for parents, teachers, or child care workers in general. I’ve shared it with my spouse, a close friend, my sister, and my son’s therapists. Thank you so much for putting this together for parents/people like me who are searching for answers and understanding.

Rank #1: Podagogy- Season 5, Episode 8 - Knowledge with professor David C Geary

Podcast cover
Read more

“Once you get to real academic learning, the child discovery approach is just not going to work,” explains David C Geary, Curators' Professor in the Department of Psychological Sciences at the University of Missouri, keeping alight the eternal flame of the debate about the best way to teach.

Geary’s statement is based on what is really his secondary research focus: much of his career has been spent looking at how we learn maths, but his surety on how best we should teach in general is based on his theory of primary and secondary knowledge.  

In this podcast, he explains the theory and what impact it should have on teaching.

Rank #19: Podagogy - Season 6, Episode 9 - physical learning with professor Trevor Marchand and Kester Brewin

Podcast cover
Read more

“There is a perception from top to bottom that doing things on paper, doing conceptual thinking, is at the apex of everything, that this is where you want to be,” muses Trevor H J Marchand, Emeritus Professor in the Department of Anthropology and Sociology at SOAS London. “Working with your hands is seen as something for kids who did not quite make it in the classroom."


Speaking on this episode, he explains that this needs to change, urgently. 


“We need to broaden our understanding of what knowledge and what intelligence is,” argues Marchand. “Until we establish a new values system, we are going to struggle to get the hands on learning into the curriculum and have respect for it.”


He and Kester Brewin discuss why this is, taking in everything from building Minarets in Yemen to 2.6m tall people in the classroom.
