PARENTSPARK EVENT: ALAN MCLEAN – HELPING YOUR CHILD TO LEARN ON SAT 20 SEPTEMBER
Learning new stuff comes fairly easily when we’re motivated, but can be so hard when we’re not. Alan Mclean will join us for an interactive discussion on the most crucial aspect of education: what makes children want to learn and what can turn them off? Alan is based in Glasgow where he’s worked as a mainstream teacher, special school teacher and educational psychologist. His passion is what motivates (and demotivates) children and young people to learn. He is also the author of numerous books including Motivating Every Learner and The Motivated School.

The workshop will introduce a model that brings together the most up to date psychological thinking to shine a light on the best kind of adult/ child relationships that generate energy for learning.
