AISACT Leadership Breakfast – Speaker: David Price OBE

The AISACT Leadership Breakfast, held on 24 March at the National Museum of Australia, brought together teachers and leaders from ACT schools across all sectors of education, and from the wider education community.

By presenting a cogent argument on how education, innovation and aspiration are linked, David Price OBE challenged attendees on why and how the delivery of education needs to adapt and evolve to truly prepare students to meet the challenges of the 21st century.

Attendees were left with a quote from John Dewey, which stated, “If we teach today’s students as we taught yesterday’s, we rob them of tomorrow”. David engaged the audience further through questions and comments that unpacked his ideas further and gave them a local connection

The AISACT Leadership Breakfast series continues to seek to challenge the thinking of educators and those involved in the ACT education community by providing access to interesting and thought provoking speakers.

The next AISACT Leadership Breakfast will be held on Thursday 9 June, and with eSafety commissioner Alastair MacGibbon, as guest speaker.
