A Presentation was made to a select number of school administrators and teacher leaders in Comox, on the afternoon of the 5th March which used some of the slides from the presentation made earlier at Salt Spring.  This, like the one in Victoria, then led on to a considerable discussion about the ideas developed in Overschooled but Undereducated.

In addition to looking at the presentation itself participants may well find it helpful to read the Paper, Lieutenant Peter Puget, the grain of the brain and modern society’s failure to understand adolescents, prepared for the conference of BC Superintendents in 2004. For those wanting a resume of a first-level introduction to these ideas see An introductory explanation of the disconnect between the organisation of English schools and what the neurobiological, cognitive and behavioural sciences are discovering about the operation of the human brain, and how humans learn.
