Episode 6

Louka Parry: We are human beings, not humans doings

This episode is the second part of a two part series of exchanges between Louka Parry, CEO of the Learning Future and host of the Learning Future podcast, and me. I was thrilled to be a guest on Louka's podcast (part 1) and even more thrilled to have Louka on this episode. In addition his role at Learning Future, Louka is a Founding Executive of Karanga: the Global Alliance for SEL and Life Skills. A former teacher, he became a school principal at 27 years old and was named Inspirational Public Secondary Teacher of the Year for South Australia. He has since trained thousands of educators and leaders globally to increase their positive impact. He is a linguist, a world traveller, incredibly well-read and thoughtful, and his perspective on many issues are sure to move your thinking. In this episode, we ask:

  • How can we move from one learning standard to one learning ecosystem, with many journeys possible?
  • How does "success for us" change if we re-think the boundaries of "us?"
  • What would an explicit curriculum of kindness look like?
