I would like to take a moment to introduce Kevin Hewitson a new staff blogger here at ModernTeacher.us. Kevin will be blogging on new learning strategies as well as educational philosophies
Kevin has 36 years experience as a teacher and has been Assistant Head of School responsible for learning strategies and influencing teaching and learning. His aim has always been to engage and challenge both higher performing learners and those who see learning as a challenge. He has taken this work forward independently and is now an educational consultant and keynote speaker working with educational organisations, schools and teachers. He is a practical, innovative, strategic thinker who enjoys finding beneficial and creative solutions for improving teaching and learning. He is creator of a concept he refers to as ‘Learning Intelligence’ (LQ). LQ is defined as the ability to manage your learning environment to meet your learning needs. He is author of many educational resources within the “Teaching Ideas” series and has recently published ‘Understanding Learning Needs’ and is working on ‘LQ, How to Survive Your Education’.
