Callum James is a music and events entrepreneur, Founder of Zeal Movement and Event Connect. We are going to hear from his rollercoaster experience in both life and education and stressing how personalized learning can benefit disruptive youngsters in many ways.  “Teachers were not prepared; they do not have time. For them, it is way easier to just take the disrupted kids out from the classroom, rather than focusing on whatcould be the actual problem and how to resolve them.”   “Pupil referral units definitely provided much more support than mainstream schools, however, no one was learning anything.”   “Doing practical things rather than just sitting there and regurgitating informationbenefited me much more than the theory side of things.”   “I got arrested for assault from age 13 and was sent to a young offendersinstitute. Within that time where I actually benefited the most was fromcounselling.”   “The main downfall of mainstream education is insufficient facilities and funds tofocus on young people that have underlying issues.”   “Mainstream education says that everyone learns differently, yet they teach everyone in the same way.”

Join us this week in Third Millennium Education where we are delighted to welcome Marty Cofie, a creative innovator, personal trainer and educator with three children, two still at school and adapting to home learning during the pandemic. I talk to her about her experience of education, and how she helped her kids to adapt with learning during Covid-19 lockdown period.  Marty Cofie says “I'd say my first thing would be a lot of listening. A lot of listening. So watching, listening humbly and encouraging their children and also letting them teach me stuff because the curriculum that my children were learning is some of it is stuff that if I did learn it, I don't remember it.” Third Millennium Education, it is a collection of thoughts and inspirations of stakeholders within education.
