Spotlight on Gavin McCormack: The Change that a World-Renowned Educator Wants to See in the World
Gavin McCormack is an educator and change-maker recognised around the world. From the schools he's built in Nepal to the thousands of children he's read to on Zoom this year.
"We need to reach a point where skills are not taught, but experienced, in our classrooms" - this is Gavin's vision for education. We asked Gavin towards the end of the conversation what success would look like for education in 2030 ... don't miss his response. It's likely the most important thing you'll hear today.
If you're an ambitious and empathetic educator, Gavin will speak to you in a new and challenging way. A TEDxSydney speaker, one of the top 10 most influential global educators and nominated for Australian of the year in 2018, Gavin has quite a track record. Learn a little from him today.
