I write to build your cognitive toolkit.

Where does our curiosity go? I write to re-discover the curiosity we had when we were 6. It helps me process my thinking and build your cognitive toolkit with insights and a new perspective.

My name is Tom Barrett; I spent ten years teaching in primary schools in the UK and the last decade as an education consultant and coach.

I have written about learning, leadership and innovation for over fifteen years.

Every Friday

The Dialogic Learning Weekly helps educators and innovation leaders enhance their practice by sharing weekly provocations, ideas and mental models.

Every Friday, I publish a weekly email which has been going strong for six years now with over 270 issues.

>> You need a reliable source of regular inspiration that saves you time and provokes your thinking.

>> A short read that offers clear next steps from idea to action.

>> You need the talking points and prompts to lead your team and the readings to back it up.

>> Save time with a thought-provoking weekly newsletter designed to build your cognitive toolkit and enhance your practice.
