Reviews

"This book offers a fresh and engaging overview of the New Zealand education system with provocations and practical suggestions for the classroom teacher, whether international or local. There is a clear emphasis on New Zealand's learner-centric approach which positions both teachers and students as lifelong learners who inquire, explore, and grow in a high-trust model. New Zealanders will be reminded of just how lucky they are, and international educators will be inspired to adapt best-practice examples for their own context. Written with Richard's typical gentle sense of humour, this is a highly enjoyable and thought-provoking read." -Philippa Nicoll Antipas, Connected Learning Advisor, CORE Education, @AKeenReader "Richard Wells paints a powerful portrait of what learning looks like in New Zealand and encourages educators to reflect and act on how they can move forward within their own schools. These narratives from around the world help create a story of what is possible in schools today no matter where you are in the world." -George Couros, division principal of Innovative Teaching and Learning, Parkland School Division, @gcouros "In a desperate search for innovation in twenty-first-century education, Richard Wells decided to take a look at the New Zealand public school system. His book, A Learner's Paradise, explores the initiatives that his country has put into place which challenge the status quo and foster a forward-thinking approach to putting students on a successful path to lifelong learning. I hope everyone interested in the futures of all young people will take the opportunity to read this book." -C. M. Rubin, author, The Global Search for Education
