What a joy to be able to unpick the difficulties and celebrations of teenagers with the brilliant Dr Pooky Knightsmith on her podcast: Pooky Ponders, and find ways that as educators we can better engage them in learning…

 Topics covered:

  • Teens’ place in society
  • The Teenage Brain
  • Why teens do risky things
  • What toddlers can teach us about teens
