Book of the Week – The Big Book of Independent Thinking (Ed. Ian Gilbert)

The Big Book of Independent Thinking
Do things no one does or do things everyone does in a way no one does
Edited by Ian Gilbert

Independent Thinking Ltd is a unique network of educational innovators and practitioners who work throughout the UK and abroad with children and their teachers and school leaders. It was established in 1993 by Ian Gilbert to ‘enrich young people’s lives by changing the way they think – and so to change the world’ by delivering in-school training, development, coaching and consultancy. Ian achieved his objective by gathering together a disparate group of associates – specialists in the workings of the brain, discipline, emotional intelligence, ICT, motivation, using music in learning, creativity and dealing with the disaffected. This book is a collection of the best work from his associates, including: ‘How the ‘Brian’ Works’ by Andrew Curran, Consultant Paediatric Neurologist at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital, ‘Living a Creative Life’ by Roy Leighton, author, coach, trainer and lecturer at the European Business School, ‘Build the Emotionally Intelligent School’ by Michael Brearley, author, trainer, coach and former head teacher, ‘On Love, Laughter and Learning’ by David Keeling, actor, drummer, magician, comedian and educationalist, ‘Music and the Mind’ by Nina Jackson, opera-trained music teacher and a specialist in special needs, music therapy and teacher training, ‘The Disciplined Approach’ by Jim Roberson, former American football player, coach and teacher, ‘Peek! Copy! Do! The Creative Use of IT in the Classroom’ by Guy Shearer, Director of the Learning Discovery Centre, Northampton, ‘The Best is the Enemy of the Good’ by Matt Gray, theatre director and teacher at Carnegie Mellon University.
