Welcome to The Learning Hack, a podcast about the people and technologies that are shaping the future of learning.

Oct 3, 2022

Children often ask challenging questions, but according to John's guest this time, we should see these as valuable opportunities for learning. Dr Rebecca Rolland is a speech pathologist and education lecturer whose recently published book, “The Art of Talking with Children”, gives parents and educators practical strategies for holding what she calls 'rich 'conversations' which she sees as central to effective parenting and education. John discusses these strategies with Rebecca, and explores how applicable these techniques might be to older students and the field of workplace learning.
