Speaker's Biography

Mae Alex Beard wedi gweithio mewn addysg am ddegawd. Ar ôl dechrau fel athro Saesneg mewn ysgol gyfun yng nghanol dinas, cwblhaodd ei MA yn y Sefydliad Addysg cyn ymuno â Teach For All, rhwydwaith cynyddol o sefydliadau annibynnol sy'n gweithio i sicrhau bod pob plentyn yn cyflawni ei botensial. Mae'n ffodus i dreulio llawer o'i amser yn teithio'r byd yn chwilio am yr arferion addysgol mwyaf addawol ac yn rhannu ei ddysgu ag athrawon, arweinwyr ysgolion a llunwyr polisi mewn 46 o wledydd. Hyd yn hyn, mae wedi ymweld ag ysgolion yn hanner o'r rhain. Mae wedi ysgrifennu ar gyfer The Independent, The Financial Times a Wired. Dyma ei lyfr cyntaf. Mae Alex Beard ar gael am gyfweliadau ac i ysgrifennu erthyglau.

In his book Natural Born Learners, education insider Alex Beard takes us on a dazzling tour of the future of learning to show how we can - and why we must - do better. Weaving together expert insight, entertaining anecdote and intelligent research, Beard leads us from the crowded corridors of a London comprehensive to the high-tech halls of Silicon Valley, through the exam factories of South Korea to the inclusive classrooms of Finland to reveal that today we stand on the cusp of a learning revolution. Tackling everything from artificial intelligence to our growing understanding of the infant brain, from the roots of creativity to the way classrooms can be unwitting engines of extremism, this book is a user's guide to transforming learning in the twenty-first century and roadmap to accessing our better future selves.
