The Science of Achievement
The Institute of Positive Education (IPE) is a ground-breaking initiative by Geelong Grammar School, the first school to embed the principles of Positive Psychology into all aspects of school life.
The IPE’s primary role is to deliver transformational educational programmes to promote wellbeing throughout the world. The IPE aims to teach students valuable life skills on which they can increase their learning capacity and build a successful and happy life.
This one day Conference will explore “The Science of Achievement”. When you think back to all the students you have taught – there are some who just stand out as being exceptional, brilliant. There are also a whole group of others who enjoyed great success and superior achievement in your classroom. What is it about these students that made them so successful? Do they actually have a ‘gift’ that others don’t have? For decades, the fields of education and psychology have debated the concept of giftedness and argued about what ‘talent’ is and even whether it actually exists. But in the last few years, a powerful and surprising story has begun to emerge from the scientific research. The highest achieving students in each of our schools are ‘gifted’ – but not in the way we might have first thought
