Self-Directed Learning and Helping Your Children Own Their Education by Adam Hailstone
We have all heard the phrase, “teach them how to think, not what to think.” This phrase resonates with us because we want to raise children who are problem solvers and entrepreneurs that will create change. But how do we actually teach them to think? In this presentation, Adam Hailstone will teach you the three key principles of great thinking and help you transform the way you look at education. Adam is a thought leader and speaker in the education and leadership fields. He is currently serving as the CMO and Director of Leadership with Williamsburg Learning. He became passionate about education and leadership during college, when he was given an opportunity to travel with two professors and speak to audiences around the United States and Canada about obtaining a liberal arts education.After college, he started two small businesses. But over time it became apparent something was missing. He longed for the opportunity to once again help people obtain a greater education. Then, about 7 years ago, he sold one business and closed the other to help build Williamsburg Learning. Since then Williamsburg has grown by 10 times with students all over the world. He is married to Laura Hailstone and they have a 5 year old son named Emmett.
