Authentic Assessment: Writing - Learning for Life

The video introducing Symposium 1(B) Middlesex Annual Learning and Teaching Conference 2019

[The real story behind the symposium: the role of Margaret Thatcher in the National Curriculum and infighting at the BBC that led to the end of public service broadcasting for children. The decoupling of the BBC in-house apprenticeship system. It maybe a story of how outside consultants, deliberately or by default, introduced the US contract culture into UK education.   Was it the journey to create students as paid-for consumers of learning? A theme of the keynote conference speech by Amatery Doku.
Anyone researching the quality of learning and resources of 75 years of BBC School Radio Education broadcasting that ended in 1993? I have a 2hr video interview and 44 page transcript available.]
