He has been featured in a BBC documentary about Philosophy for Children, acclaimed as a Future 500 forward- thinker, and is an ICOT (International Conference on Thinking) Presenter.

The Learning Pit is for the teachers, leaders and support staff who wish to guide their students in the development of critical, creative, caring and collaborative thinking.
