The new sciences of brain and mind are revealing that everyone has the capacity to become a powerful, lifelong learner. We can all learn how to learn; it has little to do with conventional intelligence or educational success. Guy Claxton teaches us how to raise children who are curious and confident explorers, and how we ourselves can learn to pair problem-solving with creativity. Wise Up is essential and compelling reading for parents, educators and managers alike. Guy Claxton is Emeritus Professor of The Learning Sciences at the University of Winchester.
