"I've been describing Dan Haesler as Australia's Sir Ken Robinson. A deep thinker with a real passion and heart for improving education outcomes for young people." - Dr Tim Kitchen, Adobe

"Dan Haesler is doing wonderful work incorporating some of the concepts of positive psychology with his vision of a 21st century education." - Tal Ben-Shahar PhD, NY Times Best-Selling Author

"Dan Haesler is an inspirational teacher. He brings a fresh, moving and often amusing perspective to an issue that is all too often, left on the periphery of education thinking - the mental health of our children." - Richard Gerver, Author & Speaker

#SchoolOfThought - A Collection of Essays, Blog Posts and Random Thought Bubbles is Dan Haesler's first book.

Whether it resonates, challenges or irritates, it is written not in the hope that readers will like it, rather they will think about it.

He says, "In my keynotes I go to great lengths to stress that whilst I might have expertise, it's likely I haven't met them, their staff, their students or their wider community. To be clear, I'm not the expert in their community. They are. So with that in mind, this collection of essays, blog-posts and thought-bubbles are offered by way of saying, 'Here are some ideas, maybe a bit of research and opinions of other experts. How might you make them relevant in your context?'"

To attempt to create some sort of structure, the book is split into broad themes;

Wellbeing - with a focus on mental health, and societal attitudes towards it.

Engagement - the most over-used word in education.

Mindset - exploring the theory of Carol Dweck.

Techy-Stuff - blogs, social media and how we address technology in schools.

Etc. - stuff Dan likes but can't categorise into one of the above themes.

#SchoolOfThought is aimed at anyone with an interest in education, young people or the future of learning.
