“Observation and theory get on best when they are mixed together, both helping one another in the pursuit of truth” - Sir Arthur Eddington, 1934
In education, “What works?” is rarely the right question, for the simple reason that in education, just about everything works somewhere, and nothing works everywhere.” - Dylan William, 2016
