Humanitise – a verb or very sound thinking – a guest post by @Humanitise

It has been my distinct pleasure to meet and work with Kevin Matthews of the Thomas Hardye School, Dorchester, whilst taking part on the #ThinkGlobal15 conference tour in Japan. Kevin’s focus in the different events has been his specialist area of expertise surrounding Human Rights education. His school is recognised as a Beacon School in Holocaust Education by the Centre for Holocaust Education at the Institute of Education, UCL.  Kevin’s role at the Thoms Hardye School is Head of Citizenship, Human Rights and Genocide Education. His presentations have focused on what he calls, ‘REI – Respect, Empathy and Inclusion’; the key aspects of citizenship in the curriculum. In his session he talks about the work of Janusz Korczak, a key figure in the focus of children’s rights and according to Kevin, “way ahead of his time” in terms of his thinking of the role of children in society.
