  • How to use connected learning?

    By Alan Peters, 24 Jan 2020

    Connected learning is cross curricular work with all the bad bits taken out.  Christmas Dinner without the Brussel sprouts; Bake Off without Paul Hollywood (I’ll never forgive him for not giving the title to Kim Joy); Still Open All Hours without the script.  You get the idea. Now, if...

    By Ryan Crawley, 24 Jan 2020

    When schools started originally eyeing steps to move towards the one to one (1:1) computer initiative about a decade or so ago, they were interested in having technology available for everyone. It was the goal of having one computer device available for every student that was in the school. This...

    Whether you teach in elementary, middle or a high school, you will always find some reluctant learners that are difficult to reach.

  • What Does Teaching Mean to You?

    By Alan Peters, 24 Jan 2020

    What teaching means to most practitioners is a chance to make a difference, a love of working with young people and a job which offers infinite variety.  A career can potentially last for more than forty years (scary); in all likelihood no two days in that time are completely the same. ...

  • What do pupils want from teachers?

    By Mark Richards, 24 Jan 2020

    If you were to ask pupils up and down the country what they want from their teachers, or even - What do you think makes a good teacher? – you would get some pretty similar responses. This would be regardless of class, creed or location. Why? Because, deep down, pupils want very similar...
