Why Blog?

I love to share things I come across with colleagues, parents and friends and others interested in matters to do with education. I am particularly interested in inquiry learning, gifted education, fostering independence and growing emotional literacy in our children. You may find posts interesting, you may not. You may agree, you may not but the important thing is you ponder about how it sits with you and your learning journey.

Have a great day!

The Learning Never Stops

I think it is readily accepted now that great teachers never stop learning. The exciting thing is that opportunities to be involved in worldwide lectures and seminars seem to be increasing. The challenge remains is how to find the time to fit these things into our already full days. We are so busy creating learning for others we forget to look after ourselves.

The beauty of a site like this one is you can register your interest and watch the webinar at a time that suits. Alternatively you can look at webinars that have been pre-recorded and uploaded to the site.

Here is a link to the University of California : Irvine that hosts a myriad of webinars that may interest.
