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!

Whilst this blog post is essentially US based there are some predictions well worth thinking about. Having watched 'Most Likely to Succeed' last week I would also suggest that there are a few more that could be added, particularly for secondary hill.

1. Exam based assessment be a thing of the past - why ask students to perform in isolation without access to information? They will never have to do this again in their lives!

2. Subject integration has to be the norm, where in life to we face an issue to only consider one aspect?

Any others you can think of?

Feedback Tool

Love the resources from Ewan McIntosh via No Tosh

This is a great visual about giving feedback, great for senior students or teachers for a range of situations.

Mindsets and Mathematics

A great video from Jo Boalar, Stanford University, that explores both of these ideas.
