  •

Teacher Agency vs The Collective Voice - The Learner's Way - 6 views

We've always done it that way - The Learner's Way - 10 views

  •  
    Experience shapes our understanding of the world and our responses to it. Our past influences our decision making and constrains our imaginations of what is and is not possible. Understanding this is a crucial step towards change; a first step towards discovering a better way to do things. Until we understand how our experience is limiting our imaginations we will continue to be restrained by the way things have always been done.

When we look at some of the research behind intelligence we find that our assumptions based on what we were once told about it need to be updated.

    Teachers are a busy lot. We are a profession whose workload seems to be forever on the rise and as much as you do, there is always more to be done, more to be learned, new challenges to be surmounted and exciting new opportunities to be explored. For all of this it is important to make the most efficient use of the tools we have at our disposal. Google Forms can help.
