Teaching Creative Thinking - 19 views

  •  
    Too often, our students don't get the chance to think beyond the narrow constraints of a curriculum. The focus can be purely on developing the pupils to pass their exams, and not to creatively think how they can overcome challenges that they may soon be faced with. Teaching creative thinking is now, more than ever, crucial to prepare young people for future jobs, societal changes, and life situations which we cannot predict accurately. One thing is for sure, being able to creatively think is a life skill that will support them through the uncertain future ahead, and allowing space and time to develop this capability is essential, with schools well-placed to encourage growth.

Session 344: What is 'outstanding' in education? - 24 views

  •  
    "It is a beacon many professionals aspire towards, and the notion of being labelled as 'outstanding', or not, by others can make or break schools, teachers, and students. There are times where the label 'outstanding' is made by subjective criteria, or judgements are made based on data sets. Either way, aspiring to be outstanding remains high on the agenda for many within education - but what, exactly, is outstanding?"

Session 315: Tips for dealing with disruptive pupils - 28 views

  •  
    "The discussion begun which participants talking about what they viewed as disruption. Most people agreed that swinging on chairs, being late and calling out were disruptive to learning (although many felt that the root causes needed to be identified and addressed), but there was genuine disagreement about pupil interaction and banter with some UKEdChatters saying this was an inappropriate distraction, while others said they enjoyed and welcome this, at least to a point."
