The Power of Repetition by @MrPatelsawesome - 25 views

  •  
    "Rote learning defined as trying to learn something by repeating over and over has, in recent years, fallen out of fashion with western educationalists. However, I believe that fundamentally, repetition can underpin learning."

Being happy in Bradford via #BGShappiness - UKEdChat.com - 5 views

  •  
    "With a major focus on wellbeing and mental-health among many communities around the UK, staff and pupils at Bradford Grammar School are taking things one step further, with a 'Spotlight on Happiness' focusing on actions that can improve the mental resilience of all.

    In tandem with the England government's pledge of £1.25 billion to improve children and young people's mental health services, the Department of Health and NHS England published 'Future in mind', with a proposal to encourage schools to continue to develop 'whole school approaches' to promoting emotional well-being and mental health."

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?"

UKEdMag: Digital Assistants by @ICTMagic - 15 views

  •  
    "Virtual Assistants have been with us for a while and many of us have had experiences similar to the dialogue above. However, they are getting better and becoming more of an assistant than a hindrance. Apple, Google, Microsoft and Amazon all have voice activated assistance. I've used them all at different times for my personal use, especially Google Now, but Amazon's Alexa assistant is the only one I've used in the classroom via an Amazon echo. Many of the following ideas can be done on any of the above assistants, but I will focus on Amazon's Alexa."

Using praise (in brief) by @thisiseducation - 13 views

  •  
    "Praise seems such an obvious part of a teacher's role that it is often overlooked. However, like all tools the use of praise does need constant practice and planning in order for it to become a positive habit. With care, its use can be a highly effective intervention that supports young people with social, emotional or mental health needs as well as benefitting all pupils."
