Is your school https compliant? - 9 views

  •  
    "Earlier this year (2018), Google's Chrome web browser began marking sites without HTTPS as non-secure, meaning that when using a website, HTTP connections are being penalised. This has implications for many schools, in that crucial school information placed on the website will get flagged up to potential readers as being insecure"

Reading and Learning - 16 views

  •  
    "Reading and learning seem to go together, but a shift in reading habits is changing the way we consume information and changing our relationship with a book. Should schools embrace this change, or celebrate a traditional model of reading and paper books? How are books being used in today's classrooms, and how could they be used better? What are the reading habits of teachers and how do educators use books to improve their teaching?"

What Should Schools Teach? 10 suggestions by @RichardJARogers - 21 views

  •  
    "I'm one of those few people who can actually say that I use the stuff I was taught in school on daily basis in my job. I'm a Science Teacher: so naturally, I'm teaching my students almost the same things I was taught at school.

    However, there are a lot of things I had to work out by myself when I left school. Was 'personal experience' the best way to learn these things?"

4 online tools to engage teachers in collaboration and information literacy by @Elizabe... - 44 views

  •  
    "Over the last few years, I have spent time trying to work out ways to engage our teachers. We, at Schools' Library Service, have introduced an information literacy framework, created lesson ideas and spent hours talking to teachers about how school librarians can support teaching and learning. I even wrote a blog about 'How to make an information literacy framework work for you", but still some teachers are just too busy to listen."

Online safeguarding: trends, tools and guidelines by @CaynsleyEsafety - 14 views

  •  
    "While every school knows the importance of safeguarding in our digital world, it's also important that they know and understand the most effective strategies to help safeguard their pupils online, both in and out of the classroom.

    The UK Council for Child Internet Safety (UKCCIS), have recently launched a framework which aims to highlight, across all key stages, the skills and knowledge children should have in order to feel safe, and act responsibly, online so that they are able to enjoy the online world."

Speaking the Lingo - 8 views

  •  
    "你知道这是什么意思吗?No? Languages can both be barriers and be bridges. They can block access to learning and more, but knowing a little of 'the lingo' can open previously impenetrable doors. This doesn't have to be a language from overseas, but a certain way of speaking which includes speakers or potenticially excludes non-speakers from a group. Teaching, with it's SPaGs, NPQHs and RQTs can make us want to LOL or even go AWOL!"

What Makes an 'Authentic' Teacher? by @RichardJARogers - 18 views

  •  
    "It was lunchtime but I didn't mind. Neither did my German teacher.

    I ran upstairs and entered her room. She was free - success! I pulled out my listening exam script: a set of learned responses to verbal questions that could come up in my GCSE exam.

    I'm sure she was hungry and I'm sure she wanted lunch. I didn't think about that when I was 16 years old. I probably should have."

Grouping students into ability-based sets holds back less able pupils - 17 views

  •  
    "Students classed as less able are being hindered by being grouped into ability-based sets, according to new research published today in the Cambridge Journal of Education.

    Teachers' expectations of pupils in lower sets, which are based on their prior academic record and closely tied to the belief that their behaviour will be more challenging, could instil a damaging 'culture of dependency' on teachers among these groups."
