Maintaining Enthusiasm - 0 views

  •  
    "Many teachers think that teaching is the best profession in the world. It is also true that many teachers find that maintaining enthusiasm, in the face of myriad issues which hinder teachers being allowed to just teach, can be difficult at times. Furthermore, even the most enthused student can take a knock in motivation day to day, lesson to lesson."

Resource: Mr Selfie Video - 0 views

  •  
    "Although many schools ban smartphones, the reality is that many pupils have them hidden away, or are an integral part of their lives once they leave the premises. The 'Selfy' phenomenon is clearly here to stay, but this video (created by London-based design and animation studio weareseventeen) illustrates how we can easily be distracted with our devices, missing out on the world around us - which could be useful for a discussion / assembly activity within schools when talking about online use or safety:"

Why do we need a Great School Libraries campaign? by @ElizabetHutch - 0 views

  •  
    "School librarians are information professionals, who can support and teach information, critical and digital literacy skills. Research skills from finding books via your school library catalogue to researching academic online resources such as Science in Context, helping students to navigate those online tools that can't be searched with a question (like they like do in Google), explaining and using keywords, creating good research questions and guiding them onto the internet searching with the knowledge and skills about how to do this safely."

10 Techniques every teacher needs to know by @RichardJARogers - 2 views

  •  
    "I've found that there are many simple techniques that I need to adopt on a daily basis to be exceptional at my job. I'm not talking about that seminar you went to where you had to spend hours planning the so-called 'perfect lesson'. I'm talking about real stuff: things we can actually do that make a difference, and don't eat into our free time."

Practical Problem-Solving - 4 views

  •  
    "Business and the media are constantly screaming that problem solving skills and creative thinking are the keys to innovation and success (and the beat the robots trying to take your job), yet many teachers feel that the skills and opportunities to develop them are often an add-on, an after thought, or taught in isolation during special activities, like a STEM week. Even these activities have a particular expected method which the pupils must 'discover', rather than completely new and unique solutions. How can we develop the skills to help our pupils think of the unexpected?"
