Modern Learners had a wealth of relevant and thought-provoking content.
Came across this article recently by Ross McMullen for the Headteachers’ Roundtable. It raises some important questions about how some schools end up focussing on Year 11 and giving schools time for embedding improvement strategies.

THIRTY MINUTE INTERVIEW WITH ROB RIORDAN

So if we’re interested in retention of important pieces of the content or significant meanings from the content, then it needs to be transformed in some way.
Alfred North Whitehead wrote about this 100 years ago. He said that inert knowledge is not enough, and he also said, along the lines of the ancients, we should educate for the development of dispositions in the 20th century. Sadly, we have been reduced to teaching subjects. So, the question for someone who is on an exam course is that those courses are about content but they should also be about the development of dispositions. It’s a question about how do we balance the two. How do we ensure that our students are developing and growing around those dispositions of critical thinking, problem-solving and collaboration and so forth?

We had a great time at our Teachmeet this week. We enjoyed some interactive talks on a range of topics including:
Using the Linkee game concept to develop linked questions for key ideas. This is great with older students as a revision tool.
A developed feedback and assessment tool in MFL and use of a vocal recall app which uses QR Codes.
Learning about the Councils plans for Integrating services to support children more effectively.
We enjoyed hearing about how teachers can use Lego as a therapeutic intervention tool and having a go with some augmented reality!
