What do we mean by leadership?⤴

from @ Pedagoo.org

This is a more difficult question than you might at first think. If someone says they word ‘leadership’ to you, what do you first think of? In my experience at least, for my many teachers in Scotland the answer is ‘promotion’. We say things like ‘I’m not interested in leadership‘ by which we mean ‘I’m […]

Unleashing Learners & Educational Leaders #PedagooMuckle⤴

from @ Pedagoo.org

I was lucky enough to be involved in the fantastic #PedagooMuckle yesterday…what a day! It was great to meet so many new folk and I’m very excited to see what happens next… At SCEL we are really proud to have supported this event and we’re looking forward to seeing what other teacher-led professional learning events we […]

Just realised that I’ve not lined up anyone to select some of this week’s #PedagooFriday tweets so thought I’d treat myself and do it myself! #PedagooFriday using the #iPad and #imovie to make 'particle videos' with Y7, the breakdancing liquids were simply brilliant — Andy Calvert (@MrACalvert) October 18, 2013 Year 8 testing kites in [...]

How could Pedagoo be improved?⤴

from @ Pedagoo.org

In a previous post I suggested that it might be a good time for us to reflect on what’s working with Pedagoo and what could be improved.

The Professional Enquiry Process⤴

from @ Pedagoo.org

In case you missed it, the revised GTCS Professional Standards came into effect this month. Professional enquiry features highly in these new standards and yet many might not quite feel confident enough to engage in professional enquiries without significant external support, which might not be forthcoming. Whilst I hope that support will be forthcoming, I [...]

A selection of #PedagooFriday tweets 16-08-13⤴

from @ Pedagoo.org

Lots of Scottish schools started the new academic year this week, so here’s our first selection of #PedagooFriday tweets of the year 13/14. Pedagoo is a community of teachers and so we prefer it if lots of different teachers select the tweets each week. If you fancy giving it a go drop us an email [...]

A time for reflection? #PedagooReflect⤴

from @ Pedagoo.org

As we near the end of another academic year, it seems like potentially a good time to reflect on our professional learning. There’s only one week of term left here in Scotland, and even if you don’t finish up this week there’ll only be a maximum of a few more weeks left of school before [...]
