Using stories to support numeracy – Collette Collects – a picture book for number bonds…⤴

from @ Pedagoo.org

It is always good to have a bit of a project for the school holidays. My October holiday project probably should have been having a big tidy-up or finding someone to clean the guttering, but instead I decided to finish writing and illustrating a picture book. This was quite a significant project as I am […]

Shaping our Global Future⤴

from @ Pedagoo.org

Young people worry about the future: including their own personal, family and economic futures. So why don’t we evolve a curriculum that amounts to a structured conversation with them about these futures? If we could do this, we might shape a dialogue that allowed them more ownership of the lives they might lead and the […]

Teach Like A Pirate #FabEduBooks⤴

from @ Pedagoo.org

My favourite edubook is Teach Like A Pirate by Dave Burgess. I found this book on Twitter. I’d seen lots of tweets with #TLAP after them, so tapped on #TLAP and there it was – everyone talking about this book called Teach Like A Pirate. I ordered a copy, read it cover to cover and was […]

The Elephant in the Classroom #FabEduBooks⤴

My favourite edubook is The Elephant in the Classroom by Jo Boaler. In the book Boaler talks about the mathematical progress of thousands of students from the UK and USA whom she followed over a number of years from school into their adult life. She also gives some great suggestions of ways in which maths […]

Non-Violent Communication: a Language of Life #FabEduBooks⤴

from @ Pedagoo.org

My favourite edubook is Non-Violent Communication: a Language of Life by Marshall Rosenberg Well to be honest I have at least a dozen favourite edubooks, but this book is the one from which I have learned the most important lesson as a teacher: that all communication is an expression of an unmet need and that life […]

A Book that Changed my Teacher Journey #FabEduBooks⤴

from @ Pedagoo.org

My favourite book that has ‘disrupted my thinking’ and changed the direction of travel as a teacher is ‘Becoming a Critically Reflective Teacher’, Brookfield, (1995).You know when a book arrives through the post and you unpack it and flick through it; well, I had read the first two chapters before I knew it and was […]

Classrooms as Learning Communities – a guide to my professional journey #FabEduBooks⤴

from @ Pedagoo.org

My favourite edubook is Classrooms as Learning Communities: What’s In It For Schools? by Chris Watkins. Way back in the early days of Curriculum for Excellence, when Building the Curriculum 3 was published in particular, I began working on trying to develop teaching approaches which involved my students to a much greater extent in the […]

The Book Whisperer – Scream it from the Rooftops #FabEduBooks⤴

from @ Pedagoo.org

Being an English teacher, I still look and cringe at my first, probably, five years of teaching. Everything that had got me to where I was, everything which I had experienced up until that point and had supported me through the years of working in terrible jobs – the wilderness years, as I like to […]
