Wee Pedagoo⤴

from @ Pedagoo.org

Good things come in small packages. Talking about teaching and learning is a magical thing. Get a bunch of teachers together and they spark off one another like pieces of flint. Inspiring, creative, curious conversations happen that lead to practice-changing ‘I-never-thought-of-it-like-that-before’ moments. This much we know. We also know teachers are busy. Crazy busy. So how […]

The plays and special assemblies are all wonderful […]

from @ Pedagoo.org

I was trying to unpick some of the things I do in my practice, things I believe make a difference, and talking with a non-teacher friend, I realised that as a profession we tend to like a nice new shiny concept, approach, package, programme or resource.
