What Ed Said

This post is credited to one of my favourite - and most inspirational bloggers and teachers - Edna Sackson.

As always, I want to know what YOU think.  We'll be checking out one of her posts - 10 Ways to Create a Learning Culture.  What else do we need to do in our room to make sure that this is part of our teaching and learning environment?

This is the link:

I can't wait to get your input!

So...What's Thinking???

Here's something to get those amazing brains going.  We sometimes take for granted what we do when we're thinking.  My question is...

What is thinking?  What does it mean to you?  Remember our guiding 'rule' - Any and all ideas count.

Add your thoughts and we'll carry on this discussion next week when we kick off another awesome term!!

We're Baaaacccck! (Well, almost!)

Hey everyone!

Less than a week to go and we'll be back into our teaching and learning.  I hope you've all had a good break and that you're ready to start pushing yourselves and challenging your learning - I know I am!

My challenge this year - well one of them anyway - is to complete the final of my Masters papers.  What challenges would you like to set for yourselves this year - what stars do you want to reach?

Start thinking now and add your thoughts as comments.  Remember, as always, any and all ideas count.

See you soooooon!

How Are Your Holidays Going Team?

Hey everyone!

I hope you're all having a good break.  Only a few weeks to go until we're back into learning mode.

Question:  Just because we're not at school at the moment, does it mean you're not learning????

We've had lots of discussions around this haven't we?  What are your thoughts?

You know my thoughts on this and I'd love other people to join in the discussion too.  What is the power of the learning we do ALL the time - why do we need to value learning that happens every moment of our lives?

It's about getting rid of the classroom walls / flattening the classroom - remember THAT discussion??

Remember, any and all ideas count in our debates and discussions.

See you soon...
