When we think of mobile phones in the classroom, it tends to be a forbidden subject as teachers found them as a distraction against education. Parents and teachers would do anything to prevent the use of smartphones in the classroom.
Now we’re seeing a different outlook on the benefits of mobile phones in the classroom. In particular, mobile… Continue

It is very difficult to give weight to anything these days except for the conditions that we are now living and dying under, especially as a New Yorker. Time does not stand still however, so we need to assess where we are in order to adjust and move forward. If this pandemic has taught me anything, this would be my lesson learned.
When it comes to the American education system, I have experienced it in many ways and on many levels. I have been a student, a teacher,… Continue

With the cloud of the Corona Virus hanging over us and growing by the hour, it is difficult to see any silver lining. Health and safety are our greatest concerns. The stakes are high and the consequences may be fatal to too many. Anything I discuss here should

With the rapid spread of the Corona Virus, there has been a clarion call for schools to close and immediately shift to online learning in the interest of health and safety. With all that has been written and talked about in regard to “online learning” over the last decade, the perception is that now is a great time to put tech to work and implement this modern methodology to address our current situation and limit face-to-face exposure in order to self-quarantine a huge portion of our… Continue

So you’ve got a looming deadline, you don’t know if you understand the material well enough and the professor has announced that you need at least a ‘B’ to pass the class. What do you do? Do you have the time to do the work? What if you spend the next 48 hours hyped up on coffee doing the assignment and it still isn’t good enough? It would absolutely destroy you if you had to take the course again. University is already expensive enough without having to re-do classes.

As adults we generally learn about things that we need to learn about. Of course we also have an opportunity to learn about things we would like to learn about. We do not have anyone assigning us projects, or books or exams for which to prepare. The exception to…

There are many unique kinds of games being invented daily. In order to comprehend how video games fit into a favorite cultural environment, we have to first distinguish that which we mean by popular culture. They could be a good way to motivate kids.

I recently attended the annual conference held by NYSCATE, the New York State ISTE affiliate organization.

As with all education conferences it is easy to… Continue

For some time now I have believed very strongly that the profession should help to regulate and support itself.
On Friday Dame Alison Peacock from the Chartered College, Sir Kevan Collins from EEF and I presented to 50+ school leaders in the North West on a vision for more autonomy for schools and more self regulation.
I covered the outcome of the NAHT Accountability Commission which talks about school leaders stepping up and taking responsibility for themselves and their peers… Continue

In a recent #Edchat discussion we discussed whether or not schools should encourage teachers to use technology to reach out in communication with parents. I really did not think this would still be a relevant discussion in light of how we have all grown dependent on technology for communication, but evidently there are…

Being a teacher requires a lot of time and efforts. One has to prepare himself for the lessons, plan work, revise the students’ paperwork, and perform many other tasks. Due to this active lifestyle, they do not have an opportunity to manage their finances. And here the problems start progressing.…

Horror show of a budget for schools!
I genuinely believe in the democratic processes we have in this country but the Chancellor’s failure to respond to lobbying from parents and school leaders whilst clearly responding to the lobbying of his peer party MP’s makes you wonder how fair the system is.
This was clearly a budget primed to prepare the road for a journey to the next general election. Stay with me whilst I extend the road metaphor although I know you probably know what… Continue

I think all educators can agree that we want our students to become better self-regulated learners. However, this is a daunting task for teachers. I've spent a great deal of time trying to teach my grade 6 students various self-regulation skills such as planning, goal-setting, self-monitoring, time management, self-control, and reflection, but in past years it hasn't quite "taken" the way I hoped it would. I talk about how important this skills are until I'm blue in the face and I usually… Continue

School boards and individual teachers are seeking out new ways to improve and maintain their own learning process. Teachers with a passion for their career are routinely discovering innovative ways to brush up on skills, and to develop new methods for delivering information. Teachers know that children have a huge capacity for retaining knowledge, and that every child has their own unique way of grasping the information delivered in the classroom. A childhood educator is an expert in… Continue
