Education: The Good the Bad and the Ugly

After inspiration from Seth Godins’ “Stop Stealing Dreams” and Sir Ken Robinson’s “How to escape education’s Death Valley” I’ve created my own Education Manifesto reflecting on:

  • The Purpose of Education
  • The Role of the Teacher
  • Learning Environments
  • What educators need to STOP doing
  • What educators need to START doing
  • What educational leaders need to do about it!

My reflections on what is right, and wrong with education and what educational leaders need to do about it.

Blog as Professional Portfolio

I am attending a workshop with George Couros discussing the National Professional Standards for Teachers and using a Blog as a showcase of evidence against the standards. In this blog I will be exploring the following seven standards:

  1. Know Your Students
  2. Know the Content
  3. Plan Teaching and Learning
  4. Safe and Supportive Learning
  5. Assess, Feedback and Report
  6. Professional Learning
  7. Engage Professionally

Watch this short video about the National Professional Standards for teachers.
