  • Blog Post: Visiting our Innovative Schools in Scotland

    Stuart and I haven’t had a moment to relax since our very successful Innovative Teachers Forum last week.

  • Blog Post: Raise your hand if you're innovative

    I think I enjoyed last Friday's Innovative Teachers event at Microsoft just a much as Stuart did. The teachers we meet are always inspiring, and this group of 12 was quite special. Like Stuart and the teachers, I was also inspired by Guy Shearer's keynote. I've borrowed the title of Guy's talk in...

  • Blog Post: Am I socially network inept or just ‘Billy No Mates’?

    There are certain social protocols that we naturally adopt, such as body language, eye contact, personal space and appropriate conversation. I am the shy and retiring type and I think I am only now getting comfortable in a wide variety of social situations. But I think I am again experiencing that adolescent...
  • Blog Post: BETT Links

    One of the best things about my job is having an American Boss. It is my unofficial role to educate Kristen in the lesser known nuances of UK culture, especially Wales! So it was with some surprise that she asked me to blog about ‘Bet Lynch’ . Had she been watching the Corrie Omnibus over Xmas and wanted...

    This week, Stuart and I were up in Knowsley, outside of Liverpool, hosting the UK's first "Innovative Schools" conference. What does this mean, exactly?

  • Blog Post: Hong Kong's Innovative Schools

    Stuart and I split up on Tuesday; he joined the teachers on educational excursions all over Hong Kong that I'm sure he'll explain, and I sat in meetings in a hotel ballroom for most of the day. (Not that I'm bitter. Or jealous. Hotel ballrooms are lovely.) I did have one opportunity to leave the hotel...
