  • Blog Post: Blogs for Teachers – my favourites

    I must admit that as a teacher, I never had time to read any blogs -- it was often too much just to read the Times Educational Supplement. But now I think that if and when I return to the classroom, blogs will be the mainstay of how I will gather information to inform and develop my teaching. Over the...
  • Blog Post: The 6th Annual UK Innovative Teachers Forum

    Yesterday, Stuart and I and our teammates from Microsoft gathered with our colleagues from SSAT, Shireland Learning to welcome over 75 educators to Birmingham for our Innovative Teachers Forum.

Well, with another great application developed by Microsoft Research (the other being AutoCollage – available for free on the Innovative Teachers Network ) it could be from any one of your future lessons! As a primary school teacher, I had to...
  • Blog Post: A random act of genius.

    Planning is probably the most disliked word in the teaching profession (apart from inspection , that is). From my experience it dominates your time as a teacher. You have a variety of planning to undertake: lesson, weekly, short, medium, long and individual, to name just a few. You have endless planning...
  • Blog Post: Reflecting on Vienna

    From our recent posts you will know that last week we attended the European Innovative Teachers Forum in Vienna. I thought I would spend a little time reflecting on what was a great event.
