  • Blog Post: Mouse Mischief for PowerPoint released

    Last month I wrote a blog post about Mouse Mischief , unfortunately it appeared on the day they removed the beta version, Whoops! But, I am really pleased to announce that the full version is now available to download for free at www.microsoft.com/mousemischief If you haven’t read my last post and...
  • Blog Post: How much do you trust your students?

    From what I’ve seen visiting schools in this country, I’d say on the whole…not much. (Don’t feel bad; teachers and schools in the US trust students a lot less.) The level trust we have for students and pupils is always made obvious when I visit other countries. Here are two examples. Denmark :...
  • Blog Post: Why did the chickenman cross the road?

    To collect another award of course….. Regular readers of our blog will know all about the Chickenman , aka Dan Roberts . He is one of our most proactive Innovative Teachers and award winners. But he's not just all feathers and eggs; his work is highly motivating for his students bringing Dan a number...
  • Blog Post: Harri, just the boy next door

    Harri is 9 years old and spends most of his time playing football. I know this from the number of times he collects his ball from my garden. He has a digital world, but it is not what you would perhaps expect. He doesn’t use a laptop; the laptop in his family is his sister’s and it's used for ‘ talking...
  • 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: A Secret confession

    Alone in the office, with the lights low, I often succumb to a guilty pleasure! (It's not what you think!) I spend time looking at the Office Labs site. Now before you make any snap judgements, the Office Labs are not the ‘Geek-fest’ you might imagine. After all in her last post, Kristen describes the...
  • Blog Post: Award Winning Innovative Teachers - Chris Henderson

    Chris Henderson is the final teacher accompanying us to Vienna later this month for the European Innovative Teachers Forum. Chris is from Saltash.net Community School , which you've heard us talk about many, many times at this point. Dan Roberts (aka, the 6-foot chicken), our award winner in Hong Kong...
  • Blog Post: Award Winning Innovative Teacher – James Kent

    James’ involvement with the Innovative Teachers Network is fairly recent. He joined a local network created by Alessio Bernardelli , a former Innovative Teachers Award winner himself. The goal of the network is to establish the Innovative Teachers community throughout comprehensive schools in Torfaen...
  • 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: Personalising learning - Enquiring Minds

    Hardly a day goes by anymore when I don't hear or read something about personalising learning or putting pupils at the centre of their learning. If I had a Euro for every person who uses these buzzwords without having a clue as to what they mean, I'd be a wealthy lady (notice that I'm asking for Euros...
