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 :...

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!

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...

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...

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...
