  • Blog Post: The Geography collective – a unique teacher network.

    I am always amazed at the various professional networks that teachers belong to.

  • Blog Post: BETT 2010 - a New Years resolution you can keep

    One of my new Year’s resolution is to get fit again; I suspect many of you have a similar resolution. Well, it's not going to be workout videos for me. No, I’m going to endure the annual marathon that is the 2010 BETT show. If last year's event is anything to go by, I should lose loads of weight, or...

  • Blog Post: 100 posts – A review of the Innovative Teachers Network blog

  • Blog Post: Resources for Teachers by Teachers – Summer Camp

    Anybody that has taught knows that certain well-known myths are just not true. For example, there is dinosaur living in a lake in Scotland (actually, I believe this one is true), woman are worse drivers than men and teachers do not work in August. Today I can dispel at least one of these myths: teachers...

  • Blog Post: Create your own E-Learning

    Many secondary schools I visit are busy creating comprehensive libraries of content to support their students' learning. This content is often shared across a learning platform of some kind. It’s not really my field of expertise, being a primary school teacher, so I admit that am not fully aware of the...

    Have you seen those yoghurts that contain an unpronounceable micro-organism that has a beneficial effect on the well being of your digestive system? Stay with me here and you will see where this is going. A recent experience -- not with yoghurt I hasten to add, but with digital images -- got me thinking...
