Do one thing this week
This weeks idea is Numeracy
I challenge each teacher in school to focus on something they will be delivering and to see if there is any numeracy involved. This could be at any level, even simple addition of numbers. Make this really implicit, that learning about maths is essential for students in all areas. Maths is part of lots of everyday practice, maybe we need to point it out a little more to students outside the classroom.
Today I observed Mr Mailey using numeracy in his BTEC session looking at assessing an official in sport. He used data to explain how you can gather information and then use it to give feedback. Simple use of percentages of things an official did or did not do.
iPads and teaching
IPads at CAB
It is too easy to just focus on the outcomes in education and in doing this we completely miss the journey. So many teachers are doing great things in their classroom to really get students being creative and to think about how they are learning. The iPad is a tool to really enhance this process.
Over the coming months I will focus on specific apps or ways to develop use of devices in the classroom and how it can impact on student learning, even to the point of them wanting to do work at home!!!!!
