20 Tips for a New Trainee Teacher! by @trainingtoteach

Posted: February 21, 2017, 7:27 am


  • Now that I am venturing into my second year as a trainee teacher (yay me!), I’ve learnt a lot, I’ve made a lot of mistakes, made friends, made enemies, delivered some brilliant lessons and some so bad, I’ve wondered if maybe, just maybe I’d be better off sitting in the class, rather than teaching it. - Martin Burrett

Are girls really better at reading than boys – or are the tests painting a false picture?

Posted: February 20, 2017, 7:05 pm


  • In reading tests at school, girls tend to be ahead of boys, in all age groups and in all countries. But in young adults, there is suddenly no longer any difference between men’s and women’s reading skills. Why is that? Could the answer be in the way the tests are designed? - Martin Burrett

Developed using Google’s Magenta project, the algorithm uses a neural network to learn how to respond through to the key strokes. Simply use a keyboard, use your computer keys, or even plug in a MIDI keyboard. A.I. Duet is built by Yotam Mann with friends on the Magenta and Creative Lab teams at Google. - Martin Burrett

Teaching Dispositions for Learning — The Learner's Way

Posted: February 19, 2017, 8:11 am


  • Increasingly we aim to teach dispositions but some care in the use of the term is required as it is easily oversimplified. While teaching for dispositions is encouraged it will have little effect if it means doing little other than engaging with the terminology. If we are to encourage the expansion of the desired dispositions, we must be sure to adequately unpack them and understand the implications in store for our culture of learning.  - Nigel Coutts

Pupils Writing Memoir : A Great Literacy Topic by @Lit4Pleasure

Posted: February 18, 2017, 6:27 pm


  • "As you may have read, this half term we focused on the teaching of memoir.

    In our first week we discussed the genre using our genre-booklets and this created a buzz for the rest of the project. Focusing on the genre and why people write memoir allowed the generating of ideas to happen fairly quickly." - Martin Burrett
