Study links relationship between teacher burnout and student motivation

Posted: November 22, 2017, 12:14 am


  • "Teacher burnout is regarded as a serious problem in school settings. To date, studies on teachers’ stress and burnout have largely centred on teachers’ own characteristics, socialisation, and behaviours, but few have explored the connection between teachers’ burnout and students’ motivation via their own perceptions of teachers’ behaviour and emotional well-being." - Martin Burrett

Teens are growing up more slowly today than they did in past decades

Posted: November 22, 2017, 12:12 am


  • "Many people believe that teenagers today grow up faster than they used to, while others argue that today’s youth are growing up more slowly, perhaps due to overprotection by their parents. A new study explored this issue by examining how often teens in recent years (compared to teens in previous decades) engaged in adult activities such as drinking alcohol, working, driving, or having sex. The study found that today’s adolescents are less likely than their predecessors to take part in activities typically undertaken by adults." - Martin Burrett

Resources | Project Based Learning | BIE

Posted: November 21, 2017, 7:50 pm


  • We have assembled a wide array of PBL-related resources created by BIE and collected from fellow PBL travelers. The resources are organized into three broad categories: things to read, to watch, or to interact with.

    If you would like to take a Do-It-Yourself (DIY) approach to learning about PBL, then check out the recommend resources for teachers, coaches, principals, and district leaders. The featured resources have a note on "How Can You Use It?" We also suggest starting your DIY experience by purchasing one of BIE's books. - scottbuchholtz

Anxiety by @sheep2763

Posted: November 20, 2017, 9:15 pm


  • "These children are not trying to be awkward, they would love to walk into a classroom, sit down listen, not worry who is near them, not panic when there is a different teacher, not care if someone sees them hang their coat up. Sometimes they can get into the school but not into the classroom. Sometimes they can get out of the house but not through the school gates. Professionals saying, “Just tell them they are going,” is brilliant in theory but, even with an 8-year-old, sometimes impossible in practice." - Martin Burrett

Finding a new paradise for education in times of chaos — The Learner's Way

Posted: November 19, 2017, 8:10 am


  • Through any lens schools are complex places. A melting pot of human, social, political, economic, technological, physical and philosophical tensions. At once the stronghold of our cultural traditions and facilitators of our future wellbeing, schools serve as pillars of stability constructed at the event horizon between our now and our tomorrow. Perhaps at this point in time more than ever is this tension between the role that schools play in indoctrinating our youth into the ways of society at odds with the imperative to prepare them for their futures. - Nigel Coutts

  • Our students have been doing BHP for over a year. We have started with our second cohort this year. The scope and support for practical days is fantastic. The students love it and so do our teachers. When staff and students finish a practical day they are so elated with their work, that nobody leaves on the bell...everyone is still evaluating the day. - mdeschamps67
