Andrea Thompson replied to Colin Chaplin's discussion Is a more 'successful' artist a better arts teacher?
"Yeah I found this a good point, as you don't always want to show your vulnerable side to someone who's done well, maybe afraid to explore and experiment incase you might not do as well as you want to, just sticking to your comfort zones…"

"Hi Andrea, Thank you for your comment. There will always be a place for creative subjects in this and the next generation and agree that they should be embraced in equal quantities. T x"

Andrea Thompson replied to Gina Allen's discussion Have the Germans got a point??
"I agree with Aimee about giving students the choice between earlier and later starts, as some can function better later during the day than earlier. I do feel a lot of things are aimed at people who prefer to get up earlier and then go to bed…"

Andrea Thompson replied to Keeley Knowles's discussion Does technology ultimately promote equality and enhance social relations?
"Yeah it's a good point, they could have been worries about it, and I don't know anyone who doesn't have or hasn't had a telephone, so in time maybe newer means of communication will be embraced so whole heartily as the telephone…"

Andrea Thompson replied to Colin Chaplin's discussion Is a more 'successful' artist a better arts teacher?
"I can see the advantage of having a successful artist as an art teacher, as they can inform students of what it's like being out there in the art world, give them real world knowledge. Also students may be more engaged as if seeing the teacher…"

Andrea Thompson replied to Andrea Thompson's discussion Should we stop teaching creative subjects at secondary schools?
"I love that last line Tracy "from learning inspires passion, passion inspires creation, creation inspires further learning" that should be the mantra for every place of education. The creative subjects are a way of communicating so I do…"

Andrea Thompson replied to Keeley Knowles's discussion Does technology ultimately promote equality and enhance social relations?
"I do think technology can give us 'the easy way out' at times when communicating with people, as it may seem less intimating to write an email to someone than to pick up the phone. I do think sometimes it can be an age thing, when I was a…"

Andrea Thompson replied to Laura Withers's discussion Andragogy Vs Pedagogy - Promoting Inclusive Learning
"I'm involving the students who lean more to andragogy learning, in teaching their peers. If a student asks a question I throw it open it the others to answer and don't answer it myself straight away when we're in a discussion. If…"

Tracy brookes replied to Andrea Thompson's discussion Should we stop teaching creative subjects at secondary schools?
"Of course we should teach it!! That's why there is a demand for it, we are all creative in many different ways, and as a nation do we not have some of the most iconic fashion houses, designers or artists in this country?? For many learners…"

Keeley Knowles replied to Andrea Thompson's discussion Should we stop teaching creative subjects at secondary schools?
"Teaching is creative. Teachers are creative. I am sure there must be so many professionals outraged by this.  As for the revolution, I think about this a lot. I wish I knew the answer. But maybe a start would be for disgruntled…"

Andrea Thompson replied to Andrea Thompson's discussion Should we stop teaching creative subjects at secondary schools?
"I agree it's up to all of us to actively encourage creativity within education and following that through to the work place, developing and giving it the freedom it needs, not marginalising and devaluing its worth. When we have an abundance of…"

Andrea Thompson replied to Andrea Thompson's discussion Are Summative Assessments Inclusive?
