I have found it very interesting to read about other professionals challenges, concerns and curiosities, and it is equally interesting how people respond to discussions. I have found it to be a…Continue

Do you remember your art classrooms at school? The classrooms I used at high school and sixth form in particular were crammed with inspiration: bits of trees hanging from the ceiling; draped fabrics;…Continue

I'm a trainee teacher in fine art and my last two observations have not gone to plan due to circumstances out of my control. I don't normally experience nerves, but these last two observations have…Continue

Samantha Bosi replied to Hannah Garnham's discussion How to Manage a Creative Learning Environment?
"Hannah,  I think that it is very important to have some sort of creativity in the classroom. It gives students the "homely" feel and can help spark up ideas. Most people learn in places they are most comfortable in, and let's…"

Colin Chaplin replied to Hannah Garnham's discussion Strategies to combat nerves
"Hi Hannah, It is just like acting, which has already been said below.  But I also have another way of looking at it.  Just think about how many people know you. And how they know you.  You are a different person to different groups…"

Tracy brookes replied to Hannah Garnham's discussion How to Manage a Creative Learning Environment?
"Hi Hannah, Being an holistic therapist myself, I think I tend to teach with a holistic, whole approach in mind anyway, however it is about that balance of individual learning and group work. And yes thinking outside the box definitely is important…"

Lucy D Roberts replied to Hannah Garnham's discussion Strategies to combat nerves
"Hi Hannah, It's always best to have a plan B,C,D and E, just for your own piece of mind! This is how I try to make sure I can control, if not adapt to any unforseen circumstances. Ultimately you can only control what's within your power,…"

Jacqueline Thomas replied to Hannah Garnham's discussion Strategies to combat nerves
"Hi Hannah, I use a few actorly tips. Some of which can make you appear very odd if someone catches you doing them! My favourite is 1) Find a mirror 2) Smile at yourself, broadly, like you really mean it. 3) You will notice that you start smiling…"

Laura Withers replied to Hannah Garnham's discussion Strategies to combat nerves
"Hi Hannah,   I once heard a teacher say, " teaching is a bit like acting", it seems Amy Cuddy has acknowledged this in the TED talk. Excellent! I shall most definately be trying some of her power poses too.   Laura"

David Antrobus replied to Hannah Garnham's discussion Strategies to combat nerves
"Hi Hannah, I'm going through the same things as you I think, and I'm in no position to sound like I know what I'm talking about. The advice I was given was that every teacher even the ones that look calm and collected are just as…"

Hannah Garnham replied to Christopher Heath's discussion Transfer of learning in sport
"Hi Chris, Firstly, I think when looking at our own course, we value the theory as we can see that it helps significantly when in our placements. However, this may be more effective as we are working in our placement areas each week. Secondly, we…"

Hannah Garnham commented on Samuel Kidby's blog post Extension Tasks- What effect do they have on the less able learners
"Yes I believe this can lower a student's confidence, especially as there is no teacher support during this time. I know its a little off-topic, but I remember one extension given to us at school that was really good- to make a leaflet about…"

Hannah Garnham replied to Roland Baggott's discussion Is there a case for combined Pedagogic and Androgogic teacheing strategies with Post 16
"Yes it is needed in the Arts Dept too. I agree with Theresa that it is about stage not age. Also, some students with learning difficulties and or low self esteem need more pedagogical strategies to start them off on a topic and further encouragement…"

Hannah Garnham replied to David Antrobus's discussion Breaking the mold.
"Hi Dave, I remember choosing my options at high school in year 9 and after sending in my completed slip of decisions I made, a number of us were dragged into a senior management's office where he lectured us about the lack of jobs and…"

Hannah Garnham replied to Hannah Garnham's discussion How to Manage a Creative Learning Environment?
"Yes I agree with you that it does relate back to Maslow's hierarchy of needs and taking a more holistic approach to learning. I do try to look back over my own education and within the art learning environments, to learn from those experiences…"

Christopher Heath replied to Hannah Garnham's discussion How to Manage a Creative Learning Environment?
"Yes the business studies room did motivate us to attend and it was a nice atmosphere to work in.  I agree, using spaces such as the changing rooms, the gym etc etc would be a good alternative, however as they are public areas they would need to…"

Hannah Garnham replied to Hannah Garnham's discussion How to Manage a Creative Learning Environment?
"Hi Melissa, ok have a look over what I have written back to Gina, also I know it may be a big ask but does the college have videos of current and/or past students playing in an orchestra, solo or singing? If a screen is available these videos could…"

Hannah Garnham replied to Hannah Garnham's discussion How to Manage a Creative Learning Environment?
"Yes I like the sound of your GNVQ Business Studies room, wow yes I bet it was so exciting moving the equipment around to suit individuals and purpose. I can see this sticks out to you in your mind- did it motivate you to attend the sessions and…"

Hannah Garnham replied to Hannah Garnham's discussion How to Manage a Creative Learning Environment?
"Yes, plus at the beginning of the year when work hasn't begun yet, the classrooms can seem bare, cold and lacking in inspiration. This is when students need inspiration the most- when it comes to choosing a topic or issue to study. If a teacher…"
