Crusoe College is the sixth school that I have been employed at as a teacher. Every school is different, with its own strengths and weaknesses, characteristics and foibles. It’s been just under three weeks, but I can’t help being excited at what is possible.The start, as it has always been for me, is getting students to use a blog as a replacement, or addition to, their exercise book as a record of their learning. I have written many posts about the benefits of doing so; one of the most…See More

Namaste!

I'm back!India is an incredible place to travel to. Several years ago, my wife and I spent a month travelling through the well-beaten path of Delhi, Agra and Rajasthan. The Mughal architecture is astounding, the sheer rhythm of life on the streets is almost overwhelming, and the food is, quite simply, glorious. While it's not an easy place to travel, it is certainly one of the most memorable places you could ever visit.So it was with considerable excitement that we welcomed St Mark's School in…See More

Six Months in a Leaky Boat

I'm embarrassed sometimes by the attitude some Australians have to our neighbours, New Zealand. Frankly, I'm a bit of a fan of the kiwis. They've given the world plenty, but for mine, their finest contribution has to be the Finn brothers...One of the more mundane challenges of global learning, as I'm quickly discovering, is the lack of coordination in holidays between the northern and southern hemispheres. With most of the Writers' Clubs' schools located on the other side of the equator,…See More

Find and Be Found

I'm often asked what the point of the Writers' Club is if you are already blogging. Surely having a global audience is not exactly revolutionary - all you need to do is to start a blog, and theoretically, you have a global audience, right?Well, yes and no. The big problem I have found with blogging in the classroom is (a) finding the blogs of others, and (b) having your blog found by others. The result is your…See More

"This is a good piece about humanising the class. however, I am still new to the use of classroom 2.0 tools. How can I learn how to make blogs and add clips to text. Ruth"

Humanising the classroom

I was preparing a presentation for differentiating mathematics using technology recently, and ended up editing a TED talk by Salman Khan. What struck me was Khan's idea that technology can humanise the classroom - which, as Khan acknowledges, is in some ways counterintuitive. Indeed, when I talk to teachers about technology in the classroom, they have visions of a very inhuman scenario, where students have their eyes glued to the screens, interacting with noone. I'd argue that many things that…See More

Bahasa Bahasa

Since learning to speak a language myself, I've valued the role of languages in schools. One of the most life-changing periods of my life was when I went to live in the city of Perugia as a part of my PhD studies in 2000-2001. Immersed in Italian language, I went from knowing a few words to becoming close to fluent in three months. It was an astonishing transformation, one that has…See More
