Found myself listening to this. A younger me. Very enthusiastic. Tripping over words to get ideas out. And John Johnston is a brilliant host. Funny and charmingly left of centre. EDUtalk was brilliant. I miss it. @ewanmcintosh and @MrSMathsWizard all get a mention. https://twitter.com/johnjohnston/status/736100282396868609
Keeping this one for the “charming” Going to have a re-listen.
continuing to support the plugin through 2022 is the right call for the project as well as the community
Given that we have just enabled blocks on Glow Blogs I am glad classic will continue to be supported. I am still on classic here too.
A batch of newspaper blackout poems.
Nice examples of blackout poetry from the master. I must remember to get my class to do some this session.
An account of a poetry lesson, with some thoughts on efficiency, on how we treat texts and on knowledge.
efficiency in teaching is a problematic idea. Of course time and energy shouldn’t be evaporated away by gimmickry or activity with no purpose. But an element of theatre, an injection of emotion, or a playful unwrapping of ideas can be worth the time if ideas are more memorably imprinted or are more deeply understood.
Interesting post in relation to knowledge, exploratory learning. I’ll be revisiting the blog for the primary section which looks really valuable.
Do you need to edit it once you’re done? No, you don’t. You need good editing to go from 200 listeners to 2,000 listeners. You don’t have 200 listeners yet. You don’t even have one, because you haven’t recorded an episode yet.

It’s been 150 years since a lack of coordination among new Australian states created the “middle-gauge muddle”: a nation whose railroad tracks are laid at different widths depending on which part of the country you’re in. In 150 years, no one has figured out how to make a rail car that can change its wheelbase midway through its journey and after hundreds of attempts, Australia is giving up on interoperable rolling stock. Instead, they’re tearing up thousands of kilometers’ worth of rail and putting down new ones.
Enjoyable read. One of the things I love about blogging is rss which provides all sorts of interoperability. Micro.blog is a marvellous example.
Don't think there's been a bigger, more positive influence on effective CPD and improvement in Scottish Education in the last decade than @kennypieper. From Teach Meets to Pedagoo to @researchEDScot1. Audiences packed with world class educators. What a loss!
