I love how the great ideas here, Let’s Rebuild Utopia, can be used at any level of education. You can bring these tertiary activities into the primary classroom. My class love making wee books and I’ve seen some nice blackout poetry from other classes.
In this episode I talk with Mags Amond, a retired post-primary school teacher and PhD candidate, about her research on a form of informal continuous professional development among teachers all over the world. It is called TEACHMEET where teaching professi...
Very interested to listen to this one. Mags’ phd on TeachMeet covers some interesting territory.

The five minutes needed watch this will not be wasted.
Kilpatrick – Loch Humphrey: A bright sunny day, little breeze & hardly a cloud.
Hawthorn in full flower. A woodpecker flitting.
Cuckoos calling & couple seen in the distance. Plenty of butterflies.
Trees in leaf, just the ash lagging. Bracken & ferns unfurling.
We were lucky to be there on probably the first dry day in a month. In the Golden Hour as the sun was starting to set, the fresh new leaves on the trees shone like stained glass in a cathedral window. The place shimmered with bird song, butterflies and wild flowers.
What a marvellous post.
We has a nice gentle stroll from Dawsholm up the River Kelvin to the vet school and Maryhill Road.
Lovely sunny day, it really feels like summer now. Plenty of butterflies out, orange tips and whites.
Bluebells in the woods along with garlic mustard and wild garlic. Everything green and lush. A few trout rising on the river. Watched a goosander fishing, and saw a heron sunning itself.
Halooooo yourself, queued up for the commute.
The tech giant has expressed an ambition to transform education with artificial intelligence, raising fresh ethical questions.

A bit of outdoor learning in the woods near school today. Looking at trees. Pupil identified birch correctly, told me this was due to birch in Minecraft having same pattern on trunk.
