Well actually, there’s a lot you can do. It’s always a good idea to follow up to increase your chances of being hired. Even if you think you did really well (or really bad) in the interview, it doesn’t harm in following up. How to follow up? Stay tune! For more information, visit www.TheBusyEducator.com

Hearing is Seeing - improve descriptive writing with film

Hearing is Seeing - improve descriptive writing with film

Into Film’s series of Industry Visits, which brings film industry talent into schools across the UK, saw Veronika Hyks, Head of Audio Description at BTI Studios, visiting young people at Lent Rise Primary School in Slough. Audio description (AD) is the verbal description of film images to support the experience of visually impaired audiences. Creating AD narratives provides a wonderful opportunity for descriptive writing in the classroom or as part of an Into Film Club. Using literacy techniques during a practical workshop, Veronika encouraged the children at Lent Primary to encourage them to write their own descriptions, using a clip from Disney’s Frozen. Keeping their eyes closed, the children were asked to listen to the dialogue and sounds used in the clip, and imagined what the experience might be like to someone who is visually impaired. They then had a go at writing their own audio descriptions, using descriptive words and thinking about how tense could be used. Veronika tasked the children with reading their own descriptions out loud alongside the clip, helping them to think about rhythm and pace, and using the sounds and dialogue to bring the clip to life. Watch the video above to see how they got on, and to hear Veronika discuss audio-description in her own words.

Conservation Careers

Conservation Careers

During this lesson, students investigate the role of knowledge of our environment in jobs both now and in the future. Students begin by exploring the need for green jobs (why we need people to have green jobs) and what some current green jobs might be. Students are then asked to imagine some green jobs of the future, what the job descriptions of these jobs would be and how these jobs would help to protect, conserve and care for our environment. This lesson is designed to be taught outside. By spending time outdoors and connecting to nature, students are more likely to care for and conserve nature as adults.

Preparing for the Careers of the Future

Preparing for the Careers of the Future

By 2025 it is estimated that over 5 million jobs in the UK will be lost to automation and robots. This means that the job market that current school students will be joining will be vastly different from the one we know today. The skills required to compete and thrive in this world will be those that robots and computers find difficult to copy. Soft-skills, like creativity, communication and working with others will become vital for job seekers of the future. Interactive resource in prezi. Contains video and infographic content. Suitable for individuals, groups and parents. Aimed at KS3, KS4 and KS5

Still Looking For A Teaching Job? Follow This Checklist

Still Looking For A Teaching Job? Follow This Checklist

Teaching is the dream profession of many young graduates. It gives them a chance to be heard and share their knowledge with others. It’s a great profession for those who have leadership skills and want to be social. If you have applied to a number of teaching positions and still haven’t become successful, here’s a checklist for you: Consider moving Instead of limiting your job search to your neighboring schools and colleges, send the applications to big schools even if they are far away. If you get selected, you can always move to another city. After all, a job at a premiere college or school will be a great move for your career. Get your paperwork ready Make sure you have your resume, cover letter, and other documents ready. Proofread your resume several times to make sure it does not have any mistakes. Be available on social networks Your presence on social media networks like LinkedIn can help you build connections. If you are connected to administrators from colleges and schools, there are chances that they will prefer you over others when it’s time to hire. Attend job fairs Attend the job fairs held at your alma mater along with those at the neighboring colleges and universities. You have better chances of being selected at your alma mater than the others. Prepare for the interview There are some questions that are asked frequently. For example, “what can you bring to this school” and “how do you plan to influence the students”. Come up with witty and professional answers for these questions. Share vignettes Be open during the interview and share some positive vignettes about your previous experiences. These could include student achievements, classroom management, and unique teaching methodologies that you follow. Follow-up Sometimes the college or school might take extra time in hiring. If you follow up using emails, there are higher chances of you being hired. When you email them, state again that you would love to work with them. Stay positive It’s a tough economy but teaching positions keep opening every now and then in various schools and colleges. Don’t give up hope and you’ll soon bag a great teaching job. That’s it for now Busy Educator. Until next time, Talk to each other, support each other, take care of each other.’ Marjan
