How Social Media Can Help You In Your Teaching Job Hunt

How Social Media Can Help You In Your Teaching Job Hunt

Hello Busy Educator! How Social Media Can Help You in Your Teaching Job Hunt When it comes to job hunting, sometimes prospective teachers don’t use social media very well. And this can become their weak point. Social media is as important in teaching as in any other industry. Your social networking profile is like your informal resume. So, keep only those things on it that you would like to share with everyone. Teachers have to maintain a leading role so it’s best to keep your profile clean and professional. Here are some ways in which social media can help your job hunt. For more information, please visit www.TheBusyEducator.com

It provides an overview of the Construction Industry Scheme and explains who can use it and how tax is paid through the Scheme.

My School Network task sheets plus Networks terms wordsearch - Computer Science / ICT

My School Network task sheets plus Networks terms wordsearch - Computer Science / ICT

This resource is suitable for students learning about networks and their setup (Year 9+). This pack includes the following: My School Network tasks - 6 pages (15 tasks plus example questions for the IT engineer at the school) (PDF) Above editable version My School Network completed sample - 7 pages (PDF) Above editable version Networks terminology wordsearch (54 words) The 15 tasks were created to support Year 10 Computer Science and ICT students in their learning about Networks. The tasks were completed as the students went on a tour, led by the school’s head IT technician / engineer, of the school’s network setup. The tasks can be used / adapted for younger / older students, or depending on their abilities. In our case, the sheets were printed and students completed them by hand using clipboards, but it would also work fine if the students edit the Word document on their devices. The tasks cover the basics including ‘Find out why we have a school network’, ‘Draw what you think the school’s server looks like’, several questions about the school’s backup procedure, questions regarding internet speed, and some sample questions to ask the IT technician / engineer in a Q&A session. The students thoroughly enjoyed the tour, including being wowed by numbers and figures and being allowed to be near the server room, and felt a lot more savvy after understanding what all these devices were in the corridors, walls and ceilings. This definitely made their learning come to life and gave them a clearer understanding of networks and their setup. They also got to know the IT support staff a lot better and expressed great thanks at the end of the tour. It’d be a good idea to meet up with the technicians / engineers in advance to plan out the tour and even prepare them with some of the questions that will be asked.

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.

Training lab monkeys

Training lab monkeys

The laboratory monkeys in this film (macaques) are trained to interact with humans so that they can take part in research experiments. The aim is for them to remain calm during their work.

Breeding laboratory zebrafish

Breeding laboratory zebrafish

Zebrafish are the third most used vertebrate in research. This sub-titled film shows some of the aspects of laboratory zebrafish production and maintenance. Zebrafish embryos, unlike mouse embryos for example, develop outside the mother’s body and are transparent throughout the first few days of life. This provides unparallelled opportunities for researchers to scrutinise the fine details of embryonic vertebrate development without first having to resort to invasive procedures or killing the mother. This advantage is enhanced by the fact zebrafish can produce 200-300 fertilised eggs every week.
