Posters for Your Classroom: little whispers(tm) "Hopes and Dreams"

Posters for Your Classroom: little whispers(tm) "Hopes and Dreams"

little whispers™ is a new concept from Silvestris Educational Publications—5” x 7” mini “desktop posters” that you print yourself. They can be framed, attached to a backing, used as bookmarks, or slipped under binder covers. Some teachers have creatively used them as covers for small books. Since you print them yourself, you can make as many copies as you need, on whatever type of stock your printer can handle. They look particularly attractive when printed on card stock and framed. All little whispers™ desktop posters are themed in concept, content, and design. They are meant for us teachers rather than our students. They convey messages that are both primary and elementary to all good teaching. Thus, they are set in a font that recalls the simple printing seen on any elementary chalk or whiteboard. The posters in the “hopes and dreams” series have no capital letters or end punctuation, to remind us that so much has happened before this moment in our students’ lives, and so much more is yet to come. They speak of those things that are important to us as teachers, yet tend to be the very things we forget in the daily “business” of the classroom. We all know the importance of hope, understanding, praise, encouragement, and dreams. But it is often difficult to go about the daily business of the classroom while keeping these concepts in the forefront of our thinking. That tiny gap is where little whispers™ mini posters enter the picture. They are designed to remind us of the most important things in our teaching—the things that can’t be tested or quantified, but which pervade every aspect of every interaction between us and our students. These are not things that we put in our plan books. Yet, does any one of us have the right to plan even one lesson if we lose sight of them? little whispers™ mini posters are designed to give us gentle, quiet reminders throughout the day. They will amplify our own voices in calling us back to our origins as teachers. Print them out and place them: • in frames on your desk • between pages of your books • in the closet where you keep your coat • under transparent binder covers • in your plan book and roll book • next to your computer monitor • in your file drawers • anywhere you can see them as you go through your day

How SMSC, PSHE & RSE help learners manage what's important in life

How SMSC, PSHE & RSE help learners manage what's important in life

As human beings, what is of value to us strongly influences our priorities, thinking, choices and actions - although currently many of us are unaware of just how powerful these driving forces are. However matters, such as the state and importance of young people’s mental and physical health and our stewardship of the environment, are changing our understanding of how we are constantly being ‘values led’ and altering our behaviour patterns so as to be more in alignment with what is important to us in life . When underlying VALUES are deliberately identified during the discussions and debates about topics, issues and concerns raised in SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development) and fundamental British Values sessions , PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic education) lessons and RSE (Relationships and Sex Education) slots, young citizens begin to appreciate the significance of how values provide standards, principles and signposts that guide decisions and actions. This understanding then enables them to choose and use values to positively impact all aspects of their own day-to-day lives. In doing so, they become progressively better able to gain essential intellectual, emotional and social skills that allow them to flourish, make good choices, maximise their potential and lead fulfilling lives throughout their school careers and on into their adult lives. See ‘How does VALUES LITERACY enhance young people’s LIFE PROFICIENCY?’ -

Coding, Collaboration, Communication and Curriculum in Finland

Coding, Collaboration, Communication and Curriculum in Finland

Computer science nurtures problem-solving skills, logic and creativity. The world is increasingly run by software and we need more diversity among those people who are building it. Not all students will be software developers or writers, doctors or translators, but we are already surrounded by technology and even more so in the future. The main point is to provide a basic understanding of society, living environment and fields of science and thus provide equal opportunities for all the learners. Understanding how computers work and how to use them well, gives children skills and knowledge to succeed in global competition and life generally. Year 3 pupils were not only taught the basics of coding, but they were taught to teach other classes the magic of coding. They have taught around 200 other children and teachers in Finland and India (via video) the Magic of Coding. You can learn more about the Coding Ambassadors here or email for an online course including videos and lesson plan for collaborative coding lessons.

#1Lib1Ref - How to give Wikipedia a present for its birthday!

#1Lib1Ref - How to give Wikipedia a present for its birthday!

Wikipedia celebrates its 17th birthday on January 15th 2018. To mark the occasion, the Wikimedia Library is calling on educators, librarians and anyone who ever uses Wikipedia all around the world to add one reference to Wikipedia to backup a fact that needs it (marked with 'Citation Needed') between Jan 15th and Feb 3rd 2018. Because any citation to a reliable source is a benefit to Wikipedia readers worldwide. And it only takes a few minutes to share open knowledge. This video demonstrates where to find out about #1lib1ref, how to use the Citation Hunt tool to identify a random snippet on Wikipedia that needs a citation... and how to go about finding & adding a reliable source in order to change that citation needed to citation added! For more information on the #1lib1ref campaign please visit: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/The_Wikipedia_Library/1Lib1Ref

Compromise (The Book)

It's the little foxes that spoil the vine. Often we don't see it coming but it does. It's the small stuff that gets you. Over the last 40 years education has been the frog and some of the ideas, and philosophies that we have been sold have been the pot of water. Well the water is boiling now and has been for the past 40 years, slowly. We have compromised values and have gone down the path of mediocrity. Read on. This is a great partner to the audio podcast sold in my shop.
