I have been keeping a blog again for almost a year. I am mainly doing this to keep my own staff in touch with my movements and musings. I was surprised at the weekend to hear that some of my friends from the non educational world have been looking in on this too. I think that can only be good - too many have an opinion but no knowledge of what actually goes on inside the education system. I think this is education's loss - it's not really rocket science but we do bury our aims and objectives in so much jargon that real world people - even parents - are instantly switched off. Guess the problem is that we can't agree what education is really all about ;-)
I was touched too in last week or so to be listed here in such illustrious company. It looks like those on the inside appreciate some of this babble too.
I was sorry not to be able to make Teachmeet in Perth but good to see that it was such a
success and some great sessions you can pick up on the Wiki.
If you google Teachmeet Northern Edition you will find some great stuff.
Good to see too that Scotedublogs
is growing its appeal. The fact that this community is growing and growing can only be good for education and for the forging of links beyond the school gates – which is what I think learning is all about.
I have to make a special mention of this posting on Don Ledingham's Blog
great to see a new Director of Education with such a clear and innovative vision prepared to make it public.
I hope in all these ways we are widening and deepening the education debate in a way that changes things where it matters, for the learners.
