Growing up by North Commons Park on Minneapolis’ North Side, he has heard gunshots echo across his neighborhood, especially during humid, summer days. He faces the after­effects of it, too, with police officers stopping him once or twice a week just for walking around the area, he said.

There is a need for us to support our learners consistently to develop and use a wide range of digital skills. Futuredocs.

Independent learning and spaced learning. For the 2016/17 academic year I was determined that I would use a more flipped learning and independent learning style with my A Level students, and start introducing it with my GCSE classes as well.

Independent learning and spaced learning

I wanted to do this as I felt that by spoon-feeding the students the information I was doing them a disservice and, rather than educating them, I was just schooling them for the exam. I also selfishly, wanted to try and create a better work/home balance and be more organised in my planning. So I started to using a new Lecture-Seminar system with the A level classes.

To do this I gave the students a termly outline of what we will be covering each week. Sociology resources. Coursera. Home.

Look down the ladder to see how former teachers can play a pivotal role in business development in different industrial sectors. The education system would fall over without many hours of teacher overtime. How long until this goodwill is withdrawn? There is no doubt that the vast majority of teachers do far more work than they are either contracted or paid to do.

Recent BBC research showed that the average primary class teacher, if there is such a thing, worked 59 hours per week. If we consider that only 20 hours of this time is actually in front of a class, then it means a phenomenal amount of time is spent on preparation or marking or taking on the many additional responsibilities a class teacher now has. These extra hours teachers work are interesting when our unions expect a 32.5 to 35-hour week. The truth therefore is that the education system is surviving only because of the additional work all our teachers do – otherwise known as teacher "goodwill". This goodwill means teachers teachers attend far too many meetings, both before and after school. Useful this "goodwill", eh? The reality, however, is that nearly 60 hours per teacher per week has become a norm. For government, schools, leaders and parents this is now the norm.
