About Thinks

Sometimes good thinks happen and sometimes bad thinks happen. Sometimes it's hard to distinguish between the two.

Some thinks need immediate action and some thinks may remain as thinks forever. Thinks can be angry and heated. Thinks can be joyful. Thinks should never be cold.

These thinks are linked to many other wonderful thinks and I like to attribute these.

These thinks do not necessary reflect those thinks of my employer.

Think long, think on.

The Web-Cam as self-monitoring tool

I can't say enough about explicit teaching in relation to attitudes and skills (rather than just knowledge).

This film shows how the webcam enabled this group of children to think about and reflect upon their skills and attitudes as group members. The previous footage was valuable in that it enabled them to reflect because they could see themselves.

This also meant that I was able to see how the group was functioning rather than relying on the output of the task and their reporting back.

Check out the progress they have made after self-evaluating...

  1. What great leadership skills! And fantastic group work. I was so impressed with how everyone had a voice and was invited to contribute, and when they did, were listened to with respect and their ideas included. Nelson, I hadn't thought about the differences between a bike and a skateboard before, and I really liked your thinking on their differences.
