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.

Making our learning accessible

We've been pondering for a while how to share our learning and insights that we have gained while conducting our sabbatical research. How do we share the amazing conversations that we have had with all the teachers, students, and principals that we have talked to across the county (spanning Invercargill to Kaitaia) and the amazing people we had the pleasure of meeting in the UK?

We have considered and played around with essays, formal reports, wikis, and websites but came increasingly concerned that they were boring (or worse still) would not read by our target audience (parents, teachers and students). We have started this series in the hope that they are bite sized and easily digestable.

They take ages to make but I am sure that we will get better as we learn more about the program we are using. Here is Episode One - The Introduction. Coming soon: Episode Two - 10 things we hate about standardised assessment and Episode Three - 20 things you can do to Marginalise the National Standards (and not your students).
