8. Don’t sweat about the small stuff #teaching #brilliantdayatschool

Don’t sweat about the small stuff. If the borders on your display are crooked – well so what? They won’t actually stop the children from learning. Time is precious in teaching so make use of all the resources and tools that you have available to you. Share plans and resources, use stickers and stamps and make being in class as much fun as you can. Remember why you wanted to teach in the first place. Think back to your successes and the pupils you have had an impact on.

6. Talk to others to solve problems #teaching #schools #brilliantdayatschool

Talk to people you trust about a particular situation or issue you are concerned with. There is almost always someone at work, it may be a teacher from another department, who will listen and give you some time, and will be on your side. Talking therapies are great if you can talk to the right sort of person. Often you don’t need advice, just someone to listen to you. However, beware the victim mindset

1. Make an effort to talk to someone different in the staffroom #teaching #health #stress #wellbeing #brilliantdayatschool

As teachers, we are sometimes guilty of moving in quite a small network of teacher friends/colleagues. A science department might, for instance, work together in a group of labs and prep rooms located together in a different part of the school. They then will probably socialise together and have lunch together. There is much to learn from integrating more and talking to teachers and support staff in other departments. Get to know other people and be interested in them.

This post will form part of a series of posts under the label of How to have a brilliant day at school….for teachers.

If you want to add your idea then please e-mail ridingseducational@gmail.com and will I will be sure to feature it with of course full credit to you.

Thank you

Lexplore – A clear view on reading #reading #education #teaching #learning #dyslexia #technology

A unique AI based method of assessing reading…

Combining 30 year’s research with the latest in machine learning and eye tracking technology, our unique solution is able to determine a child’s exact reading attainment in a matter of minutes.

“It is quick, straightforward and easy to manage within the day-to-day routine of the school.”

By monitoring spontaneous eye movements we can pick up on minor differences in the way children’s brains process text, helping to identify those with language based learning difficulties much earlier in their development, and tailor specific interventions to their individual needs.

“The assessment helped uncover examples of children who were not previously identified as having reading difficulties.”

Requiring no administrative input our solution supports existing learning programmes by freeing up teacher time and quickly demonstrating the outcome of targeted interventions for each individual child.
