Sharing practice in the teaching world requires one to keep on top of blog posts, tweets, facebook groups and that isn’t really scratching the surface. There is so much to share however more importantly, there is so much to learn from what other educators are doing in the classroom. Just yesterday I found a great tweet by @neilhopkin about using Evernote in the classroom for formative assessment. The tweet included a video and then when I looked closer I saw the idea had first been released in 2012. 2012! How could I have missed this? Then I realised how much learning I am missing out on a daily basis. Mental note: check Twitter at least twice a day.
Thinking about this more, I then considered whether I was doing enough cross promotion. Not only is cross publication one of the easiest and often most successful marketing strategies, from a teacher’s perspective, it is a means of sharing practice further afield. So on that note, I leave you with some recent articles in Education Today magazine including my past two columns on technology in education.
