Zayne, it is not me who can bring change.
Tt is in hands of people walking pass the Thinking Tools billboard and tick the block: “Noted – Done and dusted.”
Einstein said: “You cannot expect better results by doing the same things.”
This is why I am currently involved with 11 countries who are eager. For example teachers in Uganda are put…[Read more]
Once you work with Thinking Tools tracking evidence and progress is a walk in the park with the Formative Assessment Rubric, but that excludes flipped teaching as I do not regard copied work from resources such as textbooks and manuals as a learner’s authentic evidence.
Zayne within blended learning I have a fundamental problem with the flipped classroom part.

This was riddle I wanted to unravel since my days as a junior teacher. I spent hours and hours sequencing, in those days on transparencies which was projected on a screen by means of an overhead projector.
When writing and sketching the information that must be transferred to the students’ brains, it was always difficult to choose between a p…[Read more]

The more teachers I train, the more I find that they are trained to teach children who are not struggling.
Once a child does not understand, they use the same method which already failed the child – they re-explained – only slower and better.
Notwithstanding this, the numbers of children in different classes who do not understanding do not d…[Read more]
It is learners who are spoon-fed with PowerPoint sides and therefore not empowered to seek facts themselves.
Cas Olivier replied to the topic What is learned helplessness? It is the result of our spoon-feeding in the forum 4th Industrial Revolution 1 year, 1 month ago
Demarcation is not part of my normal Thinking Tools vocabulary, maybe a pronunciation challenge from my side.
