Back to school essentials, for teachers! – UKEdChat.com

Back to school essentials, for teachers! – UKEdChat.com | ICTmagic | Scoop.it
There is so much publicity and marketing around for the ‘Back to school’ push, and here in the UK it starts back in June as retailers grapple to win custom. But students are not the only ones returning to school after a pro-longed break, so we asked teachers what their essential items are to buy, before returning back for another school year. Here are the top 15 items, in no particular order, and you can see the responses in the Storify summary...

The Vested Interests in EdTech by @MrMcKavanaghRE – UKEdChat.com | ICTmagic | Scoop.it
Either it’s the case that everyone is talking about Educational Technology (EdTech) at the moment, or it is true that you ‘trap’ yourself in bubbles of your own interest. Whilst either could be true, from conversations that I’ve either had in the staffroom or online, there is a real trend towards talking about which apps/websites/other pieces of cool kit you can use in the classroom in enhance or benefit the learning that is taking place...

Action Research – What and how? by @Clare2ELT – UKEdChat.com

Action Research – What and how? by @Clare2ELT – UKEdChat.com | ICTmagic | Scoop.it
Many schemes of professional development for teachers, as well as advanced teaching certificates, include an element of ‘Action Research’ (AR). In my work as a team leader of EFL tutors, I’ve come to see just how important AR is for teachers to continue to develop and professionalise their teaching practices. And I’m so enthusiastic about teachers doing research that I want to share some introductory thoughts with a wider audience – with you, my dear blog readers! I hope I can inspire you to start your own AR projects, and would love to hear what you get up to...

Teaching about the “stress bucket” in schools by @sam_oldale – UKEdChat.com

Teaching about the “stress bucket” in schools by @sam_oldale – UKEdChat.com | ICTmagic | Scoop.it
A few months ago I went on a Mental Health First Aid in schools course. We learnt about the stress bucket. So it goes like this. Basically we all have a stress bucket. If it gets too full as the stresses of life flow in to it, it will over fill and over flow and we will begin to feel overwhelmed. Coping strategies are like a tap on the bucket and should be used to allow some of the stress to be released and will prevent us from becoming overwhelmed. If our stress bucket gets too full we can suffer from mental ill health. Some life events such as bereavement, illness etc. can cause our buckets to overflow quite quickly but sometimes small life stressors can build and accumulate also causing our buckets to fill...

UKEdMag: Active Tech by @ICTMagic – UKEdChat.com | ICTmagic | Scoop.it
Technology is often lambasted for creating lazy, passive cyber couched-potatoes. While the hours we endure bathed in flickering pixel light, slumped in a variety of contorted lurching positions over the input device of our choice is hardly the recipe for a healthy body. Yet, technology is becoming ever more part of our active lives and it is also spilling out into the ‘real’ world. As teachers, we can insist technology, or we can make it part of our classroom repertoire for PE and beyond...

UKEdMag: Get their hands dirty! by @MissNina1983 – UKEdChat.com | ICTmagic | Scoop.it
It is essential that children in today’s ‘technology focused world’ get real, hands-on experiences. The only things that some of my children have in their hands, once at home, are games console controls! By making learning fun and interactive we can engage children in finding out about the world around them and their past, instilling a love of learning and giving them some practical skills to use in the real world...
