Creativity or rather the lack of it is becoming and increasingly important issue within a global context of increased emphasis on standardisation and testing within educational systems. In this webinar Nik looks at a new British Council publication that seeks to redress the balance and help teachers to interject an element of creativity into the English language classroom.
Nik examines the background to the emergence of the book and explores the re-emerging importance of creativity in the educational milieu.

I do enjoy a good current events map quiz.  Yes, geography is about more than just locating things on the map, but that is still a pretty foundational spatial-thinking skill to build upon. You can zoom it to place the points, but this is a very hard quiz that is not for novices (if you can get more than 130 points, you'll earn the title geo-champ).  If you want some more quizzes with perhaps more direct applicability in the classroom, click here for online regional quizzes.

The idea from the Seek, Sense, Share PKM network that speaks to the development of a framework for professional development. PKM is driven by metacognition and allows the individual to seek to fill identified knowledge gaps and make sense of the information that is available and further share the knowledge that is gained. This info-graphic supports the framework and identifies the flow among the ideas in the Seek, Sense, Share process of PKM.
