Weekend Ed. Quote ~ October 26

“Creating opportunities for teams to learn from each other, by encouraging a culture of sharing also opened up more learning opportunities than could have been possible if they had learnt within their teams… this culture of sharing enabled them to acquire a wide repertoire of pedagogical approaches for use in their subject areas.” Divaharan & Koh, 2010, p. 565.

Our PBS Course Has Ended: Now What?

Our  PBS course concluded last night and, even after 12 years of course facilitation, I miss you all.

Here, I make my pitch for dedicated educators, parents (and especially parents who are educators!) to get very involved in your local school politics. The school board, the local teacher representation board, the local PTA are excellent ways to navigate your local education system and provide your expertise.

All: please consider yourself nominated by me, for your next level of educational service!!

Dr. T 🙂
