Hooked on Ventilation by Stacey Mcwee

Hooked on Ventilation by Stacey Mcwee

This August marked two years since I lay in the operating theatre of a hospital whilst surgeons removed my appendix. Earlier on that day I was sent home from work with what I thought was a stomach bug, however within a few hours I was vomiting, shivering, feeling cold, clammy and in severe pain…. I had no idea what was to come, my suspected appendicitis was in fact a life-threatening condition called sepsis.

Microsoft Surface Hub as a Teaching and Learning Tool – First Impressions

Classroom technology isn’t good. In spite of the fact that you have a room full of students to educate, you’re probably fighting the technology as much as you are using it. Projectors refusing to detect inputs, PCs deciding it’s time for an update right in the middle of a class or just frustration at poorly configured digital whiteboards and visualizers that make you miss the days of chalk and dust allergies.

Spaced repetition and the Pomodoro Technique

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Studying for an exam is hard work, and most students will have experienced the pressure to cram as much learning as they can into a short space of time. During my undergraduate and postgraduate study days I remember spending long chunks of time chained to the library study desks before an exam or piece of coursework was due. It turns out that relying on big blocks of study time might not be the best way to do it after all. There has been a lot of research in the last few years done on the most efficient and effective ways to study, and something which comes up time and again is the concept of spaced repetition. A popular method which has spaced repetition at it’s core is the Pomodoro Technique.

The Moocs Revolution

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

For the first time ever, UK students will be able to take part in massive open online courses (Moocs) as part of their degree accreditation. These open access, free online learning programmes have been around since 2008, but they have never counted towards achieving a traditional degree in the UK before. The University of the People, an American online university, has been awarding degrees based purely on online study, free of tuition fees, since 2009, and has helped thousands of students achieve their degrees without the high price tag of traditional learning. Now, the UK is following suit with the University of Leeds and the Open University leading the way with the Moocs revolution.

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

 As we enter the last week of school across the country, teachers and students begin to meet on common ground, putting aside their disputes and sharing the same warm optimism for sunshine this summer. At this time of year, teachers often feel worn down from the endless lesson planning and emotionally drained from the constant pressure to hit and exceed targets in all shapes and forms. For teachers in particular, the summer holiday is a a much-desired (and in most cases, much-deserved) break from well, teaching.

As a teacher of science, here’s a reminder of the top 12 fun, light-hearted and hilarious funny teaching experiences – from my own experiences and those shared by other teachers.
