Recently released league tables show that government changes to the educational system are beginning to have an impact, according to Michael Gove, Secretary of State for Education. And the impact is positive, says Gove, who addressed journalists and commentators with news of figures demonstrating that fewer children are being taught in under-performing schools in the secondary sector. Opposition to the coalition government’s educational changes remains, however, and commentators claim that…Continue

This year my school celebrated National Inclusive Schools Week, but in a slightly different way. The opportunity presented itself to have our yearly Heritage Day and Inclusive Schools Week at the same time. The decision, to include Heritage Day in the mix with Inclusive Schools Week, proved to be a challenge but ultimately a good…Continue

Maybe you have thought about the question – “Why is it that nearly all infants, barring the very few with some chemical or physical issue, learn to speak their mother tongue(s) to the level of their peers and only a few years later these figures get reversed?” That is very few children once they go to school ever learn a subsequent language to any level of decent…Continue

La educación especial, léase con formato integración/inclusión en el Uruguay es absolutamente deficiente y los pasos para lograr superar el formato “reparativo” médico son lentos y sin una planificación acorde.
Por nuestras similitudes culturales con los españoles, buscaremos mostrar la diferencia positiva a favor de este modelo, aún cuando resta mucho por lograr, por lo menos existe un “modelo” a desarrollar. Los países latinoamericanos, y en especial del MERCOSUR, son muy similares a…

Graham Bell and Einstein are two brilliant minds of science who struggled due to learning disabilities. Learning disabilities don’t necessarily affect aptitude, yet how students are taught and directed impacts social and educational achievements. Today’s minds are the brilliant scientists, teachers, and mothers of the future. Proper schooling and social adjustment within warrants the attention of those doctoring and administering laws regarding the trajectory of special education.…Continue

It is acknowledged that tools help with the "perception" of knowledge. The magnifying glass, the telescope, and the microscope were objects that opened up an entirely new world. It is also acknowledged that people's fingers are too big to examine an amoeba, and people can't just walk up to the moon.
The other biggie in the knowledge game was "the drawing", the recording of information, but further to this was the "sequential" recording of data, which led…

When I saw this statement in a recent discussion... on another education forum on a different site, I went cold.
My feeling is that such a statement is only true if you create a situation where people are taught to believe it.....

Having just found this Ning, I was asked why I wanted to join the "Future of Education?" I was intriqued immediately by the question as my first response was " Why wouldn't I?" and its follow-up question "Why wouldn't EVERY teacher?"
This question has been pushing me to my "leading edge" (Thanks Joelle!) for quite some time now.
What IS the future of education? I think it is reigniting educational curiosity, questioning truths while respecting others, and developing ethical…Continue

It might seem odd to begin a blog post with this title but hopefully you will find that the analogy is quite apt.
We all live in houses. However, the style, the quality, the fittings, the size, and the neighbourhoods that our houses are in are all different. It seems to be a trend in most countries that many people aspire to the larger house, the higher quality fittings, the expensive neighbourhoods, the more impressive styles, and so on. It would be a rare person that aspires to a…Continue
