Concrete ideas

This has been on the back of my mind for a little while, but seeing Stuart's tweet earlier brought it to the front:
This is full of wonderful and aspirational aims; lesson plans they aren't. They raise far more questions than answers.
How do we turn this manifesto into proper meaningful at-the-coal-face lessons. I, for one, don't have a clue. Why don't we use the Digital Leaders scheme as an opportunity to to collaborate, share ideas and good practice and work on a collective scheme of work that will benefit our learners and we practitioners?
So, who's with me?


  1. Yikes sharing at secondary level? Unheard of man! This (sharing) came up today in the All Wales Filtering meeting. I will pop a new entry up within the next 24 hours about what was covered so that we are all in the loop. Nothing exciting really...

  2. I know, why on earth would I want to share with fellow teachers, after all,we are in competition for class numbers! If your lessons are better than mine, they won't want to come to my school!

  3. Haha! Sharing - that is one of the key things about being a Digital Leader - sharing your insights with others on the road.
    Look forward to your update Stuart, and absolutely great idea Al to create a Digital Leaders collective scheme of work that will benefit our learners and yourselves as practitioners?

    I love this graphic from Common Sense Media - it's designed to make us stop, and reflect on the learning outcomes - not tools (which have a role), something we have been discussing in our first 3 days on the programme.
