The personal learning network for educators

Many schools are implementing, or deciding to implement, BYOD/BYOT programs.  I think this is a great idea as it teaches students how to use their personal devices to supplement/enhance their learning.  I still think there are schools that may not support such a program due to cell phone/device restrictions.  What is the philosophy of your school regarding BYOT?  For additional information, here is the link to a BYOT Network Blog:

Franklin Regional is piloting the a BYOD (same as BYOT) program at our high school right now.  Initial feedback is positive from the teachers at the high school.  The middle school is next for implementing the program.  I will use this blog to help prepare for the implementation for next year.  Thanks Chris!

Catch up or recovery?

I've been intrigued by the language of "catch up" which has come from government ministers and even the Children's Commissioner. The idea that lockdown has resulted in lost learning and a widening of the gap can't be disputed but it is the solutions put forward by government which has revealed the reductive nature of the government's attitude to learning and to young people. To reduce education and learning to an accumulation of facts devoid from any contextual influence is just simply naive.…See More
