The Educator's PLN

The personal learning network for educators

Today I used www.piclits.com for the first time with my students.

Kids loved it and we saw some really impressive writing from students who might not normally produce that kind of work.

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
