Tonight we had a disaggregated evening at school with the aim of learning how to build and use the VLE. This is the second session we’ve had on it, the first being 6 weeks ago. And it really annoyed me.
It always strikes me that, as teachers, we we are supposed to be constantly differentiating the activities we set in class to meet the needs of all our learners. So why is it that when we have staff training it is only ever aimed at the ‘less able’ (for want of a better term) or the least experienced?OK, so it was about ICT and a lot of teachers struggle with it but that doesn’t mean you can just ignore the one or two that get it and can do it before you’ve even shown them how. The challenge was just not sufficient. I ended upclearing out my email inbox and downloading google chrome so that I could get on Google Wave. Good Times.
