New ‘Pedagogy’ topic- sharing thoughts, ideas and good practice
First of all let me say a HUGE thanks to everyone who has been following this website in the short two weeks that it has been running. As of today we have had 179 different visitors to the site from 14 different countries including 1 visitor from Brunei! People have been downloading the resources non-stop. In the first fortnight it seems as though the site is already helping maths teachers improve their practice and save time by sharing ideas and resources which was the mission from the start.
To build on the great early success of the site I’ve introduced a new topic of blog posts called ‘Pedagogy’. You’ll see it in the menu at the top of the page. The idea is to blog about pedagogy: the method and practice of teaching sharing things that I have learned, experimented with or good practice other people have written about. Will it be subjective? Of course. Will I change my mind about things as I become more experienced? Undoubtedly. Is it still worth blogging about? Definitely because healthy debate and reflection is always a good thing, for beginners just as much as for experienced pros.
This area of the blog will be much more interesting if people get involved in the debate, sharing their thoughts and experiences. You can do this by simply submiting them in the ‘comments’ section at the end of blog posts. Let me know what you think of my first pedagogy blog post Going through the praise withdrawal.
Thanks again and I hope you keep finding the site useful and thought-provoking.
