Teachmeet Scottish Learning Festival Fringe – Reflection Group 2

Teachmeet Scottish Learning Festival Fringe – Reflection Group 2

Once again, thank you very much to everyone at Pedagoo for organising such a fantastic event on Saturday.  I made this (very pretty) mindmap for Reflection Group 2.  We had a great view of all the drama going on outside.  Someone had parked their car up the hill but failed to put on the handbrake meaning that said car rolled right on down the hill and into the side of the hotel.  Nevertheless we had a very productive discussion and our responses to the three questions are represented above.

Unfortunately I couldn’t put any of my pledges in action on Monday (still on holiday).  However, today has been interesting.  Already I have recorded 7 “Show Me s” based on key passages from The Great Gatsby – Thank you very much Kenny for showing me “Show Me” !  On top of that I have been thinking solo taxonomy all day.  I’m looking forward to taking a bit of time to put this into action in my classroom.  Lisa Jane Ashes workshop was so interesting and has got me really inspired.  Finally, just before lunch, I encountered a fixed mindset in my S2 – I started work on that one immediately.  We’ll see how it goes…

Saturday was great: great surroundings, strong coffee, inspiring lovely teachers.  I am very much looking forward to the next event.
