A few things that stood out this evening when I reviewed the starred items in Feedly. The full list is at http://ihavemostlybeenreading.tumblr.com/. I just need to work out how to get StaffRm recommendations in there…
Following some recent conversations about ‘knowledge organisers’, this post by James Theobald contains a link to a shared Google Drive where these are being crowd sourced. Both an interesting idea and a great way of sharing the load.
Tom Sherringham’s blog is one of my ‘must-reads’. This is an excellent summary of his teaching posts from the last three years of blogging.
There’s so much good stuff over on StaffRm I could do one of these posts dedicated to stuff posted over there alone. This from James Mannion is worth checking out both for the approach and the findings.
I first saw David Didau talking about scaffolding in the video of his talk on Slow Writing at ReasearchED. This post develops some of those ideas a little further. It’s one of those things that sounds so obvious once you hear it – the thing about scaffolding is that you should have a plan for taking it down.
(Bonus David Didau – How to get assessment wrong – seriously this guy is producing an embarrassment of riches at the moment)
While I still think the concept is a useful one to consider, this from James Mannion again (on his own blog this time) makes an interesting analysis of when a concept is taken too far.
