Andrea Stringer

One day in the September holidays, we met at the Hilton for lunch, just the two of us. My husband called me and asked if we were still there. He was picking me up and told me it would be good if we finished up soon and he asked if Helen was ok.

My Mind's Museum - by Matt Esterman

When is Australia going to be come a nation? In terms of education, Australia is both world-class and unequal. Both innovative and parochial. Both research-based and politically whimsical. Our states operate only nationally because of funding that flows - or doesn't - from federal coffers and always does with a set of footnotes that cause flags to be raised, reports to be redesigned and curricula adapted.

Read Write Respond - Aaron Davis

At my school, we are currently in the throes of implementing a new 'instructional model'. One of the interesting ideas that has come out of the whole process is that instruction is always built upon what Robert Marzano calls a guaranteed and viable curriculum.

An Australian Educator - Michelle Hostrup

It's report season. I should be finishing my reports and reading the reports of my team. I'm doing neither. I will pay for that later, but for now I 'need' to explore the issue of data walls. To be honest, I was a bit surprised to find myself in a very robust discussion on the weekend about these seemingly innocuous walls.

Combatting Schooling Injustice: Comenius Dreaming - Margaret Clark

Since retiring and becoming a twitter tragic over the last 2 years in my retirement what has struck me most is the extensive amount of debate and focus on feminist issues: gender justice; gender injustice; the importance of and the irrelevance of feminism in social media.

About Teaching - Corinne Campbell

I've been spending some time puzzling over why I love to follow some Twitter accounts but others, even though they are sharing and promoting great ideas, I find a little off-putting. I've realised that for me, it comes down to word choice. Accounts that I enjoy following tend to use reflective and inclusive language.
