A Social Theory of Learning, Schools and Landscapes of Practice

Jenny Connected

This question of which comes first, theory or practice, has often been the subject of discussion in my teaching career and particularly when I was a teacher trainer. Should we teach trainee teachers about learning theories before we send them into school and let them loose on children, or should we send them into school and engage them in practice, before we introduce them to learning theories?

Fifteen years ago he and others started Citizen Schools to help expand the resources that students are exposed to. His group started a charter school in a community health center in Dorchester.

Communication sins to avoid

Viv Mcwaters

I spent many school holidays, on my brother’s farm. It seemed natural that I would pursue a career as an agricultural journalist (especially as my first choice, astronomical photographer, seemed out of the question based solely on the peals of laughter that would ensue from any adults who asked me what I wanted to do). Obfuscation. Redundancy. Passive voice. Fancy-pants language. Overblown reports.

Gen Y = Creativity

Laurel Papworth- Social Network Strategy

Keep changing jobs, careers, stay flexible, until you find what you love, so that your children will learn to be their own person (hope). A bit like when kids finish school and are at home for the holidays. When I wrote about Generations of Fear : Each generation is motivated by a hope and a fear. The hope is that we ‘leave the world a better place than when we entered it’ or ‘want a better life for my children’ Fears tend to change with each generation.
