There is a link to a page that talks about ‘Green TED talks’, it wasn’t really that that caught my eye but the idea of students preparing TED talk. It talks about using the green screen to provide a background and this is something that could be done here in school with the help of IT or SDLs, or it could just be done without. This could work well linking to independent learning and research skills.

This week’s tip is a dingbat created by a fellow PE teacher who works at Flixton (@TedfordDanielle). I am sure that most people know what a dingbat is but if not it is a visual word puzzle from which a well known phrase or saying has to be identified. In this case, it is keywords from our GCSE specification. I am sure this could be used in any subject area as a starter activity.
This is a nice blog to get us thinking about teaching and learning as we approach the new term. You may recognise the struggle zone and the six principles as I have shared this before. This is taken from the book ‘Make Every Lesson Count’ which is an excellent book if anyone would like to borrow it.
Thanks to John for sending this teaching tip.
There is a link below to a blog post that explains ways that an app called Word Foto can be used. If you don’t have an iPad and would like to me to make one for you, just send me a picture and up to 10 keywords. It takes minutes. Below is one that I am using tomorrow.
Thank you to Jason for sending through this link, it is an interesting read. A learning walk back in May really did demonstrate that we have the highest of expectations here at AGGS.
This tip was shared back in May and is something I stole from a teacher on twitter. Students watched a slow motion clip of a javelin thrower and prepared a voice over to share with a partner. The voice over included an analysis of muscles contracting/relaxing and also some analysis of the technique to link to our practical work. I am sure something similar could be used in other subjects in some way. Please do share an idea if you have done this or something similar before. Powerpoint attached.
For those using One Note, I am preparing something similar for them to complete in the collaboration space where they will record their voice over on the device directly to One Note. If you are interested in One Note and want a mini session, get in touch.
