BYOP - Bring Your Own Passion

The idea of BYOD – Bring Your Own Device (or BYOT – Bring Your Own Technology) is something that is bubbling away in the back of my mind. But recently I’ve turned my thoughts to something more important to transforming education for our kids at Crusoe, and that is BYOP – students bringing their own passions to school, and how we tap into them.When a colleague showed an interest in our Global Writers’ Club, I was only to happy…See More

Sink or Swim

How important is it that we are educating citizens to be scientifically literate? Very important.As well as teaching the curriculum, I think we have an obligation as science teachers to be developing students' ability to think critically about scientific information they are exposed to in the media. Part of this is making students enthusiastic about science and get them to see it as relevant to their lives.Part of our approach to achieving this at Crusoe has been to invite real-life scientists…See More

Doing the work

Reposted from sbaglia.comIt's difficult for me to believe, on occasions, that it was back in 2010 when I started dabbling in getting students to contact experts outside of the school to support their own inquiry learning. Fast forward to 2013, and from Castlemaine via Maryborough I find myself at Crusoe College.When innovating, the structures of a secondary school can make things more difficult than at a primary, where flexibility allows you to…See More

Crusoe College is the sixth school that I have been employed at as a teacher. Every school is different, with its own strengths and weaknesses, characteristics and foibles. It’s been just under three weeks, but I can’t help being excited at what is possible.The start, as it has always been for me, is getting students to use a blog as a replacement, or addition to, their exercise book as a record of their learning. I have written many posts about the benefits of doing so; one of the most…See More

Namaste!

I'm back!India is an incredible place to travel to. Several years ago, my wife and I spent a month travelling through the well-beaten path of Delhi, Agra and Rajasthan. The Mughal architecture is astounding, the sheer rhythm of life on the streets is almost overwhelming, and the food is, quite simply, glorious. While it's not an easy place to travel, it is certainly one of the most memorable places you could ever visit.So it was with considerable excitement that we welcomed St Mark's School in…See More

Introducing.... theglobalschool.net

 It's been a little while since I have blogged anything, but it has been a very busy time for me on a couple of fronts.Something I've been grappling with has been the future of the Writers' Club.

It began as an offshoot for work I was doing for Castlemaine North Primary School, known locally asThe North School, which is where the address thenorthschool.com comes from.However, the hosting plan for thenorthschool.com is…See More
