I’ve been blogging since 2000, but from an educational context, I published my first blog on teaching here in October 2010 and then moved to this website in August 2012. You can find every blog indexed below (circa. November 2015).

I have blogged over 500 times on this site and have indexed every post below. To mark this blog, I have published my inside tips for readers: 10 Tips for Education Bloggers.

500+ blogposts …

The cuts of teaching and learning:

Teaching and Learning cuts and joints!

I have been writing about education in journals and publications since 2004; focusing solely on teaching and learning, Design Technology, the Arts, staff wellbeing and most recently, classroom resources for every teacher.

This has evolved (c)2008 into writing more and more about school leadership; staff development, wellbeing and educational policy; plus other areas shown in the image. On this page, every blog is collectively listed and catalogued for the reader to source more easily: ‘The cuts of teaching and learning‘; my own educational-referencing.

I now, no longer update this webpage as it will become unmanageable for readers to navigate, and is not something I would wish to sustain forever. Still, I hope the reader can find blogs catalogued, as well as use the ‘search’ icon to find what they are looking for. Enjoy!

Five years (circa. August 2015) equates to approximately 1700 days of sharing. Online writing, collaborating and reflection … I relaunched this website in August 2012 and have been truly amazed – and sometimes fortunate – with what sharing (good) practice online can bring. (I enclose ‘good’ in brackets because everything online is not always good – including my own – and must NOT be taken as verbatim). I am always pleased to read and see others taking up the challenge and joining the blogging world; particularly those who choose to start sharing their educational musings online in order to share and develop themselves. If that is you, well done and welcome to a wonderful world!
