Founded in 2008, yet largely hidden away from the world, Ross McGill created a simple Twitter account in 2010 to start sharing his blog posts and resources. Soon, the demand for his teaching and learning ideas spread rapidly across social media, reaching over 11 million people in every country around the world (except North Korea - there's a lesson in that fact). As a result, empowering all teachers to reduce their workload and become more effective in their work. With over 2,000 blog posts on the site dating back over 10 years, there is no aspect of school life untouched...
Ross' goal is simple. To make complex, classroom theory as practical and as accessible as possible for time-poor teachers.
- To give teachers a professional platform from which to be heard
- To promote the teaching community by sharing ideas, research; to challenge policy, guidance and publications
- To provide teachers across the world with solutions to support their professional lives and working environments
- To offer support to others and the chance to publish their work with us, publishing resources we believe in, content that is up to date and inclusive, and although we receive income from advertising, we will never promote a company’s product that we do not believe will make a difference to teaching and learning. This ensures our website remains free CPD for teachers.
