We have a few stone heads questioning the validity of these Scottish stats

The data comes from the Scottish Government’s official statistics agency. Irrefutable source

In the 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿working age population (age 20-65) just 1,754 Covid deaths were recorded

Only 287, solely from Covid Image

The truth about students learning to #read in #Florida from a REAL #PublicSchool Parent in the wake of the recent #bookbans. A 🧵
#Teachers in K-8 utilize what’s called the Accelerated
Reader Program. #TruthMatters
K-8 Students search for books within their tested reading level that they are interested in reading. Books in the #library are divided up by Book Level so students can easily find a book within their reading level. 📚
Students can also utilize the AR Bookfind website to find books within their tested reading range. With each book they read, they take a test in order for that book to count as a book that they read for class. If they don’t pass the test, they have to take it again. 📚

The bills on #Education are being analyzed by the Bucharest Government, in order to establish the final form that will be submitted for #Parliament approval. The debates in Parliament, however, are very likely to get heated. (1/4)
The Government believes that the new laws will help reduce #school #dropout, improve the country's #education system and help young people adapt to the labour market requirements. (2/4)
The opposition has criticised the amendments announced by the line minister @ligiadeca, describing the bills as faulty, superficially made and prone to creating imbalances. The bills have been criticized by #students, #teachers and #parents. (3/4)

On February 1st, thousands of workers are taking strike action against the Tories’ Strikes (Minimum Service Levels) Bill, & against the destruction of education & health as well as for a wage that protects from the #CostOfLivingCrisis.
This is the first time since the 2011 N30 pensions strike that so many unions have taken action together.

In #Leicester, the March and rally appears to be taking the same form that it took in 2011. A march through the town centre, & a rally at the Athena Events Venue. I was at that march & rally, and filmed it.

அரசு தரப்புடன் நடைபெற்ற பேச்சுவார்த்தை தோல்வி அடைந்ததால், போராட்டம் தொடரும் என இடைநிலை ஆசிரியர்கள் அறிவித்துள்ளனர்.

ஏற்கனவே 3நாட்களாக உண்ணாவிரதப் போராட்டத்தில் ஈடுபட்டு பலர் மருத்துவ மனையில் உள்ள போதும் போராட்டம் தொடரும் என்றே உறுதியாக உள்ளார்கள். Image
அரசுப் பள்ளிகளில் கடந்த 2009ஆம் ஆண்டு மே 31ஆம் தேதி, நியமிக்கப்பட்ட இடைநிலை ஆசிரியர்களுக்கு ஒரு ஊதியமும், அதே ஆண்டு ஜூன் 1ஆம் தேதி நியமனம் செய்யப்பட்ட ஆசிரியர்களுக்கு மற்றொரு ஊதியமும் நிர்ணயிக்கப்பட்டுள்ளது.
இதனால், ஒருநாள் வித்தியாசத்தில் அடிப்படை ஊதியத்தில் 3,170 ரூபாய் குறைந்துள்ளது. இதனால் 20 ஆயிரத்துக்கும் மேற்பட்ட இடைநிலை ஆசிரியர்கள் பாதிக்கப்பட்டுள்ளனர்.

இந்நிலையில், சம வேலைக்கு சம ஊதியம் என்ற கோரிக்கையை முன்னிறுத்தி, இடைநிலை ஆசிரியர்கள் தொடர்ந்து 4வது நாளாக உண்ணாவிரத

Antibody Affinity Maturation to SARS-CoV-2 #Omicron Variants in a #Teachers Cohort…
Our study, released on @medrxivpreprint this week, looked at the #Covid immunity response of a cohort of primary school staff: 61% had been infected in the 6 months prior to their @Attomarker test and were probably exposed to BA1 or BA.4/5.
The good news is that a number of teachers developed high-quality #antibodies, both in concentration and quality and tuned to the local variant. We think this may have been because they had been repeatedly exposed to SARS-CoV-2.

#ChatGPT is amazingly disruptive! Only time will tell how this tech will transform our lives. For now, I'm enjoying creating poems, crafting emails, & asking weird questions I don't know the answers to. My most fav is, "how can I use the platform to teach middle-school students?"
Brainstorming ideas to leverage the platform for educational purposes. I can already see use cases for creativity education. What else? #AIforEducation #ChatGPT
Another use case. I asked #ChatGPT to create a 100-word reading comprehension paragraph for me that was suitable for 5th graders.

"#ALEC’s proposed Free Speech in Higher Education Act debated by members this week would ban public universities from using bias reporting systems to prevent or punish “offensive” or “unwanted” speech by students, faculty, staff, or guests."… #HigherEd Image
#ALEC’s FORUM Act "has passed in multiple states with the help of the hate group Alliance Defending Freedom, aims to address the manufactured free speech “crisis” being hyped by the Right, often by sending extremist provocateurs to speak at colleges and universities." #HigherEd Image
The real reason for the attack on libraries… This "has always been about keeping people uneducated and ignorant. Suppressing diverse ideas has always been the hallmark of conservatism, and free libraries stand in the way of their goal."

Hey 👋 #educators and defenders of #publicschools:

Got an angry #MAGA family relative at your #Thanksgiving 🦃 table who likes to yell at you about #publiceducation?

Here’s a short “well actually” sheet to 👏 back:
@Network4pubEd @NPEaction @PV4PS
“I’m sick of just throwing money at #schools that just waste it!”

Well, actually, Aunt Betsy, investing in #publiceducation is one of the best things taxpayers can do—more $$, better outcomes. @KiraboJackson…

“And all this crime you damn liberals have going around too!”

Well, actually, spending more $$ on #schools helps reduce long term #crime rates too! @fordschool @BrittanyEdPol @JasonBaron4

While Republicans are smearing #DragQueens, #teachers and #librarians as "groomers," a GOP candidate in South Dakota THIS NOVEMBER was arrested for grooming and raping a family member over multiple years—and the @sdgop didn't even ask him to drop out of the race.
While Republicans are accusing others of being sexual predators, another GOP candidate in South Dakota this November LOST TO HIS MOM and then went out and raped a woman in the bathroom stall at a bar.
And that's not all:

Last year, the richest man in South Dakota—a YUGE GOP donor—was being investigated for child porn.

Yet somehow this politically connected billionaire ended up facing no charges.

If a #parent of an #SEN child (esp autistic) presents as #anxious, high maintenance, needy, rude, full on or any of the other awful terminology used to describe them, what do you think might be *really* going on. Let’s unpack it 🧵

#Teachers #SENCO #Inclusion leads #SENtwitter
This is not a new topic. Parents have been talking about the difficulties of being labelled as overly anxious for many years.
So why does this keep happening?
2/🧵 #Teachers #SENCO #Inclusion leads #SENtwitter
Professionals don’t want to feel helpless. Difficult situations and lack of resources cause feelings of helplessness all around and it is easier to blame the most vulnerable and easy target. The anxious parent. 3/🧵

.@tacomacc For years I have been trying to remember the name of this wonderful English professor who reignited my love of learning and writing over two decades ago. Can you help? (thread on #education #teaching)
Before @tacomacc I went to an expensive Catholic high school in Tacoma that will remain unnamed (cough, cough @BellarminePrep) where I had a horrible experience. I struggled with math & when one lesson was proving especially difficult, I sought extra help.
I came in at lunch each day and after school for a week. Still stumped, I finally said to my teacher: Maybe I learn differently. I'm just not getting it. Can you try to explain it differently?

Do you know that #students educated with challenge-based gamification raised their performance by up to 𝟖𝟗.𝟒𝟓% compared to those who only received lectures? (ScienceDirect, 2020)

Here are 𝟰 𝗿𝗲𝗮𝘀𝗼𝗻𝘀 why games can be added to nearly any lesson:

[🧵 thread]
1/ Game-based learning is built to be adaptive. You can monitor kids' progress and performances and update timely.

By 𝘁𝗿𝗮𝗰𝗸𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗶𝗺𝗽𝗿𝗼𝘃𝗲𝗺𝗲𝗻𝘁, we can identify where learners are performing well and where they need support.

Full article:
2/ Game-based learning is about changing the approach of the learner towards learning.

The durability of learning is enhanced by more choices and 𝗰𝘂𝘀𝘁𝗼𝗺𝗶𝘇𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 of the material. The goal is for the learner to enjoy the process of #learning itself.

This piece is fine for what it is. What it and others are understating or flat out missing is the link between religious fanaticism and anti-democratic anti-election white supremacism in the school #privatization push…
To give serious space to people like DeAngelis (a ~30 yo lobbyist-w/PhD) to give “thoughts” is appropriate for what the #vouchers movement is but to quote him intellectually rather than a political actor misses the role rightwing think-tanks have played in election denialism
It’s esp problematic given the only real offset to #DeVos/DeAngelis is Mann himself who’s been dead since 1859 and isn’t even directly quoted at that.

#Teachers doesn't mean only academic teachers, they could be religious, spiritual, counsellors, several personalities who would have influenced our life in various ways. They are all our teachers and we vow all of them our #gratitude 🙏🙏🙏

As the new school year begins for many, I thought it might be helpful to share a thread of my favorite online resources for #teachers that are not Google Workspace tools. I don't work for any of these BTW.
I really like to see what my students are thinking, so I am excited to dig into the visible thinking routine protocols from Project Zero. @ProjectZeroHGSE…
I need to remember to use it more because there is so much potential in @Classroomscreen with so many handy tools at your fingertips.
