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.

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.

I haven’t been to any college, and after failing in 11th class I never went for formal qualification.

When I thought of taking technical education at Pusa Polytechnic, I again failed. Which made me a 10th pass person, or school dropout (sounds cool these days). ImageImageImageImage
But since childhood, I have been blessed with Gurus like Shamona Ma’am, VP Singh Sir, Madhu Ma’am, Rashmi Ma’am, Joel Sir, Indrani Ma’am and so many which can’t be named.

Today on Guru Poornima day, I got an opportunity to teach 5000+ students in Dhule district to address. ImageImage
Which included those who passed 11th class, that means I was sharing knowledge to more qualified people than me.

It happened just because there were gurus in my life who taught me beyond books and I earned wisdom which I am sharing with thousands. Image

During half term, #TDaPE ticked over a very special milestone and I promised @adamjames317 a run down of the top 10 episodes to date. Then the term started…but a promise is a promise. So over the next 10 days we’re going to have a look at what has piqued your interest so far…
#10 Creeping in at number 10 is “8 ways to get the most from talk in the classroom”. A masterclass in deep thinking from @lwilliamsjones and @Suchmo83 with practical advice for all teachers.


#9 It’s no surprise that @gareth_metcalfe makes an appearance in the top 10, as erudite and he is wonderful, this dissection of our use of manipulatives in Upper KS2 w/@Suchmo83 is one for the ages…

Did you know AB Ed @AdrianaLaGrange cut funding to AB School Council Assoc (ASCA) @ABschoolcouncil by whopping 75%, greatly affecting all AB parents’ ability to have a voice & strength of collective? #abed #abpoli #ableg #education #parents #school #council #community 1/
Did you know AB ED @AdrianaLaGrange formed “Parent Advisory” consisting of 40 AB (handpicked?) parents? Why? ASCA @ABschoolcouncil has formed collective voice for ~90 yrs that represents ALL AB School Councils available to ALL AB parents #abed #abpoli #ableg #education 2/
ASCA is non-profit & drastically slashed budget to survive. Looking at budget breakdown during AGM today, over 50% provides learning opportunities/professional development so parent volunteers can do their legislated jobs on school council #abed #abpoli #parents #volunteers 3/

Who is Responsible??
An old African proverb says it takes a village to raise a child.

Training children is partnership between the Parents. the School and the society they live in.
The report card that just came out now is the results of parents and the school. My conjecture is that something has messed up these kids at home way before school. School has become a conducive environment for enabling the mixing of bad eggs and blank eggs.
Homes and schools ought to be a controlled environment, where children are shielded from some of the things that society offers. Society sings lewd songs with reckless abandon; the media is bursting with inappropriate age sensitive information that is uncensored.
