MathsClass brings so many good things to my teaching:

  • the ability to reflect and share
  • meeting so many great teachers across subjects and across the world (Twitter aids that as well)
  • pushing myself to continually improve

If you’ve been a teacher for a while, I would encourage you to start blogging (or an easier first step, join Twitter, NSW DET teacher could join Yammer – in particular Axiom) – your wisdom and knowledge is valuable and it’s great to share and discuss with others.

If you’re a new teacher, interacting online provides so many opportunities to reflect and learn. Whilst writing a post for a blog sounds like extra work, I find that reflecting via this blog gives me a means of critically examining how an activity went and improving it for next time.

Happy birthday! Thanks for this amazing resource. While you are reflecting on reflecting - could you add a few comments about where you see the line between public and private reflection? So for example : if you have lessons that don't work - are you comfortable blogging about them here?

I have blogged about lessons that don't work. e.g. [url=][/url] I would keep any comments about the classroom generic and focus on the activity and student responses never on student's themselves.
