Education Images, Universal Image College fund raisers are bracing for donations to take at least as steep a nosedive over the next several years as they did after the Great Recession, according to a survey of 110 development leaders released on Monday.

Lecturer and student relationships matter even more online than on campus | Kate Roll and Marc Ventresca | Education

In a matter of weeks, universities have changed how we teach in at least one important way: we’re now online. It is now becoming clear that this shift may last at least into the new academic year and likely longer. As lecturers, this is not necessarily something to be afraid of: it’s an unparalleled opportunity to rethink teaching and to refocus on relationships with students. In the early days of teaching online, the focus was on recreating the familiar set-up of…

The Worst Of Smart Classroom Management – Education Article

For the past several weeks, and as part of a new book I’m working on, I’ve been reading through the entire SCM archive of 560 articles. And I noticed something unusual. Every year or two there is an article that bombs. And not just a little, but spectacularly. As in a Charlie Brown whiff or the French at Agincourt. While even the least popular articles get shared via social media a couple hundred times or so, a few get a…

Buildings are closed, but this district is still teaching and feeding its students – Education Article

Up until schools started shutting down in response to the COVID-19 outbreak, teachers in Dawson Independent School District didn’t use our website much. This wasn’t because they didn’t want to. It was because, like most teachers, they were more focused on all the other hard work of teaching young people. With all of our buildings closed since March, they’re all online teachers now, and they got up to speed on running their teacher pages on our site in less than…

Are Schools Ready for What Comes Next? – Education Article

A post-Covid19 world will be here eventually, but it is anyone’s guess when…

Val Knight obituary | Education

My sister, Val Knight, who has died aged 82, was a memorable reception class teacher at Shiplake primary school, near Henley on Thames, Oxfordshire. More than 30 years after leaving her class, many of her former pupils still recall her exploits, methods and demands with an affection and fondness few teachers can claim.

Defund the Police to Fund Public Schools – Education Article

 Back in the pre-Coronavirus days when we still had in-person classes I used to come to school in a suit.   Every day, suit and tie.   I didn’t have to – the dress code allowed me to wear pretty much whatever I wanted and most teachers dressed much more casually.   Now let me be clear – I’m not saying my way was the only way. Each teacher has his or her own way of doing things that work…

‘We’re still waiting’: schools lack free laptops pledged for poorer GCSE pupils | Education

Headteachers fear the government’s promise to deliver laptops to disadvantaged teenagers will not be fulfilled as the majority said this weekend they had still received none.  On 19 April, the secretary of state for education, Gavin Williamson, announced the scheme, claiming it would “take the pressure off” parents and schools, and support children without any access to online learning while schools were shut.  Yet, with just a week to go before secondary schools reopen more widely to pupils on 15…
