“So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, adieu” as the Inside Learning podcast bids farewell to listeners everywhere, and nowhere. For reasons we discuss on the podcast, Matthew and I have decided that this will be the last one; the archive will remain. Thank you to fellow presenters, loyal listeners, former guests and friends for being with us on an enjoyable learning journey. There will be a new learning venture in the offing soon, to be announced!
To help us celebrate Inside Learning and discuss the news in our time honoured, if lengthy, fashion we are delighted to be joined by regular co-presenters: Bill Boyd, Jay Helbert, Anne Glennie, and Gillian Campbell-Thow.
Amongst the news items covered are league tables (yuk, yuk), getting children into reading- especially with a hug from Hugless Dougless, brain gym -an item that occasions the throwing of pink wellies, creationism, an unintended and potentially damaging impact of the SEAL (Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning) programme, and a good report from the Sutton Trust on effective, or great, teaching.
The report is worth downloading, link here
