From Surface to Deep Professional Development #TMNRocks | The Learning Geek

The following post was inspired by #TMNRocks and the sessions of @headguruteacher Tom Sherrington, @HuntingEnglish Alex Quigley and @geogphil Dr Phil Wood. Thank you for three awesome sessions; the learning from each workshop together with the day as a whole somehow led my thinking here:

In a world driven by data, teachers need to remember that they are not just a number and neither are the pupils they teach. We are not teaching students one year at a time in order to pass a test, turn a spread sheet green and move on to the next cohort. We have in our classrooms the future citizens of our country. With great responsibility should not come dismay over workload or despair over time (although it inevitably does in the current climate); with great responsibility should come a deep longing for self-improvement and a search for eventual mastery over our vocation.
