How online learning can change your perspective and improve your teaching

Teachers are notorious for their work ethic and their inability to stop until everything is near perfect or they are asleep with exhaustion. Finding new and innovative ways to teach fractions to that lively Year 4 class or to ensure that the targets are met for reading for the struggling readers in Year 6 is every teacher's challenge.

Are we though all missing a trick by doing this and not always looking at the resources available to us from other teachers and companies on the web? As the saying goes, ‘Why reinvent the wheel?’ A question many of us may need to ask ourselves. This quest for personalised resource building could also apply to our own professional development.

Not knowing about or accessing the numerous online training opportunities could also be another trick missed and one that could help to increase your knowledge, refine your skills and allow you to grow as an educational practitioner.
