When I present at sessions I like to make sure that I include as many ideas from as many sources as possible. After all, although I have my ideas, there are lots of people out there with lots more (and invariably far better) ideas as well. One of the people I often end up mentioning is Neil Jones, a SSAT Lead Practitioner working in South East London. Now, to put it bluntly, Neil is an inspiration. His resources are of the highest, highest quality. His ideas are so simple yet so effective, but crucially it was Neil who really got me thinking a few years ago about the nature of the content that we teach. His work completely changed the way I think about language teaching, about the need for cognitive challenge and beyond that the need for pupils to learn more than just language. As such, it was with great delight that I agreed to present at his Lead Practitioner seminar day which will take place at Barclays Capital, Canary Wharf on Friday 3rd December. I'll be presenting on using ICT to enhance the re-envisioning of topic and theme work which is somethintg I'm really looking forward to. Anyway, if you're in London or anywhere nearby then I can guarantee you a really thought-provoking day so please, please come along!
