Kids from 17 Countries Send a Message

As educators, we have an amazing ability to connect our kids globally and allow them to see each other, not as strangers to be afraid of, but as other kids much like ourselves…with families, and video games, and favorite books, and hope and fears.  142 more words

Extrinsic Rewards Feel EPIC!

It took me until I was 18 and in university to realise that I had to ask if I didn’t know what someone was talking about so I have grown to not feel ashamed to ask ‘stupid’ questions or admit that I am ignorant on a topic.   387 more words

My Twitter friend and colleague @gazneedle got here first - but I want to add my thoughts on his post: Friendly Neighbourhood Teacher - Extrinsic Rewards Feel EPIC! [caption id="attachment_317" align="aligncenter" width="329" class=" "]www.huffingtonpost.com www.huffingtonpost.com[/caption]


I created that phrase and if I am honest, I am really quite pleased with it! It pops up now as a known #hashtag when I type it in. I did that. As I have said before, back in April I didn't 'get' Twitter, what it was, what it did, how it worked, none of it. Now here I am, in September, nominated by my peers on Twitter via @Ukedchat as one of the Top 100 UK educators on the Social Media platform. How bonkers is that?! Now, I am a realist. In the big picture, it doesn't mean a lot, but to me it is a really special moment. People who I don't know, think what I have to say is useful and they like it enough to say something about it. I didn't even know there were nominations or I would have made some! So, like Gaz, I saw the notification on my Twitter feed and saw some friends getting excited: @gazneedle, @redgierob, @grahamandre, @bryngoodman so I followed it back to this tweet: https://twitter.com/gazneedle/status/508296924659974145 And there we all were sitting proudly on #Ukedchat Magazine's pages. You get a badge and everything! I was quick to add it to my page, because I want to see it! I told my wife who smiled and said "Well done!" (She doesn't do social media and thinks I am wasting time!) I now have a badge, and a link and I feel incredibly proud. I have just over 700 followers and think, like Gaz, if this is how a 36 year old man feels, about being told he can share a little gif file, how important is it that we reward the children we teach? We all, as human beings, like to be made to feel special, valued or important. It is why headteachers walk into classrooms and make a positive comment - it makes us more productive people. It isn't about the big things, it's the little comments that make them proud, send them home with a smile or make their parents realise that their little person has done something special - those things count. I feel rather like the jolly geezer in my opening animation - I suspect that I might be overselling it, but I feel good and I want people to know that! To whoever voted for me - thank you, that minute spent has made me a very happy tweeter. Maybe there is something to this Twitter thing - I think it might just catch on!
