I’m hugely excited to be a guest host for the next #EduBookChatUK a real favourite of mine on Twitter. One of the privileges is to offer up some suggestions for which book we should discuss. I’m suggesting four options that you will be able to vote on using the link near the bottom. I also give a brief reason for each suggestion.
The prices quoted for each book is the Amazon price, accurate at time of writing.
Teaching: Notes From The Front Line by Debra Kidd (£12.99) This one has been hugely controversial and could lead to some powerful discussions on the purpose of education.
Learning Futures by Keri Facer (£24.99) This one came recommended by @dan_brinton and explores what we are preparing students for and how to prepare them for this future.
The Beautiful Risk of Education by Gert Biesta (£20.99) Exploring the issues with risk aversion in education and how we should be embracing risk instead.
Creating Outstanding Classrooms by Oliver (£24.99) An investigation into developing whole school models of teaching and learning.
(Or at least that’s what I’ve heard; I haven’t read these which is why I’ve suggested them for the chat.)
The book chat will be at 8PM GMT on the 08/07/15 and I hope to see a lot of you there.
Voting has now closed: our chosen title is “Building Outstanding Classrooms” by Knight & Benson.
