I’m a science teacher in the UK, East or West Midlands depending on who you ask. I blog discreetly – rather than secretly – because it gives me the freedom to say what I want without it affecting my classroom role. If my students have managed to track me down to this blog, and actually read this far, they probably deserve a BTec in ICT.
I’m also a husband, a father, a geek*, a reader, a writer, a climber, a walker and lots more besides. Just like a real person, in fact. (Don’t tell the students!)
I use this blog to collect together and share my ideas about teaching in general, and science education in particular. I’m also passionate about problems with science communication, especially bad science, in the media. Some posts are about ideas, some include the resources I’ve produced; I probably average about six a month. I’m currently working on CSciTeach accreditation and my CPD portfolio will shortly be linked to the blog, from GoogleDocs. We’ll see how that works out… Please feel free to pinch anything that interests you and use it how you like – as long as you don’t sell it. I’m gradually adding Creative Commons Licences to the resources but in general, like everything else on the web, it’s here to be used. The only payment I would appreciate is a comment on how it worked for you.
In fact I’d really appreciate any and all feedback you have. I’d love for you to comment on the relevant posts or pages, but you could also email me at email@example.com or reach me on Twitter where I’m @teachingofsci.
