10 commandments I try to live up to

  1. Recognise and acknowledge your influences
    In my case the most significant being Seymour Papert, whose philosophy is summed up in his Big 8 Ideas.
  2. Digital can empower learners and their learning
    In my case it’s about generating and testing ideas to provide connected opportunities.
  3. Education should be about providing equal opportunity
    Anything I do could be done in any school
  4. If of learning value all students should have opportunity to benefit
    It should not be just about the teacher as such ideas will wither.
    We can evaluate by how long ideas endure when instigator departs.
  5. Good Teachers are Good Learners
    Teachers need to be lifelong learners who lead by example
  6. Education should empower learners to go further
    Need to ask: what can you make with that learning
  7. Education is a Journey
    Like Plato’s Cave, Education is a search for a holy grail
  8. Educators Empower, Teachers Delivers
    Good Education is connected, empowering and self-improving
  9. Educators should question
    From Socrates we know critical thinkers improve education
  10. Learning is Personal, Education reflects Society, School is a Community
    And the interplay is complex. But School is critical to societal and community health.
