coisas da educação... por inglaterra, uma miscelânea.... via the guardian...!

Teacher Email Header New Branding

I recently became an aunty for the first time. I don’t usually think of myself as a big tech person, but since I first set eyes on the baby I’ve done nothing but pap him with my phone.

So I have some empathy with the parents working in Silicon Valley who choose a “no tech education” for their children. This week Matthew Jenkin explores this, looking at other schools shunning screens and smartphones in favour of back-to-basics schooling. Before your IWB crashes in horror check it out.

Elsewhere, we have an incredibly moving Secret Teacher. Even though they’re a brilliant teacher, they dare not tell anyone that they have borderline personality disorder because of the stigma attached to the condition.

But as the pressures of the job grow, it’s getting harder to hide. It’s a brave and moving insight into what it’s like to have a mental health problem. If you do nothing else this weekend, please do give it a read.

And finally, we're having a think about how we use Facebook. Check out our page and email us if you have any thoughts.
