As the bell goes: Audio reflections

How might you and your colleagues use this material?

In many ways this is a question that we are hoping that you will answer for us! This is such a novel resource that we don’t have any pre-conceived ideas of how they might be useful.

However, we are convinced that listening to fellow teachers talking about their practice and their insights will be of great interest and is bound to spark off useful debates and initiate many experiments and activities in classrooms.

Here are a few ideas:
  • Listen to a clip on your own and post your personal reflection. Agree, disagree, debate the underlying issues, whatever you want – this is the spirit behind all of the NCETM communities. As professionals we all have the right to make up our own minds and to argue things through with our peers.
  • Tell your own stories and offer your own anecdotes. A key element of professional development is to have the opportunity to articulate your own practice and beliefs to others (and often to oneself for the first time).
  • Use the clip as a stimulus for a staff meeting, department meeting or other network meeting. Debate the issues it raises for you and maybe post a joint response or related comment that arises from your discussion in an NCETM community.
  • Either individually or as a group, make a commitment to try something new in your own practice that has been prompted by a remark made in an audio reflection.
  • If you have access to a digital recorder make your own audio reflection and send in for inclusion in the resources below.

Do let us know how you have used this resource. We can add it to the above list.
