The Guardian

History is likely to record that Britain's teachers were better prepared for Covid-19 than government ministers. With cases rising in Europe, 14 schools in England had already closed their gates by the end of February 2020. When senior staff at Barham primary school began drawing up contingency plans on 26 February, they realised they needed to up their use of digital technology. They decided to upload work daily to ClassDojo, a popular app they were already using to communicate with parents. The problem was some parents, many of whom do not speak English as a first language, didn't have the app.

Love them or hate them, smartphones have become an integral part of our daily lives. But should they be left outside the classroom? Nick Gibb, the minister for school standards in England, told the BBC he believes schools should ban their pupils from bringing in smartphones.

Peter Freeth, whose daughters are aged 13 and 18 years old, says schools should do more to integrate phones into the learning experience.

Daily Mail - Science & tech

Teachers who love their subject take time to talk to pupils and make jokes get better results, according to new research. Sharing experiences and even admitting mistakes also improves results. Known as having an'authentic' style, young people prefer this to a more modern'inauthentic' approach - where teachers treat their profession as'just' a job. Researchers Zac Johnson of California State University and Sara LaBelle of Chapman University asked 300 college students about their experiences with the different teaching styles. They found that authentic teachers achieved higher levels of learning and deeper understanding.


Praising pupils rather than punishing them can improve focus by up to 30 per cent, study claims

Daily Mail - Science & tech

Praising pupils for their efforts in the classroom -- rather than punishing their bad behaviour -- can improve focus by up to 30 per cent, a study in US schools found. Experts monitored over 2,536 students in the US over a three-year period to see how attentive they were in relation to the ratio of praise and reprimands teachers gave. With student focus linked their ultimate grades, getting teachers to spend more time praising their pupils in class could help to booster learning, the team conclude. Psychologist Paul Caldarella of the Brigham Young University and colleagues spent three years monitoring 151 classes with a total of 2,536 students from 19 elementary schools across the US states of Missouri, Tennessee and Utah. Pupils taking part in the study ranged from 5–12 years of age -- or, in other words, from kindergarten to sixth grade.
