Bad blogger!

Don’t be a bad blog teacher.

Things to avoid include: inappropriate controlling behaviour (telling, not asking): discounting, without consideration, the views of students; ignoring negative comments from others (the worst are those who delete comments to avoid dealing with it); disengagement from the subject “we have get through this”; blaming others, lack of time, skill etc. for not being Socially and Humanistically involved in their efforts. Ie treating it as “more work”.

If PD does not get past a surface level of understanding; all you get is a digital-facelift – resulting in bad pedagogy, which in turn reinforces past belief and behaviour, resulting in abandoning or discounting the value of the discussion, writing and plenary reflection.

That’s not the teacher or the blogs fault – it is more than likely a result of poor professional development design.
