Get intae em! (Or into English, at least)

My Edinburgh Coffee Morning chum Tim Maguire has produced a fantastic video short based on Alistair Findlay's forthcoming book, 100 Favourite Scottish Football Poems. Tim's a pro, and it shows, but I reckon this is the kind of writing/filming/digital storytelling that more students should be given the opportunity to explore.

Update: He's done another stonker!

thanks Ewan

I think some of your edubloggers will recognise the fan featured in the clip above as a peripatetic music teacher from Fife - he did a great read!

It would be great to see some video responses to this from young students - the book comes out in mid-November but I'm sure the publishers, Luath would be open to approaches from teachers. If you're interested, please let me know.

Module Masterclass

Do you worry that your school or district could better harness its people, digital technology or physical space? Do you want some actionable inspiration, a mentor for a learning journey with your staff?

In a keynote or masterclass we can give them concrete ideas based on experience, enthusiasm fired by a vision of what can be, and backup before and after to make it happen for them.
