Creating independent learners poster

The teaching and learning focus for this term at school is developing independent learning in lessons. Having been asked to take a leading role in this CPD for all staff, I began by summarising some tips and pointers for teachers in this Keynote presentation. Keynote is a great app and was highlighted recently by @ICTEvangelist and @87History on Twitter as an excellent presentation tool. This poster is to be presented in all classrooms at school as the first stage of developing awareness of developing independent learning. I hope it is of use to others.

Muhammad Ali quote posters

Last year, I created two Muhammad Ali quote posters for an assembly on revision for Year 11. After today’s sad news I thought it would be apposite to post them on here for anyone to print off and put up in their classroom. He was the greatest.


End of the Cold War event cards 

Made with the excellent Typorama app, these event cards are on the latter era of the Cold War. My students requested these for revision and can be used in a variety of ways –
Used for a visual timeline which students can annotate each card with details from their own knowledge.
Used as a revision card game, such as Guess Who, where students take it in turns to guess which event card the other is holding by asking a fixed number of questions that can only be answered with a ‘yes’ or a ‘no’.
Used as a domino set where students play dominoes with the event cards and when playing a card they have to explain where each card touches how the events link together.
Can be used as flash cards which students can add details of the events on the back of each relevant event card.
