Louise Robinson-Lay‘s insight:

Invisible learning. This links to Sugata Mitra’s ideas that I have been looking at lately.

i do, however, take some issue with the idea of ‘serendipity’ in learning. It leaves too much to chance, we do not need gaps in skills when we are educating young people.

Becoming Invisible In My Classroom

Louise Robinson-Lay‘s insight:

Less visible teachers put student learning ahead of their own voices. The worst classrooms I have seen and the worst classes I have taught have been dominated by teacher talk with little room for student learning. The best I have seen have been places where the teacher seamlessly works around the room at point of need allowing students to discover things for themselves and guiding when they need it. We have expertise in the skills and knowledge of our subject areas, not just the content.
