Good Teachers Talk: Better Teachers Listen | Class Teaching
The post is more interesting, to me, than the title.

> One way of achieving this identify shift is to come unprepared to a lesson! For example, working on a poem in English that neither the pupils nor the teacher have read before. In doing so, pupils begin to see that their identities can fluctuate from learner to contributor, thus giving them the confidence to enact this discourse themselves in the classroom and beyond.

Which speaks to vocalising your process. I do that (I hope) in writing, but not so much in reading.

Physical Computing With Scratch | Raspberry Pi Projects
>The version of Scratch included with the Raspberry Pi has a number of unique features; one of the most useful is its ability to communicate with the GPIO pins (General Purpose Input Output). These pins allow you to connect your Raspberry Pi to a range of devices, from lights and motors to buttons and sensors. The original Raspberry Pi had a 26-pin header and newer models (B+, Pi 2, Pi 3, etc) have a 40-pin header, but this workshop will work with any model.

I’ve generally failed with any raspberry pi stuff that involves extra hardware beyond a camera this might help.

Facebook’s Ad Scandal Isn’t a ‘Fail,’ It’s a Feature - The New York Times
People who use the platform to keep in touch with loved ones may forget that the site makes its money by serving as a conduit for whatever messages people with money want to push at us. You’ll rarely hear the company’s chief executive, Mark Zuckerberg, mention that when he offers lofty statements about how his company makes the world more open and connected and brings us closer together.

The Chinese Factory Workers Who Write Poems on Their Phones | Literary Hub
I swallowed an iron moon
they called it a screw

I swallowed industrial wastewater and unemployment forms
bent over machines, our youth died young

I swallowed labor, I swallowed poverty
swallowed pedestrian bridges, swallowed this rusted-out life

I can’t swallow any more
everything I’ve swallowed roils up in my throat

I spread across my country
a poem of shame

Excel Resources
Suffolkmaths Homepage

Enhancing the Teaching of Mathematics

These resources have been compiled as a result of a group of teachers getting together led by Charlie Dawson (HoD @ Northgate High)

Excel is a much under used resource and in particular it can be used for modelling a wide range of situations including statistical graphs, reflection, statistical experiments, sampling for coursework, investigating quadratics, simulating projectiles and number puzzles amongst many others. The following files are designed to inspire and to provide a starting point, they are a resource and not part of a lesson plan, how you use them is up to you. Some of the files require you to press the F9 key to generate new data.
