Disclaimer: I would not recommend David Didau as a speaker, he completely failed to engage the audience and spoke for too long. Lessons to be learned!
Last Thursday saw our fourth annual TeachMeet at Durrington High School. As always, it was a fantastic evening. A great demonstration of the appetite of teachers for sharing and collaboration – exactly what teachmeets should be about.
The evening got off to a great start with David Didau. David asked us to challenge our assumptions about teaching and learning – something that he is very good at. He discussed the fact that many of the things that actually make a difference to learning are counter-intuitive – so need us to think about and change our own practice. He unpicked the difference between learning and performance, the need for desireable difficulties and what we can do about it. His presentation can be downloaded here.
