Why Teaching Never Leaves You – World Teachers’ Day

Why Teaching Never Leaves You – World Teachers’ Day
Wednesday October 5 marks World Teacher’s Day, a very special occasion celebrated in more than 100 countries worldwide. Having come to ClickView from teaching I can attest to what an extraordinary job teaching is and I can also vouch for the extraordinary work that teachers do every day. Reflecting on my own time teaching I find myself thinking that the most rewarding parts of being in the classroom weren’t when those overly ambitious lesson plans actually worked (a rare occurrence), or when students did particularly well on an assessment or project, rewarding though these moments were.…

Using Precise Formative Assessment to Identify Student Needs

Using Precise Formative Assessment to Identify Student Needs

Brexit: Its Causes, Its Consequences

Brexit: Its Causes, Its Consequences
On the 24th of June citizens of the United Kingdom awoke to the news that their world had changed dramatically. In just 12 hours the relationship between the UK and the European Union, already splintering, had cracked and broken apart. A landmark referendum held last Thursday found that 52% of the 30 million voters who participated wanted the UK to leave the European Union. The gravity of this decision revealed itself immediately: Prime Minister Cameron resigned, the Labour Party has begun to fall apart, the Pound lost 11% of its value (the lowest it’s been…
