Sir John Jones @SLF11

I was fortunate enough to spend yesterday at the Scottish Learning Festival 2011 yesterday. I had a great time, picking up ideas and inspiration from keynotes, seminars, education stands and through spending some time with some great people.

One of the highlights for me was the speech given by Sir John Jones. I had not heard of Sir John before I attended the keynote, but he came highly recommended by my headteacher. I found it to be a humorous and inspiring address. I hope I can carry some of the key ideas from it into my own practice.

Have a look and see what you think.

    I thought Sir John Jones was inspirational – he made me remember why I came into teaching. Sometimes we forget in the day to day ‘busyness’ It is not just a job it’s a privilege. If we are not making a difference to pupils’ lives why are we doing it?!
