That clarity was not bad so we talked about maybe we can become college professors or maybe not engineering college professors. That was largely a dreams. One thing for sure bet.

The Ariel School Alien Sighting
"Today's story is so bizarre and so hard to rationalize the only way to make sense of it is to go through it piece by piece from the very beginning it centers around the aerial school a private primary school in the small farming community of rua about twenty miles outside of zimbabwe's capital of harare. The students range from as young as five the way up to age twelve. I don't know what the school is like. Nowadays but back in nineteen ninety four. The kids would run around the playground every morning for their recess break. Friday september sixteenth was no exception. It's almost the weekend. The kids are excited as they're running around the playground. Meanwhile inside the building teachers convene for a staff meeting while they're gone. It's basically understood that the older children will keep an eye on the younger ones and not far from the playground is a ticshop which is basically like this little deli or canteen that serves students mothers rotate through managing. And the momma duty. This morning is allison kirkman. Now allison's minding the shop when shortly after ten a m. A student named luke runs in. And he's looking like he has seen an actual ghost. He has this sort of wide eyed stunned expression on his face. Ben luke tells. Allison he's just seen a literal alien outside now. Alison here's this and brushes it off. I mean she basically tells loop scherf very funny. Quit pulling my leg. But luke keeps insisting that he saw quote a little man in a one piece suit with a band around his head end quote ultimately alison isn't convinced enough to leave the tuck shop investigate even though her own daughter. Fi fi is out on the playground to in fact fi fi and her friends or just as stunned as lucas. Apparently the students were out running around when they noticed this thing hovering in the distance beyond the edge of the playground.

David S. Reynolds on Abraham Lincoln
"Our guest. Today is dr david. S reynolds historian who has written extensively on the civil war era. He's won numerous awards including the bancroft prize. And the ambassador book award just to name a few. And he is the author of the book. Abe abraham lincoln in his times professor reynolds. Thank you for being on our show. Great to be here richard. Thank you great. So much is made about president. Lincoln's lack of experience and his many supposed- professional failures prior to winning the presidency. But you seem to push back against this narrative. So what's the real story here. yeah One of the best books on him david. Donald to lincoln one of the better known books actually says very frankly that no president has ever entered the highest office being the least prepare less prepared than than lincoln that is the least prepared ball and on the surface kind of looks that way because he had less than one year of education just primary school education and Thou that was it and He didn't go through any formal formal of self education. Either but what i found is that he had something far more important. A insatiably curious. If he were on the law circuit around illinois he would go to a farmer and say. How does that machine work. And what brand of cow is that and and the pig over there. What can you describe that to me. Very very curious about the world around him And also he loved to read poetry in particular newspaper small so poetry and poetry kind of organized his thoughts and he memorized shakespeare by the page. She didn't do it to impress people but Suddenly suddenly would come out with a shakespearean soliloquy though is on his hard disk his brain and Or burns poem or something like that. So he was a really exposed to different levels of culture so much so that his contemporary emerson said There's one hero who stands out from the rest as somebody who bridges the entire range of experience from the very highest shakespeare of the opera. And all of that to the lowest. He like body humor and grotesque Frontier humor and emerson said he went down as far so the the very dogs believed in him so In a way who's very very open to experience and is that lincoln that i'm really interested in the songs he loved the poems he loved and what really made him a what what was going on inside of him right and you talk about. Lincoln's ran as an era of sensationalism. Violence susannah humor surreal the surreal in the bizarre which i think for anyone that follows politics now is a bit comforting to know that it's it's been like this for a while. So can you expand on just what you meant by that. Well i think there's been interesting sensationalism for a long time in many cultures but the difference was that because of changes in print printing techniques and also distribution techniques. Suddenly this was available to the masses and so the newspapers they used to be used to six hundred suddenly were once the penny papers and they were filled with sensational stories about murders and suicides and oh adultery and all all all this stuff and so yeah. I mean Linking grew up in this kind of culture. Also in popular humor lincoln said it was characterized by grotesque nece and it was a very violent kind of humor of gouging and and scrapping and scraping and a often feature these kind of frontier types. That were just wild men and people get a lotta thrills out of these kind of very very wild escapades in the crockett manuscripts the davy crockett manuscripts almond accents. Helper and p.t barnum. Who was a sensation. He was founded show business and wasn't in the circus business back then but he was in the museum business and he put on sensational displays like a fiji mermaid. Who is this beautiful blonde. Half naked woman had presented that way in in the posters. But actually it was just a a monkey's torso tied to a salmon's tail assistant in some water. And anyway the biggest. The smallest the fattest put things on display so in a way Lincoln had to serve accommodate culture as well because he was sold as as abe. That's book is called the kind of rough frontiers men with his sleeves rolled up and he's wielding an axe in these splitting the rails and by the time that It was advertised that way. It had been many years since. He's splitting rails because he was a respectable lawyer by the time war. Good suits and all of that and it was making a good income but he allowed himself to be sold as a even though he hated the name but he said without names like old. Abe uncle abe Honesty i wouldn't have been elected. I would not have been elected. So he was sort of put on display almost in a barnum barnum like way in eighteen sixty.
Can we build 15-minute cities where we live?
"I'm jordan heath rawlings. This is the big story. Alex zekovic is a staff columnist and the architecture critic at the global mail. Hello alex hey jordan. Why don't we start. I was gonna say with a simple definition. But but maybe it's not that simple. But what is the fifteen minutes city. Where does the concept come from. And what does it describe. So the idea is actually an old idea It goes back at least fifty years in the world of city planning and really it hearkens back to previous models of cities built before the car and the basic idea. Is that everything you need for. Daily living is within walking distance of your home so the idea is not a new one. The rhetoric or the phrase of fifteen minutes city was popularized by the mayor of paris. Over the last few years. I need. I'll go Because she is interested in pursuing the fifteen minutes city returning peres into as much as possible. A fifteen minute city so. This is kind of a familiar idea. That has fresh relevance today. How do you define it for analysis purposes. When you're looking to see whether a certain city or neighborhood would qualify so there are a bunch of different definitions of the term and the one that paris uses actually includes workplaces or generally tries to include workplaces with other things. If you include workplaces this becomes a little bit trickier because trying to find to link up. Everyone's home and everyone's workplace in a large city is very complex. The more familiar and lord sort of less controversial definition is that you have the necessities of daily living within walking distance of home for the article. I did for the global mail with some colleagues a little while ago. We used a measurement called amenity density developed by statistics canada and see 'em each see and that defines it as having a grocery store a pharmacy and a public transit stop within one kilometer and having a daycare a primary school and a library within one and a half kilometers. And then there's a larger circle for health facility and larger circle for places of employment. So you know the least the most straightforward way is to say you know. Pick up a prescription go shopping. Be able to catch a bus or train. You should be able to do all of this things within roughly a ten minute walk of where you are. Why is that set up so desirable. I'm sorry if that sounds like an obvious question but just you know what does it impact. Well yeah i mean it is. It sounds really straightforward. Because when we think of our cultural ideas of what a city is or how people should live. I mean you. Think of sesame street It seems easy but the fact is that most people in north america don't have that at all. I mean the large majority of people in canada as is also true in the united states live in what planners will call car oriented suburbs or car-oriented places. If you have that then you know you. Effectively are limited to being able to survive comfortably to having a car. If you don't have a car to available to do those basic things you know your life becomes much more complex you effectively become a second class citizen and this is obviously -cations for youth and teenagers. It has obvious implications for anyone with disabilities And and there's a strong overlap of course between people with disabilities and seniors but You know this is a very large in growing issue for many canadians. Many north americans. Who are egypt in places where they need to have cars and may not always be able to
Radiation used to treat benign conditions up to the 1960s has led to illness and death
"Element because it does not have as it should. This is a sideshow today. We have news about space weather. That may make the prospect of life in some of those earth like planets unlikely tale about trees. And how we couldn't wait to get rid of them and boy in iraq who amid the bombing and terror was inspired by omni to become a doctor but he wants more is madame curie which for i find it easier to observe talking. I measure uranium and i discover less radiations than i do in. It's all the always more powerful than the element exactly the same test six times. I get identical results. My instinct is that there is another element that skewing the results. You think you've found an undiscovered element. If you're laughing at me then i'm not laughing at you as exciting pinprick of radium gathered from four tons of pitchman. The most beautiful thing you've ever seen smash beautiful thing. I've ever see from the film radioactive now showing marie curie who won lasting fame and an early death her dedication and here doctor says he is not from the university of technology. Sydney reflects on some personal implications of that story as a young teenager going through a pile of old family photos with my mother. I came across a photo of myself as a small child. Cute murad the photo showed me wearing a close fitting skullcap buttoned under the chin. An old fashioned bathing cup. When i ask my mother about it. She told me she'd made matching cups for all my clothes because lost some here after some medical treatment will actually she conceded when pressed are gone bold and stayed bald for a long time. Wash nothing to worry about. I was assured. So i didn't not thin anyway. Mom was off hand about it. I'd had skin problems. She said moore richardson. I suspect to talk about the problem rather than the treatment itself. The skin problem was ringworm of the scalp. A common enough childhood complaint but it could be nasty and like headlights in primary schools. Today it was a sort of thing. Scrupulous parents weren't happy to own up to win the ring. Mom didn't clear up. The local doctor's advice was to travel from our country town to sydney for treatment in a special facility at a big city hospital. Mom was vague about the details of the treatment. What she recalled from the sessions. While is that they'd rub some kind of cream on my head and then they'd turn a ray on it for a while. This was done several times. She couldn't exactly remember how many but by the time the treatments were finished. My head was completely bald at the time. I didn't push for more. It couldn't have been a major matter if mama so inclined to dismiss it. And i hadn't really thought about it over the years or at least not until recently many decades later when i was diagnosed with stage three muscle invasive cancer of the bladder and in the ensuing panic we began to rummage around in the family. History for possible reasons. Why no history. Nothing obvious but then the image of my small bald self came to mind by a strange coincidence not long before i'd heard an interview on abc. We've pulitzer prize winner. Deborah balloon about her book. The poisonous handbook achieve lee shocking. Mix of science toxicology history and to crime the book tells her poisoning motors tended to be perfect crimes in the early twentieth century until detective work in chemistry and toxicology established forensic science as a tool in the arsenal of the crime. Stoppers of the day among the poisons detailed in bloom's book along with us nick cyanide mercury carbon monoxide and thallium. I was surprised to find a lengthy section about radium. Deborah blum's droll reference to the early enthusiasm for radium stuck in my mind and so did a story. My specialist told me during a pre surgery briefing about the british town of huddersfield. In industrial west yorkshire. Many hundreds of factory workers in the area had died of cancer of the bladder in the twentieth century as a direct result of long term exposure to various toxic chemicals and dyes. I learned later. That warnings had been ignored by both industry and government and research findings suppressed
African Girls Access Avenue to achieve aspirations and rights: UN deputy chief
"Empowering goals in africa can put them on the fast track to achieve their aspirations and basic rights to which they're entitled but too often denied that's according to the un secretary general muhammad. Who's on a two week. Solidirity visit to west africa and the suhel to underscore the united nations support for the region during the ongoing covid nineteen pandemic in a wide ranging interview with the un mission. Maneuvres radio network mikado fm. The deputy u n chief discussed the importance of education. As a foundation to advancing gender equality. Josefina began by asking what the best way forward was for empowering women and girls first of all we have to understand that what we actually doing is providing an avenue for them to achieve their aspirations and basic rights so sometimes when one talks about empowerment is trying to give something no. You're trying to ensure that you open up that space that they acquired rights and education is one of them It's a building block There'll be many of the things that will come to empower a woman But a girl needs to be in school. She needs the foundations She needs the basic elements of education whether their civic the language the math the science everything that helps such stop. churning her brain her aspirations her dreams and connecting them with this this possible that can communicate it so it's really important that that education happens because it opens up the mind to the possibilities. Is it a matter of coffee. Increases confidence it. it You you understand. Better your place in society you'll rights Even if someone else's translating them differently if they're harmful practices in your coaching you begin to understand if that's harmful and that it's not okay And so. I think it's a it's a place that you learn about society about your individual responsibility so for every right. There's an obligation. It's not just about taking it's also not giving And so there's a lot that goes into education about learning your history It's it's a. It's a life long experience education but those building blocks in the beginning of very important for nurturing the mind into region. How do you see d education. Where are the needs. You know for me. Every time someone asks me that question. I remember that. I was educated in the suhel On primary school was as it should be that we had all the basic amenities including a school feeding With nutritious food but it was a place of learning on. It is the skills that i took on and i built a secondary education. Is those skills that allow me to do the things that i do today which is to get a job but better than that. If i don't get a job. I couldn't look around me and i can create the opportunities and i can look for the skill set but i need to move further with it. What does that mean case like. Go to school. I come out to the degree. And i'm looking for a job and i can't find one but because i have the wherewithal i can decide that i will take a job at not train for I can decide that. Perhaps i'm going to set up a soap making factory but because i have an education i can look for the business plan because i can read. I can light. And i've been taught math and science. I can put all of that together and make my business. Education is not just the job. it's the tools it gives you to create To create the work around you More recently i was in a camp With the internally displaced people from from boko haram and we had a group of women Will and girls And i said to them. So what would you prefer an educational skill set and this. Both because with the education comes. Knowledge with the skill set comes in ability to create An and that was very interesting for me and the young girl said they wanted to western education. The older women said we wanted an islamic education but both wanted skills because that's to them was the connection with the light hood. It was a connection with an income. It was in connection with that economic empowerment. That for them so important. For their family
"primary school" Discussed on Mr Barton Maths Podcast
"A brilliant project where she Collected data from six different countries in the world And what we look to add so she tested out three thousand primary school children and Primary school students and their teachers In china england new zealand south korea turkey in the us What we know about the equal sign is how much it plays. A vital role in children's learning of performing n equations solving and So far the focus has been primarily on arithmetic practice. That is being given to the children. So because it's only it's only been so far you know. A. plus b. equals something so the equal sign has been using an operational manner It kind of fosters this view wrong with you for the children. Only understand the equal sign is in they have an operational conception of it. The see do something Whereas what we want them is to refine their definitions of the equal. Sign and have more of a relational conception of the cosign which is that reflects the interchangeability of the sides rights So in emma's peach. St would publication still in the pipeline. Now it showing. How across the world. The best predictor of children's Equation solving was actually. The teacher's knowledge of the students. relational understand relational strategies. So it kind of highlighted. The big part that tilt teaches knowledge plays rather than just us focusing on on the textbooks on on under the individual. The child not the text. Don't play a role sorry it's not that you know but everything plays a role in teaches. Knowledge is big apart internationala. What did you mean i wrote. Did you say teaches knowledge. If it was it relational strategies did you say teaches. A knowledge of their students relational strategy. So when and how. They use relational strategies in there equation. Solving what's relational strategies again. Forgive my ignorance. oh That's a good question. So whether they really understand this relational conception rather compared to using the operational conception when they're solving equations. I see i see it again. Fascinates me listen. I this is something. I have not paid enough attention to just equal signing general. This is why. I just wanted to bring it up when when you mentioned it. It's the. I'm very casual with my yousef sign. I think for of my students. Equal sign is a signal that something needs to be solved be worked out and so on but the other thing i. I'm terrible outs. While i'm hoping i'm getting a bit. Better is is the distinction to equal sign in the equality. Sign so i i would the identity sign. Sorry so i would. If there was a a bracket for example to be expanded associate site to outside the brackets and the next plus three in the rocket. I would always put equals after that expecting students to know that that meant okay. We need to expand the practice. It's not equals. I won't into show me the thing that it's identical to so there's a real danger. Isn't that just casual with these signs. And it's it's kind of the classic curse of knowledge we. We know we know what we what we wanted to me but a less really careful with it can be confusing for students. Potentially what would that be fan. Yes absolutely yes. And that's exactly what this research showed that. This is an international problem. It's not just within the uk And we need to kind of raise awareness of of of expanding teachers understanding of the shooting strategies that they're using when they see the sign and promotes this relational conception of cosign obsolete fascinating. And what another thing. I just like to talk to you about. Tyrod felt so k. Would be an so when a calling foster sent me three some notes on each of each of the ten guests that are going to take part in this series. I'm always looking through the you'll notes and following phone. Some the links on came across some. You're interested in the executive function and in particular with regard to math. Now this is terrible. I then hudson. Google what executive function was right. Because i is one of those terms. I'm aware of. But i've certainly never used there so they'd have used it correctly and wanting trust me about this is that working memory. Seems to be an important part of this but it seems to be a bit above and beyond working memory now working on something we often discuss on this podcast weather talking about and cognitive load come to overload or whether the links to long term memory and so on but i'm always fascinated because and can we all also gas on who say no this this far to to thinking formal to learning than than working memory thus far too narrow a definition fall to our remodel. So i wonder. I'm could you just me a little bit about an executive fokin and in particular. You're interested in how it relates to to mathematics. Learn yes Well you you mentioned a lot of things. No sorry from surrey. So i've primarily focused on working memory to be fair working memories kind of apart of executive functions as from Children when they're young you. You don't really focus on executive functions yet because they're not all developed executive functions. The bigger umbrella. The kind of considered the separate components of attention inhibition updating etc. An all acc as you can imagine just me saying those terms you can imagine are all vital for mathematics and understanding how a particular executive functions play a role in particular when. You're doing a particular arithmetic task. Where mathematic task can reveal the cognitive processing that takes place when you're doing such a task for example In one of my studies we be talked before about the ns the approximate number system. And how things blew up since that came about so one of the tasks that we use that we're used to assess the s was the so called non symbolic approximate arithmetic task. and the ns assume to be an automatic innate system. Right so if you take that as a given then of course working memory should not play a role when you're performing such tasks so we we did a study where we looked at whether the causal mechanisms whether working memory indeed played a role. Join when you do announcing. Bollock approximate arithmetic task at the age of five and we found that indeed. You do need your working memory. So children were updating Their information the information in their working memory and therefore this particular specific task is not you know as automatic or it does need It necessitates no make domain general capacities. Yeah so. I'm not sure which. I will one thing. I'd love you to go deep from their ira. This is always fascinated. How on earth measure things like. How did he know that shoots using working memory verses that it's automatic so I love this question. So i'm going to try to explain now one of my favorite.

It's really important that we create a forum for those voices to come through. Yes. We've got a curriculum to live to deliver but you know, the magic happens in the classroom that ephemeral stuff happens wage when we allow a bit of a tangent and we allow our people to kind of bring a bit of themselves to to whatever it is that we're learning about. Anyway, that was a big long tangent, but it's hard with him. So maybe you went with it or maybe went and grabbed another cutter the time for tangents, isn't it?

Would you back in the day? That's a very good point. Yeah, so you'd always been a mess. I would always have been a mess. It's funny actually how those those habits die hard because I've got several, you know among students who I'm still in touch with not just from a chi capacity from when I was back in secondary school.

About two nieces over there in Toronto and then so my family here I've got a twelve year old girl named willow. And that's it. Excellent. Your twelve yard is just started year seven. Finishing. Because you've, you've got one on the way. Yes. I have just got a daughter in your six and we just had like the zoom. Deputy head. Of School and so we are just entering the kind of whole mine change. Our Periods come. Online David. It's really. Out of biggest the yeah I am too bracing myself because all the whole thing like she's been fairly hippie south London local primary school. Uniforms and all sorts of serious. Big. Thing. How's your first year being I mean it's been weird obviously and yes in a cupboard but. I have to say I'm one of the lucky parents in that. If she was a younger, I would have had to be dealing with homeschooling in an active way what I mean six actually the curriculum in your six is very hard for them. Obviously, it's straightforward because led up to it but if you're going to ask I mean I can't even do kind of long division. Wants me to help with something and I'm like. Well this is how I did today in nineteen. Seventy. Spending. Here's a calculator. By hand. And then it would have had to be way more hands on. Whereas the seven will I have found? It could just be a terrible ma'am. I do admit that. It could just be because I'm a very bad person but I basically done nothing. That sounds Dreamy I've done nothing. She's been in her room.

If you tips for the transition surviving the transition well I think I had to make sure I didn't get. Involved or helicopter around her social life because for me when I realized, it was that the most important thing is that socially she feels anchored. Yeah. All this concern about. This class that class her grades teaching did it, and actually at that stage is entirely secondary. It's about her making friends because that's the only thing for my daughter that she was concerned about. Her nerves came from. Will I make any friends because you didn't know anybody at hunters to to you know what I mean. And so I got on board with her to just focus on that and not be don't talk about. Other stuff. Parents would that we would get on the kiss in a twist about. The sleepless night. Yeah it's my business. So she'd be like, Oh, I want make Koshi. Will up he? Didn't. Give, confidence in the of the first day meeting and she went to school in the first week with a stinking cold. So she was a bit kind of glassy-eyed anyway she's patient zero. I think. It's nice.

"This is difficult but we have been surprised at how well people should be able to use the. Ucla snap to Deacon abroad in the reins of learning experiences and so ensuring that they as well as that structure and seeing the teacher in having those sorts of lessons each day they have the opportunity to More independent and so if I can explain what's was available tatum. Being less or cautious in in doing than we would normally be when when we had the kids at school got it and you get a sense John F. How you students of finding the experience and in particular is there any difference between the age groups? You'll the first primary teacher? We've spoken to on this series. I'm particularly interested if you find like younger. Students are finding and any difference. You're older students yet so I think it's a really good question I think. Let's Confu really confusing. For trump younger primary students say the feedback that we've had some parents be ready really positive. They've been very grateful that we have provides the of these lessons because they told us that That structure and not routine is really important for the kids and that they were worried that they wouldn't have thought so with with children They can they can sort of sit them down that give them breakfast and then at nine o'clock do do some exercise together with Jerry. Wixom HUNTER THEM. And then say it's time to do your mass now The you sit down and watch your teachers video if you haven't finding a tricky on how coming in but that's your next hour now so and it just gives that day that same pattern embry teen. I think it's a bit confusing for the kids because Gemini when you're when you're five or six you're like when I'm at school. I'm doing work when it's play time. And so that's sort of like school seeping into the life. In that way. I think is probably like a bit more confusing for our. Our younger children are second older. Primary children have again. We've got so many great videos phase one things we've done for staff morale is we just have like a Google slides document whenever we get like a coup video or picture from a kid whether doing some working something funny at home we just put on there. You can just going to have kids at home doing great work. We've got four kids still insisting on year three children assisting wearing the school uniform every day this this day and so are older Jordan have adopted Really really well too. I think. Poor advice because it's their teacher on the screen and it's the book they were reading book. They were studying before they before they left. It was the same sort of math unit that they were doing before they laughed. And that they're pretty savvy with technology so said that hasn't been to ensure problem I think that year eleven has probably the most tricky in terms of like motivating year eleven to continue with its curriculum work. Like how how? Tough for them right. A toddler working towards she sees is somebody being whipped out from underneath them. Have no idea. So what starting next year in September. So getting them to solve like motivates the year eleven to log on every day and complete these sorts of tasks when they know that. There's no end goal and of course we can say into a blue in the face. This is great prep for your twelve. You'll behind if you don't do this. It's worth learning just for its own sake but when I think about myself so sixty listening to this but when I think about myself sixteen I think I would try to really hose told Jesus is consoled and my math teacher how we're GonNa continue completing the textbook because it's fun than I think I'd find really hard so motivate myself and the truth is we have very little leverage like this. There's not really anything that we can do if they if they just choose not to. Which means that we're having to focus on incentives and praise and motivating factors which I guess is another interesting another interesting difference for all of us as teachers. We can have big today around behavior and discipline and we as a school we saw like I think quite often get criticized by those who sort of like the no excuses. They people they say. Oh your woman. Fussy to will the relationship work yet. We have to come on site counseling For the kids all the time and we use first names and they think royalty warm and fuzzy and then there's the Believes Restorative Justice sale use? Took off? Not like your your too strict surveys. But this has been a useful exercise in well actually most of the most stick so elements of your of your behavior management strategies being removed. You've been you've been stripped the Strip to the stick. And and so. How do you motivate kids when they were It's quite difficult to offer a of like a consequence not doing at one not doing it to a standard and B. Not Tons of sort of like obvious a positive sort of like incentives the obsolete fascinating this. John and as I say this is for me. We're GONNA WE'RE GONNA have to get you back onto today deeper into some of you you've routines and processes and stuff that you have in place in the school and but just bring this this compensation to an end just just three. Quit reflections from you again. Feel free to be as brief or his death. Eligible icon these people are taking these all different kinds of ways so my first question is is there anything at all about distance teaching or remote learning or whatever label on to put on it that you actually prefer to in the classroom teaching so yes. The short answer is yes. One thing is I feel like I've had a lot more time to think hard about curriculum to think hard about sort of like a reflecting on the peoples like going to be doing that extra time so I think I'm probably working about five hours a day. I think our teachers probably about about the same property waking about saying and we had a discussion as ness lt of like. So if that's what we think what we think about that and we basically decided like that that feels like the sweet spot. That feels about right. I guess we could say like you're contracted to to work this many hours. So let's fill those extra hours that you're not working for over. What would be the point in doing? I think generating that sort of work for work doesn't feel like it would be a positive step in my of goodwill and for me the extra time. It's just been really really helpful because I just I just feel like I'm going to think about what I'm doing. Much greater level of depth. I quite enjoyed that. I think the one thing I enjoy is that so much. Accountability is being taken away. The I feel like I can speak out about my subject a bit more. So designing of Lake Pre year twelve course was just tons of fun because I could without my book of like Philosophical four experiments. And say this. We've never time to talk about this lessons. Walkout me passionate about the subjects in the first place. It's the reason I went onto to university and now I can spend an hour talking about it because because discernible bet you often and in the sense of the accountability and say that area of having that level of flexibility. I have really enjoyed. And I feel like a hypocrite saying this because I've I've sort been quite very outspoken about how I think that having accountability measures like sensible and in growing up professional. And the satsify fine and we we should have sats. And it's it's okay just like have curricular scrutinized a and so I'm just GonNa I'm just GonNa often no defense myself. Being a hypocrite is lovely to be able to just shut it so yeah. I think that's that's the thing that I've enjoyed. The spontaneous thickened and kind of following on from that. Do you think this experience will change classroom teaching in any way John? I saw about the Fortunately I think I do. I am ready step curve of the idea that like this is going to the mentally change. Everything I think that the next twelve to eighteen months. You're going to be a bit shaken. A bit weird The we have this problem obviously of year. Eleven next year I studied A fraction of the TC quotient space to same with kids. Other than that. I don't I don't I thank the whistle. Negative start like flipping all classrooms. I think think that teaches sort of clashing. Practice is going to change massively I think that schools will settle back into a similar routine to think about six months ago. Schools will look pretty much like that in about six months. Maybe improve wrong. I think that it's really ready. Ready hard to shift like people's habits and coaches and stretches once especially once a sober accountability measures. That have now come back in. I think I think the classrooms Very very similar to what they've always looked like fascinated fascinated and final question. John AMAC and you've already drop loads of a good piece of advice and nuggets throughout this. I wonder if there's any way kind of to summarize or pick out one or two key pieces of advice or tips if the teacher listen who find themselves in this situation or what have you learned and say one thing one thing that happens. Is The community work during We we currently making four hundred meals. Each day for for our families run free school meals but we'll save for other members of the wider community on members. Committee outlive people. We have parents coming in that delivery service but parents come and pick those up on Mondays and Thursdays so they have all of the food variable and I think that speaks to like in terms of if there's a piece of advice now is now with the Times like the human just human beings I and be a teacher second Just be kind to people. be we saw every conversation with staff members parents people's with is there anything. I can do to help like walk me do support because this is a really difficult time. Same people And now is not the time to be a behind heavy handed time just to be a human being so the anti Oliver that that's my piece of advice. Speaking behind is a lovely way to to an about SEPA. Well this has been an absolute pleasure as I say. I've been looking forward to speaking to you on the podcast in some form for a long time now and this. This is kind of wet my appetite for more. So thank you for giving up your time and also have thank you to you and.

"Writing expanded known for is their kind of knife. Ready be obnoxious. Maybe like Atari project where it can be and so if if they going for that then great. They've already dry humor there but probably the it's inappropriate and you need to see this to say it's not appropriate to describe nauseous obnoxious welcome to trying to use an ebay vocabulary and you don't get that so that can be quite so say literacy is a bit more difficult Similarly with science obviously requires specialist equipment. So I was science lead For primary has just created a video of science experiments. That kids can do around the home And then so of like added onto that. That's the theory behind. Say That kids a get the Happy to the practical. They have a chance to do the experiment. And then they But what they sometimes it solve left Atlanta. It's fun last. Like is a fun activity because really learn anything. And we'll get is okay. So this is what's going on a molecular level that driving this often. Let's say there's a whole bunch of activities could stood there in terms of science and a little bit of theory. Well in truth like regard drops we had to. We had to make peace with the fact that is going to drop here and and the US. That's the situation and that's okay constantly trying to say where. Where can we continue to live in new content? On where we can. We should and make sure it's decent quality and mature. Expectations are still high. In terms of the word the kids are doing in terms of both qualitative quantitative but not so of IBM are a bit too much. Because we're not the same level of regularly do normally in in the classroom got it got it final question digging into the practicalities of this. I'm one thing that's come to light throughout this series of podcast on record in his is different technologies that are being used for for kids and teachers to communicate with each other and I really like idea of using videos on Youtube Casino log in. It's easy to access from any device and so on I'm interested in the kind of almost jewel usas picked up on it. John Between Google classrooms and an emails. So I'm writing saying that on this eleven till twelve time when teaches or online and kids can be sending emails but they can also be chatting through Google classroom and also what's the what's the logic and this isn't menton in a bad way at all between and what's the logic behind asking kids to e mailing photos of work. This is using something like Google classrooms. Because I'm just thinking of a teacher props getting thirty miles with photos. Different orientations figure out who the frontier. All this kind of stuff. Him and it does email avenue drawbacks in in that sense. One hundred percent. That's the biggest problem. That's the biggest problem. We've come up against that. Was like way more for seats than we than we. Well we anticipate it was going to be fussy but the thing is. We had the decision that we made was. We can either make this difficult for teachers. We can make it difficult for children. Let's teachers because a submitting stuff through Google classroom requires a level of technological. Understanding is beyond some of our younger children and families and say then. Let's say that like ten percent of all primary find. Find that difficult The having to contact sixty families to talk to them about To discuss with them about how to ablation through Google classroom which is is not is not like massively must be difficult but if you are not comfortable with technology and with computers then it's it's probably a left of complication that is beyond being able to explain. I ever a phone so say that's the reason. Now he said I if kids want to upload through Google classroom they they can come and say we're starting to sort of like a loser. Pretty relaxed generally like whatever works? Va That's the thing you do. That's Jimmy View. That is the thing whatever works you find these days what you should do but for families so if they won't Abadie across from that comes with nothing that's fine an audible children in secondary so all of our children in the face to face four. They complete work. They tell you they added that drive on that phone and they uploaded to Google classroom. Nice and easy for them to do Beco our had teacher for the secondary phases made a quick video social and how to do that and explain some before they left. So we're confident that like if you're alive nor twelve. You're able to do that like yourself you can. You can understand how to do that if you're seven. You're not necessarily able to to do that whereas your parents can is straightforward is just taking threes and manning it to your teachers. It takes the families that he seconds today in the evening and so moves of stress for them. The reason we want every day is like there is an accountability thing here of ARC is doing work. One of the things that we don't want to do is so this period to massively widen the lots of people are worried about that. So what can we do to ensure that all kids access to the same source level of Curriculum? This is one of the ways. And so we. We won't have a sense of which kids all aren't doing the work so that way I can on during the work we can find out why if we can remove that obstacle possible by makes perfect sense. Fantastic so to summarize. John What would you say is working well out of out of this this experience so I I think that there are a few things have come out with this so first of all how much we love being in school and seeing our kids and everybody's chomping at the bit to get back and get back into classrooms. I think the what's what what is we have saved for kids. We've seen some of our children who struggle with independent tasks at school. We seen them really flourish and complete amazing work. That really crowd opened with like embarrassed. 'cause we're looking at each other and be like Oh God. They've been home for three days and they've completed piece of Ryan's Benton anything ever seen itself. But I think that all of that is is the very takings at the rain pace. And that's really courses to reflective along those kids who confined lessons like programmatic and can often sought by. Aktau in in response to that. We're seeing just the fact that will when they pause the video they're gonNA pause it for fifteen minutes instead of eight minutes but that's okay. That's the time they need to complete the task and they haven't got teacher being like you go eight minutes on the Board. You need to create more than go and that pressure than creating implosion for that kid of. I'm not going to do eight minutes and I'm not gonna I might as well just like give up on this complete. The it seems that being able to take their own pace a bit more is really benefiting those Children more replace learners. I think the second thing is it's helped our teachers ready. Focus on exposition and explanation and all of that sort of good stuff in in terms of what we've learned Kokusai in terms of like breaking things down so they can stick trim pots ensuring of autism. Giving kids like appropriate scaffolds. Say the They they have something like look back in terms of taking it. Step by step giving Britney good-quality worked examples. Refer to like. This is the bread and butter of distance teaching. But it's also the number of just good quality teaching more generally and so he so it's been a chance of reflect back on that so they're they're obviously we we want. We want to be in school. Want to have our kids and all classrooms again but it has been a chance for us to be able to focus on a few of those things fantastic and I really like trump on the positives in la La Superbug John. What's not working quite so well say I mean one of the things that bothers me about this is the day we try to mitigate it does feel like those. Those families and children with the with the least material means Are the Mercer by by this by this particular period and finding it most difficult to access what's available and I think ultimately going to come back from this lockdown The behind the those that have have is the means to sort of give every kid in that class every. Sorry every kid with loggins for the best evening clot forms and things and that I think that that's that's hard and some of these problems I could mention. But the like just giving kids don't goes annoy straightforwardly. Sold as retail hype. So I think that's really tough something people what's ahead from? We think all parents are really really hard. And when I mentioned like the gap there and these parents with more material means in a sense those kids like they obviously having advantage and there's obviously a level of privilege there in terms of like NAM to worry about that sort of book the those parents even almost African parents will that stuff finding this radio and finding that keeping a kid even with a set routine entertained and occupied a hours a day when they went used to doing is really trust for. I'm really difficult and if you'll find it distressing really difficult when you have so old material means you need than that's going to be obviously hugely More difficult if you don't have those and say that I think is is obviously not working. Well just just gentlemen and won't be to get school as quickly as possible absolutely and yet again. That's one thing that's coming through this real fear of widening the gap. It's it's a really tough one. John you mentioned that one thing that you've changed since she started doing this was the notion of putting appliances as kids. Could self mark during the lesson? Is there anything else that you've changed in in the couple of weeks of this has been going with our with our older students? Storms a bit more sort of Independent. So one of the things I'm doing is Preaching cost gene hunting a year and of course with our year eleven secondary students. They have a maths and English everyday and then two more lessons. Say that. That's a much sure Curriculum than they used to. But how four lessons complete and for your eleven. They do bridging curriculum. Say That would just be them getting ready for the subject taking in yet twelve because I teach and are available. Religious studies have just put together a six week. Curriculum of like welcome to philosophy and ethics. Welcome to the G. Harrison. The big concept. We're going to be covering it for year thirteen. The kids I was I thought I was pairing. And Hey level which. They'll never get to do now. Just in a pre university course for them Against of ICA twelve sessions or say on his is what you can expect university. We've we've tried to really give those people more independence and trying to navigate..

"That seems like a smart decision What was it not trying to cover what we would have covered in school against some schools to try and do that? And that's laudable We we what we've done is we've said this is what we were planning on on doing. In terms of content in terms of the sorts of knowledge goes through hoping to to teach children. What is possible? And let's not make perfectly detonated a good here if it's just not possible to them. Just throw it out and walk me out to make sure that the lessons are already achievable one of the things that we're ranch keynote to do is put additional stress onto onto families Is was already a stressful situation. So we actually think that giving nothing tool would be would be stressful for companies. And that's one of the reasons that we're offering daily lessons with the expectation that that people's complete the work in those in terms of curriculum. I'll give you an example in our primary vases for literacy what we normally do 'em in primary as we have an hour of reading in the morning and hour of reading instruction our writing instruction and they'll often be based on the same book so children will be Yeah threes at the moment. Studying a book called journey to joke and so they'll spend an hour reading that in focusing on one skill maybe something like inference and they'll spend a bit of time What the teacher modeling making inferences. And then in the writing session they might focus on retelling the retelling of the story For what we're doing with our nine lessons we've decided the just one literally less than a day makes more sense and said we just flip flop. One day we'll be a reading day next. There will be a writing day with our maths lessons. We usually have seven Paul lesson because we follow the Mass Masri Scheme. Seven partners feels like it would be a bit overwhelming and so we stripped down and and have so a keyboard modeling and then chance to pause it until of apply in practice that another keep mortally chance to pause and store over a practice that and just ticketed as those cheap goods and so we stripped basically. I just could you give us an example of something you've cut out. The decided just wasn't feasible in these conditions. John Oh okay yeah so anything that requires precious equipment like I said before we we. We send kids even with exercise books Before we close to quite lucky that we we anticipate the coaches and say a bit of time to put some put some things in place like checking whether kids have devices and things But one of one of the assumptions that we make is the Kids will only have a pet so and the excise but gave them because for some of the children that will be true. I'm one of also guiding principles is to pitch things towards those people's the curriculum will give the same in the same sort of way that we get you for a knowledge curriculum because our belief is that some of the kids if they get capital that's rich knowledge in the classroom. They went to the old And so we'll focus our curriculum that kit because they're the ones that are least likely to go on to get the grades that give them choice and opportunity Similarly some kids weren't have nice things are so we will change. We've changed soon Which was particularly to do with space in and measure because it required quite a lot of it requires specialist equipment that the the school literacy tasks similarly will give we'll give writing tasks that don't require like lots of precise feedback so I think that Yeah threes stuffed decided to take out a yellow unit on dialogue because to teach his dialogue. They make Ariza's on the punctuation and is quite difficult to you need to be solved like whizzing around kids with a heart. You've missed it. You missed you missed that. You've misled. Calmer and kids can quite find it quite hard to solve self check that work. So we're just taking each been having luck ends of imagining that kit perhaps We we have parents. We know we have parents who are doing incredible work on the front line maybe working nights and sleeping in the day and they said they weren't necessarily where have their parents available to help them. They weren't necessarily have rates equipment available to them. And so we have that kid in our mind when we saw planning lessons. Will they be able to do this lesson? Even though they're seven and they've just got back available. God love makes a Lotta sense as well alight principle and what she balanced then John Between live teaching and assigning work is it and we're going to talk in detail about about your videos and they live teaching or is that kind of watch it any time. Yes so then not life teaching. We're doing very little live teaching Say The reason for that is because we think this important of families have flexibility to watch the videos when it suits them So we know that we have families that preferred to do this work in the late afternoon or evening because that works that fits him with working patterns for them And so that's absolutely fine. We wouldn't we wouldn't dream of saying that parents must be done at nine o'clock when the timetable says nine o'clock They're also families where we have three or four siblings and they're sharing devices and so the recorded gives those families flexibility. The one kid can walk semis video and they can start doing their equations while the other kids then looks on what she's having video and they just flip flop around so we record the videos and we popped up onto youtube or loom and the kids can access them at China sort of appropriate for them. that's pretty much. There's a little bit of life teen idea of life teaching for our sixth woman who are older children the jeopardy it's accordion and put up a just at at nine o'clock with days will then accept it up so it gets access so now. I'm obsessed with the practicalities of this John. I mean sums of record in videos themselves. What kind of Casal? What kind of technologies are all your stuff using them so again? We Really Lucky. We perhaps pessimistically We predicted the school closures. Quite earn about two or three weeks before they went out. We start. Put some of these plans in place and so we we scrapped this EP. Two weeks before you start to train train teachers how to record videos so we use zoom and you cheap and Liu so our dislike different in primary and secondary here and say I'll start with primary imprimis teaches will do is. They will the zoo which lot millea with now and tell you prep meeting but just with them so this this bar that we constantly. We're quite comfortable with the fact that none of this is particularly pretty is working for us at the moment. So they'll they'll open up their personal meeting room just open a video and that obviously gives them just them on the screen so they can then give that will zoom Record your screen record the meeting. So they'll hit record and then that was a good morning. If I've how're you doing so bright sunny day today? They normally get some shout outs because lovely for the children to hit that he just saying. Oh Gosh did lovely piece of writing yesterday when you email in. It made my day beating that. It's nice to see that and to help them see that works. Still being acknowledged. Bet what will then do is then use zoom function of sharing screen to share that presentation or to share that visualizes usually one of those two things so we sent. What about teachers? Hey with a home on them on their desks if they're doing somewhat lengthy usually maths lessons tend to tend to use presentation a and visualize and writing lessons are usually a bit more. Visualize a of focused or Whiteboard fakest surgeon when you say presentation what do you like a powerpoint. Kind of annotated overpower planters. Is something different? Yes exactly so. It's usually the this over the slides that are provided by mastery. The activists spiral sliced divided by mass mustard Presentation that the teachers have made for a writing so an example that with mass will be. The teacher starts that presentation. Say hello everybody and then That share that screen and I'll say Yesterday converting fractions decimals into percentages. I just want to recap that skill. Say I'M GONNA put up on the screen. I want you to pause pause the screen and just practiced doing those to make sure they'll be caught off fingertips and they they showed that presentation ten therefore them and then the teacher will say the record auto. So they'll just say to the children pause the video now incomplete not now wait a second great good to have you back Let's go to the answers and you can take them if you got them cracks and the Dow just right using the Using this annotation tool them on zoomed. They'll just right the answers in So that kids can then see if they've gotten correct. I see this. This is fascinating this John. This is this is almost like a third way in between. You've got the like teaching at one end of the spectrum. You've got the just setting work whether it's off. Something like in Secondary Light hegarty maths docked Fra so something like that. This is almost kind of in the middle of that for me. We'd see it's taking the best elements of the live teaching because it's as Scott up personal torch to it but also it's got that flexibility built in that. The students don't have to be sat at their desks between nine and nine forty five. Or whenever it is. Was that kind of very much in the forefront of your mind when you were devising this that you wanted kind of the best of both worlds. Yeah I think say so we. I think one of the things we try to do is be ready flexible and and and and not think too much And we've got quite an adaptable adoptable model. But one of the things. I think that has helped. We think this has been quite successful. We've got pretty pretty high take-up so pretty close to a hundred percent of kids accessing and emailing and work every day And I think one of the things is. We made the decision quite early on. Keep clowns simple and dirt. Change the plan. Because it's really really tempting to go on twitter and go oh my gosh. Somebody's doing this but doing this. This is available. This is available and bombard parents and kids with the emails. Being you can do this you can do this. You do that and also a little bit ad hoc in a little bit confusing And so you one of the things that we think that was. The really important was kissing that teacher everyday kits from the same structure every day. That's like real predictability of I know when I log on. I will have three youtube links. Math slink an English link and a humanities or science link. That's my day Throughout today do those three videos plus exercise so we wanted to keep it really simple and that sort of response and then as you went three we realized who to begin with. We're doing a lot sort of like here Answers see if you can self mark but then we realized that's actually quite easy fix so our what we were doing when kids emailed work and our support staff was off. Mark Network in sending sending it back and that didn't feel like a really efficient so of like us time given that what we could do is just put down to up in the lesson and that was then add subsidies instructional value of seeing kids. Seeing a bit muddled serve. They did get it wrong. They can see why they go wrong. I see this absolutely fascinating. Us and again a few technical questions here about the kids log on in the morning to see links to the three videos were the logging onto John so use Google classroom. We already used Google classroom for old primary from year. Two Up We use that for our homework anyway. So kids pretty use to logging on And and and completing tasks from Corey What we've done now is. We've we've made youtube channel because we realized these videos May well be useful to school. Was the position these sorts of days. And so we've just plunked. We've made it. Youtube Channel That youtube channel with the different playlists for each year in subject. Save if you are a parent and you got a kid in year one and you don't have any switch to that kid at the moment because your schools made the decision. That's not something they they they think. provide Than you could still contract videos and the kids could have a mass video every day So I'll go into a classroom and they three links posted there but families could just go on Youtube Channel And find the find the days. The teachers were Dan advance so on Monday. Recording the video Tuesday and they'll they'll that though you schedule that say that it goes online. He's the next morning I see a couple more issues in terms of the of the practicalities. I should say by the way I'll call. Put a link to Youtube channel in the show so listeners can can check out those videos and you mentioned that part of your as kind of phone in.

"The podcast soap e and just to kick things off. We a little bit about yourself and you school please John. Yeah Hi Greg I'm John Hutchinson. I'm the assistant head teacher. In charge of curriculum and assessment rich. Cut Me Felton. All three school and we were one of the free school in the first free schools to setup So we set up in fell to in two thousand twelve and have children from two to eighteen. As if the last few years we've had children coming to our our whole school and I'm always in charge of the curriculum assessment third the the primary phases. We try not to use turbines primary and secondary we've tried to solve like delete them from our lexicon Because we think to get the value of all through school It's best to think about as one school I think is quite easy. Just have a primary secondly I happen to be located on the same on the same site but what we want to make sure that those children who are really well known by all of that teaches throughout the school and the curriculum was ready. Coherent rights right through the key stages and there wasn't sore the so of a cliff. I sometimes get from six to seven. So that's me. I don't think we have them all through schools up north are. I'm I might be missing missing things here and just in terms of the practicalities of John. Do I'll the other prime second-round separate sites separate buildings undo teaches teach cut across key stage two and three or would it very much be separate in terms of the actual teaching itself yet. Good question so I think that there's a range of approaches from All three schools that cates on different sites to School is that way to buildings but on on the same site with Witty lucky we had And building built for us and we said we have one big building that has all of our children one of the bats the Rebecca Kramer and at Vancouver. Who SAYS THE SCHOOL MADE? Was that smokes more yet. Groups for something was really important so we The founders went into the project with the idea that this was about serving community and especially about saving a community the FBI eaten letdown in lots of ways in the past and so we wanted to become a thought community and still feel like we are that community and so school year groups is really important and have sixty children in each year group and that's true from from reception by up to yes eighteen and a way we work is we have five floors which are five phases so reception wouldn't to a phase one three four five face to Yes six seven eight phase three so that sort of I guess wet traditionally secondary would start but we have all your six on that floor year. Nine eleven as the face for best fit frazzled. Yes yes twelve and thirteen a. They have the run of the top floor. And so that's that's That's one of our sixth formers. They're not talk door and with each with each phase. Go up things. Things are a little bit different. Kids get a few more responsibilities so so a few more privileges or should have a few more responsibility. Say they'll take they'll get blazer once they'd be both into into phase three for example and have a little bit more freedom but they have been more homework. Wow and Steve Irwin again. Forgive me this is stupid question but do the kids all stay in one room and the teachers move between classrooms and between floors or out of the the kids. Move Ed between classrooms. We so to begin with we tried to keep the kids in the same room for as much as possible Because we don't we don't really controversial speaking to you because we don't really believe in the setting streaming. I think that I think that. That's I. that's like say all equivocate here. Because I think that the compensation roster saying industry is never nuanced enough and I think the maths is a good example. Phonics is another good example. Where actually setting something? That's a good idea. Having said that we we have smaller groups and we believe that mixed ability teaching mixed attainment. Teaching is something that we won't have his powerball culture So so you. It means that we don't have to juggle classes around site much. I mean he said that we have recently moved teaches around a bit So teachers and children's twelve move around Sort of equal if kids beefing up six to assigned to science labs so you will try to keep in the same room but they will move about throughout the day. Got It now. There's a real danger hit. I've wanted to talk you on the show for ages and there's a danger that this could turn into one of my Mama Thelma. Pick three hour less what I'm GonNa do I'm GonNa. I'm GONNA be really a restrictive of myself and I'm not going to all the things I want to ask you about curriculum sequencing all that kind of thing that I've heard you talk about up and looking to see you reset chat and instead we're going to get you back on the show. You don't really get a choice about this kind of Well once you're on contracted info life. We'll get you on the show. Won't some schools returned back to to normal to talk more about that and what I want to focus on of course here is? Is this teaching from home. That we're all find ourselves in the position of trying to get our heads around the best way to do it and one of the main reasons I wanted you on was because obviously you've you've got this experience of a primary school and we were not a primary school teacher. I'm on this on this series. As of yet and with all the challenges that secondary schools secondary school students face I can only imagine. It's a whole new ballgame when it comes to the younger students so we live dive into all but just to start off with John. I'm interested in getting a sense of how you yourself a coping with this. I'm now recording us in the middle of the Easter holidays. So I want you to imagine that this is not in the holidays. It's kind of normal school day from teaching room. Home is normal and that can be. What does the structure of Your Day look like? When does it start? When does he finish Wendy? Do you kind of preparation. And how does it fit him with any family responsibilities? You might have So my day starts about I guess about I get about seven per seven which is just a huge treats into our off. I really loved my school on acne across across them than Satan is normally a couple of chips trained to to work. And so I'm I'm only about half US five setting off about Sex which has been schooled by after seven some getting into school at the same time but having an extra hour off that in the morning which delightful say so starts about Harper seven and we. We made the choice in phase one. I'M GONNA use. I'm going to use that term primary in primary. We made the decision to have a briefing every morning. Eight o'clock so what are the expectations is all teachers? Want to zoom briefing eight o'clock and so we all log in and we and we saw talk about some of the things that went very well yesterday What people have planned for today in any swap notices announcements and then we look off people. People go there. That's what jobs So to me that means is I've been put in charge of the online learning because my wife is pregnant at the moment so where will lock down. She's she's locked down to the long run. What's we when we saw closed then my senior teams or said? You're not gonNA come into school. You're just GonNa stay lockdown which means I'm running things remotely so from after the briefing will normally a is spend a bit of time Calling families who having some of problems with accessing. Mind stuff so it could be. The videos aren't working session. So of restriction or just having trouble so of a loading loading something so. I spend time. I'm calling facetime. These days families is sometimes but not all say the some sometimes but not always Most vulnerable families and say as well as sorting out some Geeky tech problems. It's just a good way to check in with those and have a little chart and start the day and hear about how that finding it so so I'll spend my sort of a morning doing so those sorts of problems about a them from about Mid Day or Matz won't be doing is watching. Some of our mazing videos are teachers of have in place. Say I will watch these videos and just drop messages to teaches offering them. How brilliant if there's anything which I think needs to be changed Than also just let them know that so that might sound a bit by doing. The doing lessons scrutiny by lessons but it could just be something like you've all these you set this task and it requires a director and we just calling us. Unit families have trapped. I give a different task for tomorrow. Can you make sure that? Can you just imagine that they were a piece of paper and Pencil and set tasks require those to fix? Just just to get the a bit of a niche for that and then I'll contact some teachers that we have contact tree so audubon teacher contacted every day and that's that's just chapman. That's just I like how you doing how you find a house being unlocked down. How's work going what you can participate or anything? We can do to help three thirty. We have what we call. Mindfulness meetings and this is optional teaches. But it's especially what attended by our parents so we'll go to a tweet thirty. We'll we'll get on. And that's a website like bookending the day and sources say how is today? What was what was really difficult. Has Anybody else found that sort of thing difficult? What people doing tonight? Good Series on Netflix. They're watching that. We can watch. Thanks so much for your word today. de off your laptops in danger inhales until tomorrow morning now and not just sort of like jokes transition from day to the routine is really important for children but routine is really important for to start as well So that's pretty much what my day looks like? And he's will fat spat. It's minute spare minutes. I'll spend writing curriculum booklets or Speaking to to the sorts of scores about we'll see if there's anything that will help folks we we believe in being this of Outward facing as possible. Think that same job here for the same Elkins get the best possible -education account men say as much as possible. We try to show today fascinating. John Obviously going to dive deep into into the videos on what they look like. I love the idea of the that. Mindfulness session at the end of the day. Which is which is optional. It's not something that the teachers are tied to. But a good way of bringing things together and shutting down for the day that seems seems super smart idea and structure. It is fascinating throughout this series structure and routine has been something.
