On this page, I am grouping together interesting reading links on all sorts of subjects, mainly in the field of current educational thinking and new directions.
I love reading articles of this nature, keeping up with latest ideas and opinions. Since the arrival of a tablet in my life, I have actually increased my reading enormously because it is so easy and so handy. Sitting by the fire, with a lovely cup of tea and reading is a favourite pastime and less anti-social than before, when if I wanted to read “work-stuff”, I was up in my study on the computer. I hope you will enjoy reading these articles from other people’s blogs.
