World Wide Inspiration

Inspiration comes from many sources; one of the most valuable, abundant and accessible sources for classrooms today is the Internet. Here you will find links to great art, great writing, great thinkers, great ideas and fantastic opportunities for research into all imaginable topics.  Take advantage of this opportunity and let your students fly around the world.

Maths 
GOSSIP

People who are good at maths are interested in it.
They care about it, and they want to do it.
Mathematicians 'gossip', or chat
about numbers,
and this is how their interest in things mathematical develops,
our students can begin to develop
this interest
in just the same way.

The Secrets of 
SUCCESS

Creative Arts
The web is the most splendid of resources for art imaginable. It is possible to view full colour examples of almost any artwork.
An artist's work is in fact a great place to start an art lesson. Discussing a painting will focus students' attention on specific techniques of art enhancing their own creations?
What paintings should you choose??? What Videos? Which Artists??

Great Graphic 
DESIGN

GREAT Design needs focus and clarity of purpose.
Every design element, every graphic, all copy, every color and every texture has been considered and is included only if it serves a purpose.
OrigInal images and enticing graphics are crucial to delivering a unique experience that is successful.
THE PROCESS
Great design starts with understanding, ask lots of questions:
What are you trying to say?
What are the goals of the design?
Who will be the audience?
What are the desired outcomes?
What is the final format? (Web, Print)

The Internet has revolutionised our world, it allows unprecedented communication and interaction, individuals can communicate directly with scientists, mathematicians, doctors, writers and Prime Ministers.
The Internet has revolutionised our world.
How can it revolutionise our schools?

Evaluate 
IT?

How well am I learning?
What are my strengths and weaknesses?
What do I really know?
How am I progressing?
Am I learning enough? How do I evaluate my work?
Students need to find out the answers to these questions.
They need to have confidence in their ability to evaluate their own work, take charge of their own learning
to become empowered,
motivated,
successful learners.
