The valley where I live

I am a teacher of Sociology, Psychology and PSHE living near Bath in the UK. I love music and sport and support Aston Villa and Bath Rugby.

I have just started my MA in Education, Technology and Society and am going to use this blog to record my thoughts and progress.

I hope to engage with teachers, learners, techies and anybody else interested in how technology can be used to develop learning and communities.

I will probably blog about the subjects I teach too.

I may also have an occasional rant.

    Enjoying the blog, Yog!

    Now awaiting the next post, plenty to discuss at the moment with Education.

    Hope you are all well, I’m sure we will catch up soon.

      Thanks for reading and commenting Julian.

      How are you all?
      How is being a dad and a teacher?

      If you’re on twitter I’m @yogspiers and there are lots of great educators involved.

      Lots of love to Rachel and you all!
      Let’s try and catch up over christmas or new year.

    Hello Yog, being a dad and a teacher is great, leaves little time for anything else!

    We didn’t manage to catch up, but we should soon.

    I wanted some advice as the head of dept post has come up in my dept and I’m going to apply! There are a few other teachers also going to apply. I wanted to know what you think makes a great head of dept, and I guess you may have some thoughts on this!

    If its easier I can call one evening, let me have a number to get hold of you on.

    Applications have to be in end of Feb!

    Enjoy the snow, Villa not doing to bad recently, are they going to slip up with the Geordies this afternoon???

      That sounds wicked mate and I’m happy to have a chat about it – maybe some time over half term?

      I wrote a bit on the ITE page on this blog for another friend on the same issue – have a look and let me know if you have any other questions.

      Give my love to the family and lets not talk about Villa.

      Maybe a catch up at Easter!?
      Speak soon
