G'day Graham - I gave my mid-2010 MBP a new lease of life a few years back with a SSD replacing the optical drive and a RAM upgrade - worked a treat. Earlier this year I succumbed and bought a new 15 inch MBP with Touch Bar - very costly, but love it. Using multiple apps and iCloud services through iPhone, iPad and MBP. Cheers, P

At this time of the year when teachers are preparing for summer break, I think this article is a great way for them to self-reflect to determine if their classroom setup was the most conducive for learning. I have used the traditional desks and chairs organized in a u shaped. Luckily, I was gifted small sofas and bean bags for students to use as well during instruction. Of course I had to set up parameters for that arrangement. The most poignant part of the article was the realization of the "arrangement, not the type of furniture, that made all the difference to the kid’s disposition in my class". I will definitely share this article with my colleagues. Thank you!

Thanks for your kind words, Julie. I will definitely keep in touch as our education system has a funny knack of people running into each other all the time - sometimes former colleagues end up as colleagues again in a new setting! I will continue to read and comment on your blog and some of your day to day colleagues could consider one of their own. And if I do a lousy job at PNPS, I may be back!

I think we are the lucky ones Graham. The ones that have been lucky enough to work with you, be mentored by you and be nudged by you to take risks in our learning and share our learning journey. I wish you all the very best for your new role, you will be greatly missed. Make sure you stay in touch!

Good post Graham. I think that the argument about the formation of furniture goes both ways in that buying the most agile and flexible furniture does not give you the mindset. You might be interested in checking out the Design and Play podcast as Steve Brophy and Dean Pearman dive into the dilemma of learning spaces.

Comment on When Twitter Leaves Me Cold by mslteachesbio

Graham, I am new to Twitter and honestly have been "off" social media for 3 years now. I am currently in a teacher pre-service program at UM and was encouraged to create a Twitter account for professional purposes such as connecting with fellow educators for inspiration/lessons/activity ideas and as a tool to communicate with students and parents/guardians. I was hesitant to join for the exact reasons you point out here. I find myself to be quite resourceful when it comes to searching the internet, and I worry by joining Twitter, I will simply become overwhelmed or disinterested due to a lack of "meaningful substance". I also struggle with what I could share to fellow educators - the internet is so jam-packed with ideas from anyone and everyone, I feel that sharing more can just clutter an already chaotic mess. How do you efficiently determine the more effective and quality lesson between my photosynthesis lab ideas and the other several thousand that are already out there?
