Biggest. Lie. Ever.
One of my all-time favourite FMLs.
GPOY as substitute teacher. Except I’m not allowed to throw it back. :P
Biggest lie ever.
I think this is the test before that test
For provincial tests, they cram and cram and practice and practice the thing that’s gonna be tested for weeks. It’s totally stupid to waste that time where they could have learned something else.

This blog is to contain all my thoughts, reflections and musings of the Australian education system. As well as teaching methods, ideas etc. etc. Basically this has come about to stop cluttering my personal blog (found here) up with education based posts, most of which my followers have no interest in reading.
I encourage all contact and feel free to contact me for discussion, questions, advice you may want to share etc.
A little about me. I am a twenty-year old Queensland University of Technology student who is in my third year of full time study and lives in Queensland, Australia. I have always been passionate about education and knew I wanted to teach from an early age. At the beginning of 2011 I left the small mining town I grew up in to live in Brisbane to pursue my studies. I currently live in a North Brisbane with two other ladies who do not understand my love of children’s books nor my need to purchase them when I am not yet a proper teacher and have no real use for them. I also work as a nanny three days a week for three lovely girls.
I like the idea of the string with all the referentials hanging from it. Don’t think fire code here allows it though… those fireman have their own laws.
New research methods reveal that babies and young children learn by rationally testing hypotheses, analyzing statistics and doing experiments much as scientists do
Very young children’s learning and thinking is strikingly similar to much learning and thinking in science, according to Alison Gopnik, professor of psychology and affiliate professor of philosophy at the University of California, Berkeley. Gopnik’s findings are described in the Sept 28 issue of the journal Science. She spoke about her work in a video briefing with NSF.
Of course, it’s said that little kids have Ph.D.s in manipulating their parents. ;)
