What is on Medium?


In this first post I have added links to short articles on Medium written in the past few months. The topics range across an introduction to High Possibility Classrooms, inquiry-based learning, teaching code in schools, history and geography in the primary curriculum, teaching kindergarten, cyber safety, the importance of teacher planning and the place of Anzac Day. I have used the Medium app which is terrific for self publishing – it’s great for quickly getting your work out there.
