What is School? Using Hooks to Induce Everyday Teaching Vitality

#whatisschool continues to grow and roar as one of the most powerful online professional learning sources. Every week we get more than 100 educators from over 10 countries around the world coming together to chat and learn about a variety of topics and every week I leave inspired and full of amazing information! This week we are lucky to be joined by Brian Host who is an inspiring and successful educator from Sydney, Australia.

Many teachers find the balance between work and life challenging. With the perception that the administration of teaching, programming, assessing, reporting, portfolios and interviews taking over our focus and time, what can we do? This week #whatisschool will look at ways we can tap resources and support in and beyond our education systems to enhance our teaching and personal vitality and focus.
