Publications

Resources that Rock is the comprehensive guide to evaluating existing resources and developing new ones. If you want engaged learners and to produce successful resources this publication is for you. The very popular Teaching Ideas sheet "Worksheets that Work" is based on this work and hints at the many areas Resources that Rock covers. Included is a 19 point checklist you can use to evaluate any resource including texts books, software and learning packages. When you consider how much time and money goes into developing or buying resources it makes sense to have a standard by which you can judge them as well as a guide in helping to produce trouble free ones of your own.

webassets/LQ_teacher.jpg
LQ is the concept I have developed to describe how learners interact and adapt to their learning environment. Once aware of how we can manage our learning environment to meet our learning needs we become less stressed and better learners. Teachers who are aware of this concept are better placed to understand student behaviour and manage learning more effectively.   I have now included a page explaining LQ and you can read more on my Blog at 4c3d.wordpress which has several articles discussing and outlining this concept in more detail. Well worth a visit!
