Deal Or No Deal?
Steve Dembo has posted a really good question on Teach42: Your blog or your job? You Have 30 Seconds to decide. I like the question because of its simplicity, but also because it gets right to the heart of what it means to be a reflective practitioner.
On a purely practical level, I know that my job would have to come first (Paul needs his nappies!)… but I cannot imagine working without blogging! I think I am becoming a better teacher as a result of the reflective practices that blogging and reading other teacher’s blogs brings.
I’d be interested to hear what you have to say. Could you work in an environment that actively sought to stop you from posting your thoughts online?
