Official resources


There are a raft of officially sponsored sites of teacher, practitioner, education research and educational research. These are a few:

  • Dont want to loose this but not sure where to put it. Find Your Talent
  • TeacherNet A government sponsored site for accessing official publications. There are 'research bites' in the form of powerpoints which are a quick summary of presentations that can be used - e.g. P4C.
  • The National Strategies ditto
  • The General Teaching Council has some interesting ideas on learning communities, learning journeys etc. and research for teachers. I can see possibilities of new understandings emerging but they are tucked away inside traditional frameworks.
  • The National Teachers Research Panel run by the DCSF to 'provide resources for practitioners interested in undertaking research in their classrooms.'
  • Eurodyce  is an 'information network on education in Europe' by NFER.
  • Teacher Training Resource Bank 'provides access to the research & evidence base informing teacher education'. Has an e-librarian. Interesting idea
  • Research Informed Practice Site (TRIPS) DCSF standards site supported by the Innovation Unit.
  • NCSL online dialogues.
  • QCA what is creativity?
    QCA creative and critical thinking

    Developing a curriculum that supports creativity and critical thinking
    In order to develop young people’s creativity and critical thinking, they should have opportunities across the curriculum to:

      • use their imagination to explore possibilities
      • generate ideas, take risks and to learn from their mistakes
      • refine, modify and iteratively develop ideas and products
      • make connections between ideas
      • engage in creative activities in all subjects, exploring links between subjects and wider aspects of learning
      • work in relevant contexts, with real audience and purpose
      • work with a range of creative individuals, both in and out of the classroom
      • encounter the work of others, including theories, literature, art, design, inventions and discoveries, as sources of inspiration
      • discover and pursue particular interests and talents.
