Re-post: I would like to ask for your help.
As part of my dissertation project, I'm aiming to collect a large research sample to help construct a validated measure on Teacher Attitudes towards Multilingualism.
If you are a teacher (primary, secondary, tertiary education), and you teach multilingual students, could I please ask for 10 minutes of your time?
The survey is available here:
Please boost—thank you so much!

To my lovely #wikipedia editors and fellow #womeninstem, a humble request to flesh out this list and add organisational pages. It is essential to connect us to share resources and for resilience. Happy to add others, too, if someone needs help or does not know how.

Just your regular inoculation against the hype of the educational snake-oil salespeople, who have profit as their goal, not #education.
I'm interested in design for learning -- things like page design, classroom design, and even design of the delivery. Unfortunately, resources I can find are focused on online learning.
Where can I learn about learning design for face-to-face classroom settings? @edutooters
This just dropped into my mailbox
Thanks to Adam Grant (and Larry Cuban for reposting).
To fairly judge student learning is tricky. And even trickier if you set a time limit testing…
Any @edutooters wanting to get a quick, solid grounding, this might be a robust starting point.
I shall be working through the nuances of split-attention and redundancy for a while!
@edutooters So my new school has 3 reporting periods every 8 weeks! Yr 7+8 grades only and P+T interviews week 4-5, year 9 written reports week 7, year 10,11,12 grade reports in week 7 and 11+13 P+T evening in week 8. Cycle rotates every 8 weeks so all groups get a written report. What the actual F.... Anyone else got a crap cycle?
Whenever I explain my #research at Google into mobile text editing, I'm usually met with blank stares or a slightly hostile "Everyone can edit text on their phones, right? What's the problem?"
Text editing on mobile isn't ok. It's actually much worse than you think, an invisible problem no one appreciates. I wrote this post so you can understand why it's so important.
I’m really struggling with where I want to be socially in the post-Twitter eduverse.
Obviously any question asked directly on a platform will be biased toward people ON that platform, but still I want to know: where are you finding engaged teachers these days?
