#UKEdChat Session 415 – Thursday 2nd August 2018
Spare a thought for the placeless, the displaced and marginalised who are moved on from place to place and never feel settled… the nomadic teachers with no classroom of their own. Whether a small department without a permanent base or a supply colleague who briefly inhabits the domain of the regular classroom teacher, teachers without a permanent classroom of their own have unique challenges, as well and things they can teacher educators who have a permanent base within their school.
In this session of #UKEdChat, we will discuss the challenges, advantages and opportunities for nomadic teachers and what they can teach the rest of us?
- Are you, or have you ever been, a nomadic teacher with no permanent classroom base of your own?
- How do you plan, or leave lesson plans for teachers who also use your classroom in your absence?
- What are the challenges of not having a permanent classroom and sharing with others?
- What are the must-have, fail-safe classroom resources or activities that you, as a nomadic teacher, can always fall back on if no guidance has been provided?
- What are the advantages of not having a permanent classroom or set of pupils, of your own?
- Is it important to you to have a designated space to work outside of the classroom, like your own staffroom desk?
- All-in-all, which is better – being a nomadic teacher, or having a position that is more permanent?
- Have digital tools changed the way you work and where you work, or how can they?
