Teach 100

A Daily Ranking of Education Blogs

Top Ten

#159: Mr G Online

I’m Mark Gleeson. 2012 marks my 25th year as a Primary School teacher. Over those years I’ve been a self proclaimed Maths guru/tutor, ICT leader, Music Teacher, singer/songwriter, PE Co-ordinator ( my high school PE teachers would laugh at that one) and led PD in ICT both locally and system-wide. I’ve spent most of my career teaching in the 5/6 level while also tutoring secondary school students in Maths.

This is my first attempt at blogging. I want to write about iPads in schools ( a crowded blogosphere there) from real world experience. I want to share how Web tools can change education. I want to write what I believe ( not what I’m expected to believe ), hopefully by thinking before I post. I want to get our students inspired to write by blogging themselves so they can see writing has a real purpose beyond file books and NAPLAN assessments! I want to inspire and encourage my own colleagues ( and hopefully others outside my school ) to take a chance and think outside the comfort zone of the 20th Century where I began my life as a teacher.
