Regardless of the type of course or workshop I am running, there are some essential things I always have with me. This is what I refer to as my teacher toolkit.
- Coloured pens
- Post – it notes
- Resources for games – straws, lego, playing cards, juggling scarves, dice
Also, there’s some great online resources for teaching and learning:
www.memrise.com Courses on a whole range of topics, using memory techniques to help you remember what you learn. You can even create your own courses!
www.freerice.com Encouraging fun learning, playing games to check knowledge. For each answer you get right, they donate 10 grains of rice through the World Food Programme.
