Teacher talk: the missing link « The Learning Spy

“Teachers absolutely must talk if students are actually going to learn anything worthwhile; the trick is to make that talk as efficient and instructive as possible.”
One of the things I really like about this blog entry by David Didau is how he has unpacked his meta-cognitive thinking over time. He is a teacher who tries new ideas, experiments, questions his own beliefs, thinks about what he is doing and what others say, and then creates a model for himself that he shares with us. And he does this on top of his teaching load! This is a perfect representation of someone in a developmental paradigm.
