Sorry I'm just catching up with Twitter now. I guess I'd argue that a tool is just a tool - but that there are many ways to use whiteboards to promote responsiveness. Sounds pernicketty, but like any tool they can be used well or badly: they key thing is what we use them to do.

This is brilliant! Cohesive, thoroughly well informed and full of thoughtful and practical ideas. I know you offered it generously accessible online but I couldn’t resist my own copy to highlight and bookmark.

I think it's helpful to be reminded that we can praise without causing improvement, and cause improvement without praising. In reality though, most teachers will be combining them - and even a smile can cause a student to feel greater pride. All well with me thank you!

I think the best ones come from within the school, and given you have a mix of subjects already I would just start with things from your own lesson. I either write my own or take them from blogs/papers - no one source, sorry.

I think Hattie and Timperley are right to point out that generic praise doesn't help and may harm: 'Well done', 'You're a clever student' etc. Praise could encourage repetition but I think there are enough valid concerns that it should come with a health warning.

This all sounds great to me. The one thing I'd want to ensure is that the presentation on the PD day giving more details has lots of examples from different subjects showing what this does/does not look like.
