I'd just advise you to look at how far you have come already and how much you have learned on that journey. There will be no greater accomplishment than when you hold the thesis in your hand with your name on it. Your research could change the lives of many in ways u never expect

I came across a lovely paper at weekend on 'interlacing'. Put simply this is when you give tasks that require the students to use a different strategy each time. I would have loved this paper a few years and it was thanks to Twitter and teachers here that I found it.

I do think that everyone reading this or interested should look at and at least create an account and log in and have a look. We all have different interests and you never know what you might stumble upon.

Would it be fair to say that it also responds to fears? Will my children be ready for the future? Will the world that I know be completely different for them and I should turn to these theories for security?

To go back to original tweet. I think the teacher will always welcome research that helps with T and L . This is something that we are developing and need more of in the Irish context. Don't let International work dictate, establish our own findings!

I had Multiple Intelligences when I was completing my H Dip in college. It was asked about in interviews at the time. Learning styles came later (at least to me) and seemed more popular. I still hear mention of learning styles but no more of Multiple Intelligences.

Another argument is that it takes time for new specifications to embed and that you should give TEN years for them to really come to fruition. Very often everyone that was concerned initially has moved on or the next new initiative is on its way.
