  1. Just listened to this episode while studying tonight (TER #085 – 1to1 Laptops in Science with Simon Crook – 5 Feb 2017).
    During the summer semester in January, the GU pre-service cohort did an assignment on “CURRENT ISSUES IN SECONDARY SCHOOLING” I chose teacher retention & called it “From Burning Passion, To Burning Out; What’s happening to our new teachers?”
    It was very satisfying to hear you re-iterate many of the topics I presented in my assignment. It’s such a relief to have confirmation I am on the right track.
    Thanks for a great local resource.
    Reyn Adsett, future Physics/Maths teacher.
