It’s 8pm. Time for #ukedchat with @ICTmagic – ‘Your reaction to the draft National Curriculum for England.’ Thought I’d begin by looking at the outgoing curriculum. Does it need replacing? #ukedchat What parts of the outgoing curriculum would you like to keep in the new curriculum? #ukedchat @ICTEvangelist Or http://t.co/ao2vSkbBEc also works great on all devices.

@ICTmagic id also keep the skills and values sections #ukedchat #ukedchat history NC is unmanageable, esp at KS2. I'm passionate about hist, but don't think I can do justice to so big a range. @WithoutMotive It should be a disciplinary matter ;-) #ukedchat #ukedchat loving focus on whole texts & challenge for all in English. RT @ukedchat: Feel that the last government missed a great opportunity by not implementing Rose and/or Cambridge Review? #ukedchat @ChrisRaynerd @MisterGBrown True. But is it necessary in other areas? English is pretty muh the same English it was 15 years ago. #ukedchat RT @DebbieHolley1: #Ukedchat read about what happened when Michael Gove visited a school in 2009 before he took office - debatehttp://wp ... @Teachric Why?

@HelenCaldwel computing stuff looks good. Thanks #ukedchat #UKedchat I'll sum up my views on the Science NC draft - dull & setting it back 50 years, all interesting & new stuff is kicked out! @fod3 @lizzie_h18 I agree. why do you think there is this gap at KS1&2? #ukedchat @WithoutMotive Very true, and a poor reflection on the "profession"! #ukedchat @ukedchat @WithoutMotive wish people would quit slamming #PowerPoint just a tool. One that's good for #infographics & #animation #ukedchat RT @ukedchat: Feel that the last government missed a great opportunity by not implementing Rose and/or Cambridge Review? #ukedchat @Laura_Suths #ukedchat Definitely. I love this too. The breadth of study implicitly suggests the need for a three year KS4 curriculum. @ICTmagic @chrisraynerd @mistergbrown potentially bringing back good. New focus on spoken language. Not sure about that... #ukedchat I don't think it's all bad; it's just that the bad bits are so awful they outweigh the positives by far! #ukedchat @ICTmagic Agree old ICT curriculum very dated. #ukedchat My thoughts on the The New History Curriculum Part 1 http://t.co/cfCOZJj7ZR #ukedchat @primary_science It is all a bit daunting! #ukedchat @primary_science There is a lot to fit in but it is also very narrow minded when you look at the world today #ukedchat @michaelt1979 The positives being...? #ukedchat @ICTmagic @primary_science too much (banal) content too little time #ukedchat @eslweb @ukedchat I wouldn't say I was slamming PowerPoint. As @ezzy_moon pointed out, maybe it's how it's taught. #ukedchat @fod3 yes it's going to make better Y7&8 teachers out of us I think with much more productive Y9 #ukedchat RT @deepexperience1: #UKedchat I'll sum up my views on the Science NC draft - dull & setting it back 50

RT @jj__loves__jj: #ukedchat You cannot care about school history and support draft curriculum for history. There is no need to implement anyway. Just convert to a free school or academy, then you can do your own thing! Hidden agenda? #ukedchat @thought_weavers #ukedchat My experience is that most schools now have a good creative curriculum in place. Too many changes in recent years Worth a 2nd tweet: RT @carlgomb: #Elearning seems a weirder & weirder term. Like ‘Car-Driving’ or ‘FoodEating’ #Edchat #ipaded #ukedchat If we stop primary history at the Stuart's there will be a hell of a lot of resources lying around in primary classrooms #ukedchat @ukedchat Agree! New stuff looks tricky, but I like a challenge. #ukedchat @tmeeky #ukedchat very frustrating that facts are so high priority. Why not just teach pupils to use google and teach themselves @lizzie_h18 They are at school. Should they not be taught full time? @fod3 #ukedchat Yes, agree with fod3 that the focus on whole texts is a joy! Actually, much positive about Reading elements. #ukedchat #ukedchat Design Technology curriculum at best completely inappropriate...? How can we as a developed nation not consider future generations @primary_science I think a permission slip is in order! #ukedchat #ukedchat my concern as a teacher is what is the burden of change especially for primary colleagues without support/ CPD @ICTmagic @lizzie_h18 to support other learning before becoming discreet in KS3. #ukedchat Yes, agree with @fod3 that the focus on whole texts is a joy! Actually, much positive about Reading elements. #ukedchat @eslweb Many thanks. Never seen the PPT Prezi or heard of TimeToast. #ukedchat #history isn't my subject, but liked starting with family history, then town (local) history, then national and finally inter. #ukedchat

I think there is always room to interpret in ways best for own cohort... be a bit braver #UkEdChat RT @thought_weavers: @Animate2Educate #ukedchat totally agree, hence a new nc not required - focus should be on pedagogy not content Just noticed Evolution at KS2 replacing Microorganisms by the looks of things. Not much scope for AT1 #ukedchat #ukedchat What about the new resources schools must invest in? Plus the piles of obsolete ones. Any extra funds Mr Gove? #ukedchat @aknill totally agree. Just confuses and stresses staff, especially those new to profession. Will see more teachers quit. #ukedchat The main issue for me is that many many teachers (including me) are going to need masses of CPD to cope with the new curriculum #ukedchat @lizzie_h18 @ICTmagic and research has proven the impact of speaking on written work. #ukedchat RT @Teachric: The beauty of the new curriculum is that it leave a lot for subject leaders to interpret #ukedchat #ukedchat who is going to support and train staff to meet new requirements and once agreed as an NC how much time will be left? Have you got a teaching interview coming up? Here's the BEST two simple tips you could possibly wish for... http://t.co/MlSOpVAEeN #ukedchat @fod3 totally doable with active Shakespeare methods. Get reacquainted with good old Rex Gibson & just enjoy the results #ukedchat @ukedchat I was glad to see all subjects have been retained, especially citizenship. #ukedchat #ukedchat ks1&2 subjects like art and music still leave us plenty of scope to be creative and ensure relevance to individual schools. Good! What do we think about the change in NC Levels? How will you track progress? #ukedchat @ukedchat no, I think they'd been quite careful to ensure that it would.

I'm hopeful that we've got so used to this that we'll do the same with the new one. #ukedchat @ukedchat @ukedchat ...

No creativity #ukedchat #ukedchat I wold like to be able to do more cross phase shared work and training but can schools afford to give this time? Not nationally !! @Laura_Suths I agree. Regardless of the wording of the document, opportunities for good S+L will continually arise #ukedchat @fod3 Interesting. How do you report to parents and submit data to LEA? #ukedchat How can it be a National Curriculum anyway if academies don't have to teach it? #ukedchat The new thing that is exciting about the new curriculum its more flexible. This means we need to be more creative and dynamic #ukedchat @fod3 @ICTmagic Where do you think the APP stuff comes from though? Same levels... so will we all carry on using them anyway? #ukedchat @mberry @lisbundock @ukedchat #ukedchat If it's anything like the last lot we'll have to adapt it. Pat's poor program anyone? #ukedchat How many academies are going to follow NC? With almost 50% it isn't really national is it! Can't help but think that lack of levels if just a cover for some other form of testing/assessment yet to be unveiled! #ukedchat RT @ICTmagic: What do we think about the change in NC Levels? How will you track progress? #ukedchat @LEAH6_ @ukedchat why do you think this is? #ukedchat @Ezzy_Moon @WithoutMotive @ChrisRaynerd @ukedchat I use this project: http://t.co/6imWmxBrS6 Trust me kids don't know #PPT #ukedchat @HeyMissSmith application of learning seems hidden rather than overt across the new nc - worrying! #ukedchat #ukedchat if schools don't cover all of the curriculum who will police that?

@fod3 abolishing levels probably Gove's greatest contribution to education.

compliance than education? #ukedchat @philallman1 By responding to the consultation? #ukedchat Let's face it, this NC is based on one man's belief that knowledge is king and kids need to be taught didactically #ukedchat @ICTmagic A good quizzical re-buff Mr. B. Who knows with the Gove...#ukedchat @aknill Totally agree. Of all these people contributing tonight not one has said they had the slightest of voices in the process. #ukedchat RT @Wonderacademy: #ukedchat A new curriculum is just another money making opportunity for textbook publishers,teach what you think will ... I think the only bit where good pedagogy will be difficult is history coz there's just so much of it. #ukedchat RT @KempsterD: Let's face it, this NC is based on one man's belief that knowledge is king and kids need to be taught didactically #ukedchat RT @danielharvey9: @ukedchat #sameasitseverbeen!! #ukedchat RT @ianaddison: RT @mrlockyer #ukedchat A curriculum is what you make it - emphasise, elaborate, explore, enhance, excite!

Good pedagogy is the answer to all of this. #computing #ukedchat @mberry agreed - but surely this is key to good practice and nc should enshrine this? #ukedchat RT @davidbrading: #ukedchat@ukedchat new to all this chat business.. LOVING IT @Gwenelope Remember that the new SPaG test is not being assessed fully this year. Only floor indicators. Might be the same for NC. #ukedchat Just under 10 minutes remaining for #ukedchat #ukedchat late as have had head buried in work &

lost track of time @HeadsRoundtable hopes to influence this @Wonderacademy #ukedchat if you teach things you are passionate about/interested in you will teach better. Not just dry fact regurgitation.

explore, enhance, excite! @SheliBB @ukedchat Great tool. : ) #ukedchat @Gwenelope @aknill @Animate2Educate - ANYONE can reply to the consultation. You don't need a personal invite! #ukedchat @mberry Indeed... and it pains me when people, especially educators, forget that! @thought_weavers @KempsterD #ukedchat @Gwenelope @aknill @Animate2Educate Only now when it's all but done and dusted. All the more reason for us to respond clearly! #ukedchat #ukedchat I have found that results improve when u follow the principles of the excellence & enjoyment document. Remember that one? Tweet Blog:Academies Think in 5 Tweets http://t.co/AQMYMYbDSL #storify #ukedchat @Gwenelope @aknill @Animate2Educate #ukedchat It will be essential for schools to devote time in the next half term for all to respond. @jackieschneider exam grade, That is what they are judged on and sometimes creativity takes time haven't got. Sad but not true? #ukedchat RT @mrlockyer #ukedchat Would rec you read "Why do you nd teachers.." By @ThatIanGilbert - skills ovr knwldge evry time. NC is a fact silo! RT @jackieschneider: ANYONE can reply to the consultation. You dont need a personal invite! #ukedchat @MrHTabc123 Quite. Entitlement is reduced to core knowledge. If you want more, find a good school or hope for a good teacher. #ukedchat @KempsterD Think what was spent on the process! Get the individuals contributing tonight together & we'd have done a better job. #ukedchat @SaveOur_History I'm still training and personally I'm gutted, I maybe be bias but WWII in particular is a great primary topic! #ukedchat What should we ask for in the consultation? Modifications or start again? What can we realistically achieve? #ukedchat Just 5 minutes of #ukedchat remain. Final thoughts?

Why are we getting rid?! #ukedchat @crispinweston so why not require it of /all/ schools? @ianaddison #ukedchat #ukedchat like idea of schools creating own curriculumwould be impossible 2 examin & therefore no chance of any standardised qualification #ukedchat have invited my mp in 2 see the good work of a dedicated band of teachers and to discuss problems

with the draft nc @michaelt1979 @aknill @Animate2Educate Oh that word, 'consultation' makes me wince. #ukedchat #ukedchat I've been drafting a marking & feedback policy. I'm pleased with it :) @thought_weavers It will take the next government a long time to change. Look at the previous government! #ukedchat @ChrisRaynerd @jackieschneider We all need to get up and leave the classroom then if this is what it has come to #nohope #ukedchat @thought_weavers - don't rely on the pathetic Twigg to change ANYTHING - just as Tory as Gove #ukedchat RT @thought_weavers: #ukedchat if implemented the nc may only last around 9 months if there is change of government! Perhaps we shouldn' ... #ukedchat Here's my initial draft of response to NC consultation: https://t.co/pPAPAc9LYf <- comments welcome! @thought_weavers #ukedchat exactly why there should be an independent body who run education!!!!! X #ukedchat does anyone else think the new curriculum is another nudge toward becoming an academy? Over 90% of schools teach 'Of Mice and Men'. Gove not keen on the narrowness of this. Will we see it culled completely? #ukedchat #ukedchat don't miss tickets for next week's Future Learning conf - see speakers and book tickets here http://t.co/EKkEpBpeoU #education 2 minutes... Name one thing that you would like to 'pencil in' to the new NC which isn't there in the draft. #ukedchat @Animate2Educate But when my trainees talk about aims and vision, they have such nobility of purpose. @jackieschneider #ukedchat @KempsterD @ChrisRaynerd - no we need to OCCUPY the classroom and show the parents why they should trust US & not toxic tories! #ukedchat @Lynnewin100 yes I do #ukedchat @Gwenelope @michaelt1979 @aknill @animate2educate #ukedchat I think 'token' consultation!
