It's 8pm. Time for #ukedchat with @debsgf - After Gove: What has the profession gained & learnt? What will be Gove's legacy? What positive aspects has Gove brought to the teaching profession? #ukedchat RT NEW BLOG: Effective questioning part 2 http://ow.ly/psj7s #edchat #ukedchat #teaching <part of my Improving Teaching series of blogs Let's make is measured and reflective people! #ukedchat. What positive things has Gove brought to the profession? Read Mark Anderson's post on "Twitter in the classroom" http://buff.ly/16Ikggg #pedagoo #ukedchat @englishlulu what will his legacy be? #ukedchat @boogiebeebie what has it highlighted exactly? #ukedchat So #ukedchat tonight about Gove. Think I may say something that's pretty much the ultimate heresy. @Debsgf SATs Writing paper become optional under his watch. Struggling for much else... #TryingHardToBePositive #UKedchat The 7 stages of @Ofstednews preparation. Stage 6: PANIC http://edapt.co/16k1qd3 #ukedchat @boogiebeebie has stated it made them realise what's important in teaching. Do you agree? #ukedchat #ukedchat Here it is: Gove hasn't really changed much, but the big difference is that, unlike his predecessors, he listens to teachers. @englishlulu what aspects of his changes do you like? #ukedchat @Debsgf #ukedchat - Dare I say a better English curriculum? #ukedchat Hah! Said it. And I'm completely serious. I wonder if he knows he has a split digraph in his name #govonics #ukedchat @stephwelsford do you think this in a strange way has galvanised the teaching profession? #ukedchat For you #Science teachers: #onthisday in 1985 The Space Shuttle Atlantis was launched. In total it has orbited Earth 4,848 times #ukedchat @Debsgf #ukedchat tougher texts, no more dumbing down. I only teach weakest kids - they love a hard text

as the ideas are so much better #ukedchat For most of my teaching career, there were @oldandrewuk opinions that you were not even meant to discuss in right-thinking political circles. @Debsgf Perhaps his contributions have unified @LeavUrImge2FDP teachers & encourage thm 2 reflect on effective methods 2 garner support. #ukedchat Just giving. It's better than just Goving. #ukedchat https://www.justgiving.com/Lynne-Moore/? @MooreLynne1 utm_source=Twitter&utm_medium=fundraisingpage&ut m_content=Lynne-Moore&utm_campaign=pfp-tweetmobile @oldandrewuk please expand....how has he listened to @Debsgf the profession more than his predecessors? #ukedchat #ukedchat Things like the behaviour crisis and the low @oldandrewuk expectations of comprehensives were just not allowed. It was not just that there... @LeavUrImge2FDP so would you say in a strange way @Debsgf he has developed the profession in a positive way? #ukedchat Tonight's #ukedchat: After Gove: What has the @ukedchat profession gained & learnt?

Isn't that what PRP allow for? #ukedchat #ukedchat ...were certain opinions that were rejected, it @oldandrewuk was like it was unprofessional to even debate them. Those teachers who exposed... @boogiebeebie but he thinks the system should be @Debsgf more robust? Surely change is needed in some respects? #ukedchat @englishlulu Dickens is very popular with Gove, is that @Debsgf a diverse curriculum though? #ukedchat #ukedchat ...what went on in schools were struck @oldandrewuk off.Anything but spin was seen as rightwing propaganda even when it came from the chalkface @urban_teacher `Gove doesn't care what the evidence says he doesn't

think of teaching as a profession sees it more as a trade.' #ukedchat very true! #Gove has definitely unified the teachers. People get @MohammedSidat closer through struggle #ukedchat The free #ukedchat e-bulletin is the best way to find the most useful/interesting posts on the hashtag. Subscribe @ukedchat at http://ukedchat.us7.list-manage1.com/subscribe? u=e97344da33f46a7dbb6f16fe4&id=ec47899e39 #ukedchat The ultimate example of this was the debate @oldandrewuk over behaviour in schools during the 2005 election. Ruth Kelly headed it off with... @Debsgf His approach mks us consdr othr methods @LeavUrImge2FDP outside of business as usual.Love the idea of parents invested in school design. #UKEdChat @Debsgf #ukedchat agreed that just Victorian novels @englishlulu and Romantic poetry is dull, but so is teaching Skellig The education system was not perfect pre 2010, surely @Debsgf some changes where needed though? Are teachers just resistant to change? #ukedchat @redgierob Here is ours from yesterday. We staged a @ClaireMarie00 'crash site' at school. http://bit.ly/17tkJAI #bigwriting #ukedchat #ukedchat interested in philosophy w/children?

So am I as a parent. #ukedchat ...an enquiry. The Steer Committee reported @oldandrewuk back that everything was absolutely fine & nobody should worry. Even used urban... @englishlulu I think surely some mix up is good. What @Debsgf about his changes in other aspects of school life? #ukedchat #ukedchat ...myths about Plato to suggest worries about @oldandrewuk behaviour had always existed. A complete whitewash. @Debsgf @TillyTeacher Sometimes a blatant threat is @LeavUrImge2FDP a huge motivation! #ukedchat

belief that a knowledge-based curr develops creativity is @davidhunter sound.unfortnly,he has NOT implemented the best of ed. around the world #ukedchat @sumi1998 what changes have most irked you? @Debsgf #ukedchat Michael Gove has no idea what real life is like for large @urban_teacher numbers of teachers, parents and students - Christine Blowe. #ukedchat @LeavUrImge2FDP @TillyTeacher how have you @Debsgf changed your teaching them? Do you think you are more radical? #ukedchat How to make iPad kids think BIG!: http://ipad4schools.org/2013/07/13/making-ipad-kids@iPadWells think-big/ #UKEdchat #iPadEd pic.twitter.com/5INvuk5IDH @ClaireMarie00 @redgierob nice idea, love the BBC @nightzookeeper news report :-) #ukedchat #ukedchat -a toxic challenge; Gove's legacy:will it be @Catriona_O the biggest endorsement ever of elitism #academieseverywhere? Do you think that Gove is correct In bringing private @Debsgf schools into closer contact with their state schools counterparts? #ukedchat Adaptability and sharing good practice is important and @Jakepryszlak how we share these across the UK to collaborate further! #ukedchat @Debsgf I think the changes are just happening too @GeographyCarrie quickly. We barely have time to adjust before the next change comes in #ukedchat #ukedchat This is what's changed under Gove. The @oldandrewuk education establishment can no longer brush things under the carpet. If something comes... @TillyTeacher @Debsgf I agree! a "jolt" can dissolve @LeavUrImge2FDP "complacency." Must always b prepared 2 fite 4 education. Not fair. Just life #ukedchat @GeographyCarrie but change is good surely? @Debsgf #ukedchat @oldandrewuk #ukedchat that's it? That's the ultimate @birch_david heresy? Like most people he listens most to those who support his view of the world Surely the examination system needed a shake up in @Debsgf some respects ? #ukedchat

Change is good... I am goodness. #ukedchat Reduce workload and improve impact #ukedchat #edchat #resource #teach #globaled #scichat #mathchat #eslchat pic.twitter.com/BiYD8Li8Br @Debsgf #ukedchat #Gove Gave a magnificent performance on #bbcqt last week. One of, only a few Tories with common sense. #ukedchat Gove (the GFrorce) has made us more professional in the sense that we muster evidence of impact to deny his odd criticisms @sumi1998 exactly @GeographyCarrie's comment. How have your children handled the inconsistency? #ukedchat think I would rather have the skeletal curriculum offered than pure dictation. There is a lot missing, think we should innovate #ukedchat Hopefully he will have brought the poorly children of Blackpool a new school via PSB. That's positive after cancelling BSF. #ukedchat #ukedchat Gove's legacy: Teacher strike, poet laureate angry, allegations of cheating @ Harris, pupil places crisis, Schools Direct failing. @A_Simon which of his policies do you most agree with/support? #ukedchat I think Michael Gove looks like a walrus. #ukedchat #ukedchat ...up that they don't want the public to know about, they can fume & spin & say they are the experts. But they can't kill it. #ukedchat big legacy of Gove is the lack of a credible alternative narrative from Labour @Debsgf Not when it happens so fast we can't adjust to it. I've been teaching 5yrs and had 3 curriculum changes...too much! #ukedchat @LeavUrImge2FDP @TillyTeacher but fire in your belly is good. Allows you to develop a new enthusiasm for the profession surely? #ukedchat #primary #ks2 teachers: what do you want to know about British prehistory to teach it to years 3/4 in 2014? #ukedchat @A_Simon @Debsgf #ukedchat #Gove #bbcqt Really? He came across as a lying two faced wanker What's the topic this evening? I'm late joining.

The educational establishment actually having to make excuses instead of just ignoring all dissent. @teachric Has Gove quit? #ukedchat I'm just getting started, baby. Next week's #ukedchat poll is waiting at http://twtpoll.com/atvaar4xzl62eph .

they/we understand what we're aiming for to ensure the greatest progress #ukedchat #ukedchat Gove legacy is/will be exacerbation of poor recruitment/retention figures. He's hoping it'll be someone else's problem @Soarpoints PP is being promoted now by the coalition. This is a good thing surely? #ukedchat #ukedchat Gove legacy: a conference on the future of London Schools is being sponsored & addressed by Wonga & its founder @fatbobmoonbeam #ukedchat How many teachers were utterly delighted over the end of controlled assessments? @CaptainGove thats what I thought #ukedchat #fail #again Check out http://hwbcontent.eventbrite.co.uk and http://ow.ly/pl0vf for two cracking events for teachers RT please #hwbdysgu #addcym #ukedchat Teacher training. Training on the job. More teaching schools and direct in the classroom too. This is new and exciting surely? #ukedchat @Debsgf I'm trying not to, don't want you filthy staties getting near my precious clean privates... Oh, hang on. #ukedchat @Debsgf #ukedchat He discusses the things teachers argue about. Dumbed-down exams. Silly teaching methods. Behaviour. #ukedchat more Gove legacy: 20% cuts to 6th forms, slashing EMA, trebling tuition fees, closing London challenge, removing need for QTS, @Debsgf Great for geography, but the Ebacc has harmed others (e.g. drama) Change is often good for some and not for others #ukedchat #ukedchat My politically disengaged Y11 nephew suddenly announced this week that he "hates" Michael #Gove That's his legacy. Surely Gove has just highlighted some uncomfortable truths about exams, cwk & achievement. Isn't it time teachers open to change? #ukedchat Any Drama/music teachers out there? @GeographyCarrie is discussing the subjects not included in the EBacc #ukedchat

Gove's legacy is turbulence. Educational eddies, no @MrAlexanderMath slipstream to drag everyone along #ukedchat @MrWaldram how can we fast track you to ed sec? @judedalton #ukedchat @DanSeanClayton but surely the way the profession @Debsgf responds to him just validates his position? #ukedchat @mattpearson @Debsgf would the phrase 'not for profit' @WhiteDebs make a significant difference? Surely good for all to work together? #ukedchat @SurrealAnarchy and, with Wonga, you can choose @CaptainGove which children to clothe and for how many days. genius. #ukedchat @Teachric @mattpearson #ukedchat He's mentioned a @oldandrewuk hell of a lot of teacher bloggers and writers. Half way and please to see levelled and reasoned @ukedchat debate. 30 minutes to go #ukedchat MT: "@DanSeanClaytonNah, he wins them because @Debsgf he's in govt and does what he wants.

everyone save yourself :-) #ukedchat @Wonderacademy #ukedchat That was a reference to the Steer Report. @Debsgf Gove doesn't win arguments. He's arrogant enough to ignore them though. Why does he elicit such heated responses so often? #ukedchat #ukedchat Don't miss our free posters - we've got them for maths, geography, science, citizenship and English! http://bit.ly/16h5dZ9 #ukedchat Gove's newspeak: teacher autonomy = central direction on how to teach reading. Autonomy for schools = control by academy chains .@oldandrewuk yes, he's listened to (some) teachers on some issues. But like most SoS he's comfy listening to those he agrees with #ukedchat What will Gove's legacy be in ten year's time? #ukedchat #ukedchat sorry I got distracted, where have we got to? @Debsgf A shortage of teachers I would guess #ukedchat @BoardworksLtd Hey, stop hashtag crashing, we're talking about me! #ukedchat #UKedchat is always on the look out for hosts for the community's Thursday night sessions. If you are interested, please get in touch. #ukedchat Is the UK surprised that the Private School boys like Gove are pushing the idea the Private schooling is Edu's only hope. I have seem Gove speak a number of times in front of teachers,each time questions asked & comments allowed Gove to seem rational. #ukedchat #ukedchat #edchat #education #Gove #teacher pic.twitter.com/jbOtqVmsff @ruthkennedy #ukedchat He's even paid trubute to the Local Schools Network and the Head's Roundtable.

Lord Hill 2010 #ukedchat #ukedchat Just to emphasise this point, I'm actually saying I don't think Gove has achieved much beyond starting the debate. #ukedchat Gove often cites teachers...seems to note issues, BUT: http://cazzypotsblog.wordpress.com/2013/09/06/empow ered-and-free-not-me-mr-gove-3/ Unless he can ENFORCE what he says = minimal change.

My iPad site might help some: http://ipad4schools.org #ukedchat But even to acknowledge that education should be debated rather than be the exclusive preserve of insiders is progress. #ukedchat ...just can't help but fiddle because it produces visable results.

Drove to work behind Michael Gove this morning! #claimtofame pic.twitter.com/cORTQ6lz7q #ukedchat @emmaannhardy @WhiteDebs so are you saying that Gove's legacy could be the breaking up of union power and influence? #ukedchat #ukedchat ...boarding school - 3.30 is when the second half of my day begins, 1 hour and counting till home time :) @Keith_Turvey @ruthkennedy Can't think of any example of Balls et al acknowledging the views of ordinary classroom teachers. #ukedchat Gove's blundering legacy: after just a few days in office he cancelled BSF without due legal process #ukedchat My 3 (16,19,21) watching him on tv -"he's just said our exams & hardwork are worthless & we're useless" no future votes there then!#ukedchat #ukedchat There is no legacy.
