Performance Teaching

An interesting talk...
Four Thought 

Various knowledges that teachers need... learning how to imitate...
Pedagogical content knowledge
Contextual knowledge - each pupil's strengths and weaknesses
Theoretical knowledge - how memory works (from working memory to long term memory...)

Matt talks about some myths of teaching:
  1. Belief in the myth that teachers are born not made undervalues the importance of teacher training.
  2. If you know something you can teach it.
  3. Teaching is only moderately difficult 
Teaching is "a phenomenal task that takes years to master".... 

The Institute of Teaching gets a plug at the end.

Thanks to Keith Hicks for the tipoff...
