Reports are done (mostly), a long weekend and some TIME to catch up on a few things on my reading list!
Really liked this article from idealog!
Some really interesting findings, including that
"three quarters of respondents said that they are more likely to stay at their current company if it has an inspiring office space and sixty percent said that the office interior layout has a substantial impact on their decision to work for the company." I wonder if new schools find it easier to attract staff than older schools and how much this is a factor for teachers seeking new positions?
And wow - check out this blog post about Dr Cheryl Doig's upcoming book on collaboration. Some awesome stuff here and the infographic is great!
I am currently reading Carol Dweck's book about Growth Mindset and it is great to see it being used in context here. I love the idea how three types of mindset are needed for collaboration.

An interesting article on student lead learning and curriculum from our Education Gazette:
And I think this is the next book I shall be ordering - maybe in time for the school holidays when my feet might touch the ground again! Enjoy the rest of Term 2 everyone!
