My name is Mike Tidd and I am Head of Geography at Gillingham School in Dorset. I have been a teacher for most of my working life and I immensely enjoy my role as a teacher. I have a deep interest in education developments and I am motivated to help fellow practitioners and young people to achieve their potential.
Over the last few years I have watched colleagues and friends write their own blogs with much interest and delight. I have seen the response these have received and how people can work collaboratively together to make a difference. It has finally come to that moment where I have decided to join the ‘conversation’.
My website will be focusing primarily on education within the UK. I shall be writing about new education developments, geography as a leading subject and how new technologies may have a role to play in education. I have been lucky to have been nominated and shortlisted for two Education Blog Awards; Best Teacher Blog and Most Influential Blog in both 2011 and 2012.
Last year I became a member of the Microsoft Partners in Learning network and took part in my first TeachMeet in Dorset (the first of many!)
I wish you all a successful 2013!
