Hijacking someone else’s cpd

Not a violent or aggressive hijacking,but being cheeky, assertive, taking the opportunities offered. Today I attended a day about how Canons High School, Edgware, have developed their surplus model through the use of pedagogy leaders.

I have previously met members of the team  through PedagooLondon 2013, Teachmeet Collaborate in Sept, and twitter. I know that Solo taxonomy has been one aspect that they are developing. Today I got an opportunity to see lessons in progress and talk about solo and @globalsolo. Already having returned home I have passed on recommended links discussed today Рthis is exactly why I started the network idea.

Ideas to present about solo taxonomy in joint workshop, June 2014

I am very lucky to have been given a place jointly presenting with Andy Day (@Andyphilipday) at Northern rocks 2014. We will be delivering on Solo taxonomy, which we are both keen advocates of, as well as representing the 50+ age band in teaching. I want to use a representative sample of examples of using solo across our member countries. The workshop needs to inc. some presenter led input but the more hands on using the taxonomy,the more I believe we will convince others of its worth.

What I seek are examples of activities used when introducing educators to solo and also moving learners from multistructural to relational and extended abstract. I would like to represent uses in primary,secondary and university education.

Please suggest links,sites, blog posts so I can gather a range of materials.

Many thanks
