Apps in the Classroom: Should we be Fighting Phone use?

How Flipping the Classroom can Instill Grit in Generation Z Learners

As an FE teacher I often struggle to find the boundary between being an attentive and supportive educator and doing too much for my learners. In all teachers there is a caring nature which drives us above and beyond in helping each student achieve outstanding outcomes. As we all search for new methods and dedicate hours to creating resources it can become easy to place the onus on ourselves rather than our learners. This can be detrimental to teachers, with a GOV.UK survey finding the average  working week to be approximately 54 hours (with around 19 hours outside of the workplace), but can also create bad habits in our learners.
