If I can get the development of my own teaching as focused as this, I’ll be a happy teacher. Some great ideas on how to identify a ‘Marginal Learning Gain’, and strategies to maintain focus over a prolonged period of time.

"For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath."
My own personal view on UK Education and bits n bobs
Marginal learning gains is inspired by the same philosophy that underpinned the extraordinary success of Team GB Cycling at the Beijing and London Olympics. The philosophy is simple: focus on doing a few small things really well. Once you do this, aggregating the gains you make will become part of a bigger impact on learning. For students, for teachers and schools. Join the MLG conversation with Zoe Elder @fullonlearning on Twitter
