A few days ago, @clyn40 kindly included me in a nomination with some of the loveliest people ( @MrsSarahSimons @Xris32 @sezl @FurtherEdagogy ) in #FE for the
The instructions were slightly worrying but I've reproduced them below and hopefully, they're not too difficult.
There are only 3 rules. Thankfully, not *those* rules
1. You cannot knowingly include someone you work with in real life.
2. You cannot list somebody that has already been named if you are already made aware of them being listed on #TwitteratiChallenge.
3. You will need to copy and paste the title of this blogpost and (the rules and what to do) information into your own blog post.
If you're going to play you need to:
1. Put up your own nominations within 7 days
2. Write your blog post, listing the people you choose and why, with the title #TwitteratiChallenge
3. Include a photograph or video of yourself raising a glass (I cheated here - but being clumsy, couldn't manage a glass and a 'phone without getting in a mess - and ... he's just better at it)
So, here is my 'Cheers'
Now the tough bit ... who to choose. ...
These are all people who have left their mark in my life and in my heart. Each of them have inspired and encouraged me. Follow them and they will do the same for you. They're not in any particular order, as they're all fabulous.
@hearnesque Writer/Director horror feature SCRAWL with Mark Forester Evans & Daisy Ridley. Wrestles bears in spare time. Builds robots at night. Lectures film stuff. Busy.
Pete is a great teacher, full of ideas, bravery and inspiration. Someone who battled endless issues to give his students the greatest possible real life experience by turning the BTEC specification into a movie #scrawlmovie http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2501366/ and https://www.facebook.com/scrawlmovie which is going to be a fabulous and well deserved hit.
@bobharrisonset Bob is passionate about education and the potential of technology to transform learning. 40yrs as a Teacher,Lecturer,Principal,Governor. http://www.setuk.co.uk Tireless champion of #FELTAG A man who selflessly promotes the use of technology in learning and inspires those of us to tag along in his wake.
@BcoTMedia Scott. Specialist Practitioner of Social Media & EdTech/ Lecturer/ Director
Easily the best, most innovative teacher I've ever met and the most modest. He is an inspiration to many through his relaxed teaching style, brilliant ideas, use of tech and for just being a thoroughly good guy.
@app4England Lindsay McCurdy. CEO Apprenticeships 4 England, Ambassador at European Alliance for Apprenticeships http://www.apprenticeships4england.info A strong, beautiful and clever woman, who set up Apprenticeships 4 England. Brilliant, sharp, funny and endlessly lovely lady.
@dp40days A senior leader in Further Education. It might seem like my back's against the wall, but if you look closely, you'll see I'm on the front foot! Sharp, funny and fabulous company, David is knowledgeable, great company and has a wonderful sense of irony; he is a superb asset for #FE
I would very much like to have included @sezl but she had already been 'taken' as it were. Currently organising a huge concert to raise money for the victims of the Nepal earthquake. Support her if you can, please.
There are many, many more who deserve to be listed and I hope that they are justly rewarded elsewhere.
