The power of words – think Ronseal

Words matter.

Computing isn’t creative.  It affords conditions that enable people to be Creative. Creativity is a non word.

One of the reasons that any of the atrocities in learning theory such as the VAK debacle occurred is because the words have pre-existing meaning or are easy to get some flawed handle on without actually engaging with the theory.

Computing: we need an elevator pitch. We need a “why” words

Assessment: a soiled word

Lesson Planning – this is selling
