This one’s for all the educational rock- stars of the world.
World Teachers’ Day has been a thing since 1994.
It’s held internationally every year on October 5th. As the day usually falls during school holidays, Queensland (Australia) holds its celebrations on the last Friday of October each year.
For the last few years the Queensland College of Teachers has held an annual photo competition designed to capture inspiring teacher moments. The pictures below are some of the winners and finalists from last year’s competition which received 527 entries.
Sorry but I just couldn’t resist dropping in this Big Bang Theory drone segment…
The winners and finalists for the 2018 competition will be announced next month.
Before we say goodbye to the land of pedagogues take a look at the picture below. There are few things as fascinating as seeing what people in the past dreamed about the future. This painting made by French artist Jean-Marc Côté in 1900 shows what a classroom of the future (the future being the year 2000) might look like. I’ve heard of schools being described as ‘learning factories’ but that is definitely next level.
