Pete (@mr_van_w) opens with a shout out to the Mr Barton Maths Podcast http://www.mrbartonmaths.com/podcast/ and his interview of Andrew Blair (@inquirymaths). Which is a good example of a teachers from both sides of the Trad/Prog fence having a civil conversation. Something that we would like to see more of especially on twitter. 

John (@jfcatto) discusses the lowering in worth of a Bachelors degree and whether we should continue to push students into degrees that they don't need and perhaps no longer count for much.

Pete's not near John, and this makes him sad. So he sent John an audio message. 

Dear John...

Pete's been reading the excellent @cultofpedagogy again. As it often does it pulled his head out of the oven. Nostalgia is the killer of art and it turns out it may be just as dangerous to education.

Pete (@mr_van_w) has some tips from some teachers he knows for Teachers. 

Check out the Shiny teacher he works with on Instagram @stammertime, she's posting some rad stuff.

Flipgrid - not just for Flipped Learning (in fact probably mostly not for flipped learning).
