The summer may have lacked sunshine, but it sizzled with sporting excellence. Former Olympic gymnast Craig Heap explains how to harness the momentum and encourage reluctant exercisers to love PE.

Ed Whittaker completes a literary marathon with the final instalment in his unmissable classroom management mini-series, and Rachel Gordon rounds up the best free schemes for schools.

Odes to the iPad are so numerous that one might mistakenly believe the tablet to be of the kind revealed to Moses. David Andrews offers some excellent but earthly examples of how to deploy the devices in your classroom.

Calculators may predate iPads (and most prophets), but they too should be used advisedly. Maths teacher William Miles warns against letting pupils become reliant on technology.

From this September, secondary schools must comply with new careers guidance requirements. Having recently piloted an RSA-funded careers guidance programme, Dr Ingrid Wassenaar explains how to adhere to the legislation and provide a valuable service to pupils.

It’s a concept that’s gaining popularity, but what exactly is SOLO? English teacher Lisa Jane Ashes untangles the taxonomy everyone’s talking about.

Flip teaching is the focus of this issue’s Innovation Update, and don’t miss our twinterview with IT and SEN specialist Carol Allen. We also have recent product reviews from the Innovate My School website.
