TTT Episode 60: Don't Design Lessons Around Fads and Get a Mentor

This week Pete (@mr_van_w) examines the tempting lure of building lessons around the current fad in student culture. This happens to be Fortnite at the moment, it was Pokemon a couple of years ago and it will be something else next time you teach the topic. 

John (@jfcatto) highlights the need for teachers old and new to have a mentor to support them and their teaching. #findyourmarigold
