  3. The BBC education section is good at providing bitesize topics for you to look at. They also provide further reading suggestions and related articles if you wanted to research in more depth.
    I think the Free Schools 'epidemic' could be quite a contemporay topic to look at, would you like to work for a school which is run by an agenda set based by parents/other teachers/ industry etc. The rise of academies is also relevant and could be argued either way.
    I am personally interested in the role of ICT in the classroom and how we are making the curriculum engaging and relevant to media saturated children. I recently met a teacher who now runs an online academy- this sounded crazy to me but it could be the future?!
    I hope this helps :)
