This week's waffle...

This morning I woke up and had a revelation while I was lying in bed. Don’t worry it wasn’t painful and it soon past. Sometimes, you get into a routine with things and before you know it you are doing it over and over again without little thought. I’m sure that I read once that you need to keep doing something consistently for three weeks before it actually becomes a habit and, after that, you are more likely to engage with it without much thought. But, there comes a time when you have to think – has this habit been going on for too long and is it time to break the habit or change it. Well, that was what my revelation was about…

I’m really enjoying doing Wilson Waffling Live, especially the changes to the website roundup segment – really nice just to discuss the articles rather than...

What I really think about assessment…

What I really think about assessment…
Every Sunday morning I get up super early in order to read educational articles and write the script for Monday's Wilson Waffling Live show. The process can go one of two ways, it can either really motivate me to continue to with current practices or, as it was the case this morning, it can end up getting me rather frustrated about things. This blog often reflects my own personal views about things and I try to ensure that I present ideas and comments which can be supportive for the reader. I probably do not always achieve this with the five people who watch/listen to my waffles, but what I try not to do is not to have a rant. Although controversy can often increase views I do try to avoid this at all times. This waffle is going to be about assessment and my own views about it. Please remember these are my own personal views and are not meant to be controversial in any way. Although they might come across that way...

just made the 20:00 start tonight - why? Because I was playing Overwatch - sorry. Some great ideas for three activities to do with the identification of birds, the regular activity to start the day off and some news about OFSTED in the website roundup - better late than never! Run titles!

Who am I? Who am I? – I’m…

Who am I? Who am I? – I’m…
As my marking has been returned and teaching has stopped for summer, I am turning my attention to one of the other many aspects of my job as an academic which is research. Some people suggest that you do a little bit of research every now and again and, although I do try and read the odd article/research paper, I prefer to have a good go at something so I can get into the 'zone'. It is interesting how your mindset and thoughts actually start to change as your brain is released from other work related topics, tasks and problems and the time appears, within the working day, to engage with new problems and ideas. Using technology such as Evernote and Omnifocus, I can collate my ideas, books and articles which I have found during the teaching timetable for this moment in the year when I have to time to actually go back over them and start to both engage and interact with them. Tomorrow I will be sat in the library, which is virtually empty at the moment, to start to engage with those notes which I have saved. But what will I be focusing on? Well, to be honest - I can be honest with you can't I? - I am having a bit of an identity crisis and can't decide who I actually am...
