What’s your learning style?

Ok, first of all, an apology. Although I started back on my Sunday blogging routine there was, and I hope you noticed, no waffle last Sunday. This was because I was poorly and couldn’t get out of bed until the late afternoon. I hope you were not too disappointed to …

Three gets to success

Well I’m back! After a long summer doing radio shows, streaming gaming and enjoying everything from walks in the sunshine to sitting watching films I am back and entering once more into my blogging habits. It’s been a while since I have actually written/typed/recorded/created a waffle for this site so …

I’m a nagger! – How I get things done.

Personal Waffle – Confession time!

man confessing

Every now and again, I feel that I would like to write more of a personal waffle. When I say personal, I mean that rather than sharing my views or thoughts about teaching, technology and twaddle, I mean that I want to tell you something about myself and how this impacts on my learning and, in some cases, my teaching. This is going to be one of those waffles and I am going to start with a confession…
