Wilson Waffling Live – Episode 69

Well, you can’t say I don’t try! we are up to episode 69 and I still forget to put my mic on after some of the segments…will I ever learn :(. I have, however, added some fancy transitions to my Website Roundup and the Tweets of the Week include some posts from our Primary Education Website. I set you an activity to complete relating to putting a message in a bottle and I give you a time related problem in the teaching Idea segment – all this and some idle chat as well – what else could you possible want! Run titles!

This waffle probably should have happened last week, but I wanted to write about life before broadband – thanks to everyone who read that – it got a huge amount of hits and comments on twitter etc. This week is the first of a two part waffle – the first looking at whether or not I have achieved my targets I set myself at the beginning of 2015 and the second to set some targets for 2016 – if you like, new year resolutions without mentioning the word diet! So did I succeed or was I a complete failure in 2015 – let’s get a waffling…
