Well, I am heading to Brisbane for a Literacy Conference for a few days. I am presenting my Positioning the Reader paper. I have a 90 minute session so I’ve included a couple of practical activities to hopefully make the session interesting and interactive. I’ll report back about how it is received when I return!
Well, I have placed my Handbook chapter about cyberculture etc online here. I would welcome feedback, critique and comments via email. Although it is under review I think the more suggestions I have for improvement the better because, well, here’s the thing - a lot of non-education internet scholars seem to be of the opinion that educators are not “digitally at home” or “digital natives” or able to write “from within” and I really want my work to stand up to scrutiny and avoid such negative labelling. So, please feel welcome to email me (firstname.lastname@example.org).

I was out prac visiting again this morning and remembered to take my camera (though it was a different school than last week). I found these monolithic pillars designed from each individual children’s little piece of kiln-baked clay pot. I’ll get around to asking about the story behind them next visit. I was too concerned about the two students whose reports by their teacher both left a LOT to be desired. When i was a prac student I was running around crazily bending over backwards to make a good impression and to act professionally.
