Typical............

One of the first times...I miss a lecture (honestly).....and my blog gets a shout out!!!!! The moral of the story is....never get the flu. To be honest, I would have gone completely red and hid under my massive long scarf (that I got for christmas), if I was asked to stand up and identify myself. I would like to apologise to David Muir for letting the blogging and Computing side down!!!!!!!!! I will be there at the next one. Just so you know, "this morning" was not up to much.

For those who are visiting my blog for the first time (as a result of the ICT lecture or whatever) I would totally recommend blogging..... It is just like keeping a diary....but its not secret and people can reply to you. A great idea.... By keeping a blog throughout my placement enabled me to be a "reflective practicioner" and allowed me to put things into perspective (about my teaching and what not). I have also had some great advice from teachers and other people too; and what is good is that non of these people know you, so they are honest. What would be good, is that if load of students started blogging - we could all help each other through the busiest most difficult year of our academic lives ( Well it is for me).

Anyway, time for bed for me....I still have the plague.....and I don't want to miss my lectures tomorrow.

Hi Lesley,
Thanks for visiting my blog. Like I said in it, I'm still not quite sure WHAT I'm doing, or what I'm doing it for but I'll keep on with it. I have to confess to being a bit thick when it comes to working out how it will be of use in the classroom and I would be very interested to hear how you used it in your placement. I suppose as a 'pressure valve' for letting off steam it will be very useful!
Hope you're over the 'flu'. My ten year old - let's call him Jamy - went down with 'classic 'flu'' on Christmas Eve - poor thing - he's still not quite right but he's back at school anyway.

Hi lesley,

Have been inspired to start a blog after hearing David's lecture and reading your own. Hope fellow bloggers can help me through the next 6 tough months!

Bye for now!
