Getting back to Basics...

Now for a Business/Computing teacher who uses computers to teach on a daily basis, I thought it would be impossible to go back to teaching accounts the old fashioned way...Chalk and fancy powerpoints!!! It was hard...and it is harder to become imaginative without all the interactive software,websites etc etc around....but I quite enjoyed going back to basics. I actually found that I CAN teach....that I am not hiding behind computers.

I think the use of computers is a good thing, but also using the traditional methods of chalk and talk are sometimes overlooked. That's my words of wisdom for today.

I played Hide and seek at the weekend with some of my was in the dark and it was sooooooo much fun.!!!! Imagine telling my pupils that I was playing hide and seek at the weekend!!!!

I'm trying my first ever powerpoint tomorrow with first years!! Not sure how it will go, but its not something which any of the other teachers in the department use so I wanted to give it a go.

Wish me luck!

I know students are broke and can't afford to do much at weekends, but hide and seek......really!

Glad to hear your placement is going well. Not long to go now.
I have got back to sorting my own blog out again, got pretty lazy about it over last few months.
