I took two large boxes of work with me on holiday. Well, actually I was acting as unpaid driver for my eldest who was taking photos at Fairford Airshow!!! And, I returned with then, for the most part, unopened! And I’m so glad I did.
I managed to spend the holiday, when not wall building and path making and shed removing and soil laying and plum slate transferring…, having a break from the guilt that is contempory education. I could have done with another week though!
I appeared to have chilled out about ICT. Chilled out, not cooled off. We seem to get driven by new tech, instead of leading where we need it to take us. So, I’m endeavouring to take it all one step at a time. You can tell I’m only two weeks in. Though, cynicism apart, these have been two good weeks, not the usual two panicky, get-everything-organised weeks. Setting clear, but very simple goals for a simple CFE topic, has made the learning, and the planning, focused and effective.
And of course I will be using ICT. When I want to and when it enhances. Not because I ought to.
