I'm busy and stupid - so I've read a children's story and changed a postgraduate assessment
It's the marking season, heads down read-comment-grade and finally email dozens of assignments back. For teachers it's the silly season, most of us go slightly "mental" at these times of year.
So to keep myself sane I've taken the weekend off! Yesterday as well as little jobs around the house I read and recorded some more Just-So-Stories
"The Crab who Played with the Sea
" (never a favourite of mine) and "The Cat that Walked by Himself
" (I think my all-time favourite, and somewhat ironic as I spent much of the morning fixing Quizzy with a new cat door!).
[PS, all my audio and video children's stories are available at http://PodBible.com/children/
including especially the Just So Stories
and several Beatrix Potter - though these last should not be downloaded in Europe for copyright reasons!]
The only "work" I've done is to rearrange the assessments for my postgraduate course on Bible in an Electronic Context
instead of an "evaluative review" I'm asking for a "reading blog". I found this worked very well with an undergraduate class, and it will also get the students using the technology from the start, and raise interesting questions - I hope - about the medium.
Sadly (though, the open source, Moodle
will have a blog feature from version 1.6, due shortly) Cecil version 7.0.10 still does not. So we'll just run them in the discussion forum feature, means comments look like posts, unless I can persuade the students to make each post a new thread...
BTW if you are fed up with these rambly and occasional posts, normal blogging is likely to resume in a wee or three once marking is over!
