“La acción es la clave fundamental de todo éxito.”
Forgive me bloggers, for I have sinned .. It has been 20 or so months since my last blog post and for that I am truly sorry.
A lot has happened since then .. highs (my first A*s in GCSE Spanish), lows (Ofsted) and much, much else in between.
Attending #ililc4 last weekend, and seeing first hand many of the amazing teachers who inspire me day to day, week to week as I lurk on the twitter sidelines, has given me renewed confidence to put out there a few thoughts without feeling like a right necky wazzock who should know her place.
Having watched #ililc3 from afar it was great to get there in person this year. I pretty much loved every ‘flipping’ minute of it. So I spent a few quiet moments today, while manning our school ‘Reflection’ room … err … reflecting on the weekend, and what its lasting legacy could be.
So here goes … I have decided to taking on board Rachel Smith’s Zen –like advice to her revising Y10s students which she shared at the Show and Tell.
I am setting myself a 20 day challenge to use at least one new #ililc4 idea every day (starting after half term so I have time to chuck them all in a google doc via a fruitmachine random generator thingy then appsmashingly mark them all using flubaroo or somint! :p) .. oh and hopefully I’ll blog about how I get on too!
I would love to say I have the support of my family on this one but since returning, my non-tweeting husband has called me a geek on pretty much a half-hourly basis, but he has given Twitter another go and I am sure he will end up loving it as much, if not more than, I do.
Wish me luck peeps!
Oh and here’s the Hip Hop Phonics presentation from the Show and Tell if you want to have a nosey! 🙂
