I attended a workshop last week about the benefits of blogging in education. You know me … I love to write and blog and link and record and reflect.
That’s my jam.
But what happens when your jam jar is empty? What if there’s no more jam??
One of the things I learned from the workshop is that the moment you begin to feel like you have nothing to say is the exact moment you should begin to write. The reason itself makes a lot of sense.
Blogging is the best way to work things out. Not everything we write down has to be perfect; it just has to be. Usually, the process of writing in a stream of consciousness helps to clarify and organise your thoughts. So this is what I’m doing now: writing down my thoughts about the EE for 2018 and organising everything as I go along. Here’s my list so far:
- Thank you to all of you for submitting your proposals on time. They are now in the hands of the heads of department and are currently being shared with teachers. Supervisor allocations will come out after Chinese New Year break.
2. In the meantime, I’d like you to add an EE category to your digital portfolios (or blogs, as I like to call them). Not sure how to do it? Check out Tricia’s instructional video below:
Over the course of the EE process, you’ll be writing three separate reflections and your blogs are a great place for you to keep track of your own thought process. Also, they will be so easy to share with your supervisor.
3. We hosted a Grade 11 Coffee Morning for your parents last Friday. If you’d like to have a look at what we discussed, you can click below:
What’s your jam for 2018? Leave me a comment below. Maybe we can have a jam-jam.
(That’s a homonym. Deal with it.)
