Breath in deep and taste that country air!
Up here at 600 metres above sea level you can see for miles, no wonder it has taken me so long to sit down and write a post! I mean check out my view …
Though I guess I should admit to being a fairly slack blogger during the summer break (well in general really). I am not actually a big fan of writing, I would much rather curl up and read a book, so I really must force myself to sit down write. In fact the only real reason I do this at all is because I know I have an audience. An audience who is choosing to read my thoughts and opinions. Maybe even gaining a bit of advice or a few new ideas from my natter about all things great and small in the world of eLearning.
Yep, I write this solely for a purpose, the purpose to connect with my ever patient and kind audience. This of course does make me wonder … do my students feel that there is a purpose behind what I ask them to write? Does ones teacher and class mates make an authentic audience? And if I have answered ‘No’ to both question (which I have), why am I making them do any writing at all? Hmmmm
This blog has helped me find a purpose and motivation for writing, it has given me an authentic audience.
If I give my students a blog, will they also find theirs?
I must say, all this oxygen deprivation is making my head spin!
