I am back in the blogosphere after a very busy holiday. We began with just a few science workshops booked at our local library, but the days quickly filled with visits to and from friends and relatives, days at the beach, and explorations in Brisbane. The fun continued for the adults as we had a night away to see the hilarious musical comedy "Tripod vs the Dragon", which features my current favourite singer Elana Stone (see the link below) as the dragon. It was a fabulous show. In fact I might just do a post about it later this week, and if you're wondering how it could possibly be relevant (aside from the obvious Knight vs Dragon puns - groan), all will be revealed soon!
I am working to establish some sort of form to the substance in the blog, and will be introducing some regular features:
Monday's Experts will review and critique the works of various parenting, educational or social commentators. I've got Michael Grose, Maggie Hamilton and Steve Biddulph in my sights at the moment. Let me know who or what you would like me to read on your behalf too!
RANTonia will give me a chance to let off steam about current or enduring issues that irk me.
Stories from the Chalkface will feature guestbloggers from the world of education, writing about a topic of their choice. If you are a teacher or a teacher type person, I'd love to hear from you.
