I’m not sure why I do it1. In recent weeks I have:
- spent an entire day signing every pupil in the school up to the World Maths Day website and collating the maths sets so that password can be distributed
- created Wordle quizzes based on the text from famous books for World Book Day, along with an online quiz using a Google Form which I still haven’t marked
- recorded around a dozen Moodle screencasts for my colleagues
- created resources for a Y9 options evening tomorrow
- set up an interactive (Google) calendar for the school website
- made a variety of subtle, but time consuming, alterations to the school website (you update an old logo and find the page it links to is subsequently out of date, and so you have to rewrite a whole page of text…)
- attempted to enter into negotiations with a major film studio over the use of 50 seconds of soundtrack
- co-created a wiki about copyright implications in education
- installed, edited, tweaked, hacked, advertised, recruited for and moderated a school-wide blog
And yesterday I decided that the visiting Cafe Scientifique visitor ought to be recorded and podcasted, rather than simply blogged about.
So here I sit, at 11:10pm, devising disclaimers for our guests to fill in, trying to work out whether I can use PodPress with a WPMU installation, worrying that the media tech returns the mixing desk tomorrow as promised – and I’ve yet to actually do any of the curriculum planning or marking that i need to get done for tomorrow.
Oh, and I had an idea today to gather some obsolete laptops and start a school Linux User Group.
I think I need a Time Turner…
1 Of course I know why I do it. I love doing it!
