Gulp! This weekend is the first Blended learning course, which I am helping to run….behind the scenes, things are hotting up. I am arranging delivery of a Promethean board and a Smart board. I have to stick up my Mimio – a portable Interactive whiteboard  - on the side of an ordinary whiteboard to make it interactive. Will it work?

The weekend course came about because my presentations only ever input KNOWLEDGE.: "What’s this?" At the end, teachers came up and asked: fine – but what about SKILLS? How do we get hands-on with this stuff (like Dictaphones). So, the weekend is for trying thing out. Mind you, you can have both knowledge and skills, but it has been said that the most important element is ‘ATTITUDE’ (and the underlying beliefs they show). Luckily, we expect that if you do come on a weekend course (we have 12 participants), you are already slightly technophile, or at least somewhere ‘In the middle’ – a position sometimes called ‘healthily sceptical’.

Wish me luck! I’ll blog (and maybe even ‘tweet’) about the course....
