My Rambling Thoughts on Teaching and Learning

Out of the Gate and Running….

You may know that I’m a runner.  I have been running since the day that I came 10th in my Year 8 school cross country carnival.  To be honest at the time I had just decided that if I made it to the finish line then it was going to be a good day.  Before then I never really thought about running I just did it when we were made to in PE class.  Anyway…  I always find it interesting every new year as I run my usual running tracks (especially on weekends) that the number of people who are out and about participating in their new found love of running.  Now that we are a month into 2012 the number of people out and about is starting to reduce.  As with any resolution to make it a habit you have to keep working on it…

I feel this way about how we work with any new idea…  I regularly read the Tech Transformation Blog and every so often I read something that makes me think about my habits.  Similar to many of the people on my running tracks I get excited and have that initial drive to do something about it and I’m working on it daily until a hurdle stops me in my tracks…

Ideas never run outThe hurdle this week was stuff…  Like every week things happen…  great ideas, good opportunities, problems which need solving and as like every week you go with the flow you extend the ideas, take up the opportunities and try to solve the problems.  I had a week where I know I did lots of things BUT I feel like I didn’t accomplish anything.  Nor do I feel I worked on my goals for the year.  So I guess you could say this year I’ve started out of the gate running full pelt to hit a brick wall I’m hoping that this is just the effect of week 1 of the school year and next week the great ideas, good opportunities and problems which need solving, lead me back to finding the passion I’m trying to find…
