I am now treating Twitter more like a blog, which I guess it is meant for, where I pull my thoughts together. I had a reason for doing this today.
I am having a two lessons filmed tomorrow and Wednesday for a National Standards Project by some academics from Melbourne University. Some students and myself will be interviewed pre and post lessons. They will put together some clips of my self (and a few other teachers in different states) and show them to a selection to teachers to pull apart our teaching and set benchmarks for standards of teaching to be shared with student teachers.
People have asked me if I am nervous and the answer is yes and no. Like marathons that I run, once I start I will be fine and I will adapt as I need to – all the preparation is done. Also I think it is important to do things like this because if people don’t say yes how will others learn. BTW I have learnt a lot as well going through this process.
So think of me at 2:30 on Tuesday and 10:30am on Wednesday.
Anyway I blogged all my thoughts on this in my Twitter account and it helped me.
