When I got up this morning and went out to defrost the car to drive for my morning coffee and blog writing session, the sun was shining, the air was cold but crisp, frost covered the cars and the Minster bells were ringing in the background. For a moment, I actually thought it was Christmas day again! but then I suddenly realised that it was targeting setting day…oh no. As I drove and settled down in my usual seat to start typing I titled this waffle the same as the thoughts which were in my mind…so, Let’s do this and be brave and confident about the year ahead.
Learning can happen anywhere and anytime. One of the important aspects of the ‘technology revolution’ was the use of the virtual, online environment to support and enhance learning. These virtual learning environments changed the static webpage to an interactive and engaging learning hub where learners can join and participate within. But have the virtual learning environments had their day and should we bury them in order to move onto other learning platforms? Well that is what this week’s waffle is all about.
