Science – how I think it should be.

If you have been keeping up to date with my weird life series on my personal blog, you will be aware that my brain is quite unique – I was going to say at times, but I think that should probably read all the time! This morning my brain is being rebellious! It has just written the script for my live show on Monday (20:00 on Youtube – plug plug) and it has decided to go into distraction mode! I’m trying to tame it with some caffeine but I would just like to establish a disclaimer now so, if this is your first waffle of mine you have read, please be reassured that the content is usually better…no comment please from you regulars!

But how important are the audiences within learning? Are they already captivated or should we be working on gaining more? Well that is what this week’s waffle is all about.

Confused and update about Waffling.

I have a couple of ideas ready to go with, but due to the time spent doing marking, I’ve not been able to put these together properly so this week is more of a general waffle about nothing in particular. So if you are marking, or planning or just sat with nothing to do, then put me on the speakers or grab a coffee and let’s have a catch up…
