I’ve been working a lot in the library recently, reading, highlighting and expanding my own personal understanding of the educational theories relating to the teaching and learning in virtual worlds. As the students returned to university, I found that the time I spent in the library was reduced as my teaching increased once again. Tweeting one morning that I would not be in the library was greeted with a reply that maybe I could be replaced with a virtual copy. Interesting since this week’s waffle was going to be about virtually attending conferences.
As well as starting my own Minecraft server and posting to this webpage every week, the time has come for me to start my own academic journey in pursuit of my PhD. Having spent some time…22 years…as a primary school teacher it has been a long time since I have actually studied and I thought that I would like to capture the journey in a series of waffles – oops I mean blog posts.
