As part of the process I have had to change my focus of my curated collection and also my PLN as I had discovered that I had not addressed the question put forward by my lecturer. It has taken many attempts to get this right and I still am in the dark as to whether I am on the right track.
It seems that this can be a problem with beginning teachers of not fully understanding the true focus of a particular area of the curriculum. It has made me rethink that I need to read all the available information and curriculum documents to make sure that what they are asking I am addressing. It has been a learning process just trying to understand this.
I hope that my blog and curation projects are on track as I would like to now focus on the processes. I am finding from what I have found so far that I need to really think about what I want to teach because there is so much out there.
Connecting with experts can help to refine the process and help me ensure that the information I am using is actually relevant and correct. Having experts also helps me to answer questions that I may not quite understand. It can also show my students that I too am still a learner and have a network of people whom I learn from. Just as they have their teachers at their school.
After these false starts I hope that people begin to follow me and my final (fingers crossed) topic of Plastic: from the past and for the future?
have a great day 🙂
