beginning a rumour ...

I have a sneaky desire to begin a rumour that Lectrice, after finishing up this summer at her inner city london school, is coming to Melbourne to do a PhD ... that way we can both be wanker academics/teacher eds!

that's what I heard anyway ...

Working with like minded, intelligent and passionate people, in the 'service' of young people (who sometimes appreciate the efforts and sometimes not) makes all this worthwhile.

How is your work going? Can I read that chapter you've just finished (in confidence of course)? I'll show you some of mine ... ?

Sorry to disappoint you. But it's a great rumour.

I did start a masters in computing in education, but when I got halfway through the year, three things prevented me from continuing:
* it was halfway through the year, and I still hadn't been allowed to be in a room with a computer
* the research into ICT in education was so pitifully thin back then (eg, "people say things via email they wouldn't dare to say to a person's face!" ... surely not!) that I had already been reduced to citing my own articles - and that's just Not Right
* they set me a graded paper entitled "what technology do you think will be invented in the next few years, and how will it help education?" Unbelievable.

So I dropped out, and have felt no desire to sit in a library and cite things since, I'm afraid.

In one sense, though, you're nearly partly right - I am going to NZ this August. But only to sit in the frozen winter with inappropriate warmwear and stare at the bay for a fortnight. :)

Ahh, NZ is lovely - have you been there before?

Your masters experience sounds all too familiar.

Ah, well, another fantasy squashed by another woman ...

No, never. Am off on a largely equatorial jaunt, with two ill advised stays in cold places - Auckland in the middle of their winter, and Nepal while it's snowing. I shall be the one shivering next to a cheap youth hostel heater...
