This week I have mostly been trying to fix the blog, trying to sound like I know what I’m talking about in an essay, writing stuff on blogging and learning the bull fiddle (the musical instrument, not the agricultural practice).
I had the pleasure of attending the ePortolio Scotland conference, run by JISC Regional Support Centre for Scotland North and East on the 10th September. It was nice to be back in my home town gain but I went mainly to catch up with new developments in the eportfolio and PDP field.
Here are a few personal highlights…
This conference was held on the 12th May at the University for the Arts, London. Here are two separate personal reflections from the event, one from myslef and the other by Lindsay Jordan.
How can students who have not been able to develop their skills in reflective learning be expected to know how to express themselves in a meaningful way. The UK school system seems to work against students getting into the habit of thinking introspectively about their learning.

This is the second post based on thoughts after the Centre for Recording Achievement’s conference on Personal Development Planning and ePortfolios.
As with most of these things I’ll be coming to different conclusions about how I felt about the JISC 2010 conference for a while but this is how I see it 48 hours after the conference itself. You can catch…
It struck me earlier this week how much of a role technology has played in helping us with our move to new jobs in Newcastle. Some aspects were fairly bland but others have been a little more interesting. I thought I’d itemise the different ways and then draw some tenuous conclusion as I usually do.
