Well another school year is not that far off and I have been doing a few things this week to get myself back into a bit of a routine. In fact 3-4 hours each day so far-timetables, Intel unit updates, Early Years Numeracy data and other odds and ends which will start the year off more smoothly. Once my list is done then I might be bale to do some planning for my teaching.
One of the things I want to have a close look at this year is student engagement and how we can use games and hand held devices to engage students and perhaps also to reduce absenteeism at our school. I will be having a look at any research I can find for the use of games such as WII and DS. Derek Robertson comes immediately to mind, so I think I'll give his website and blog a look.
