The five minutes needed watch this will not be wasted.
Kilpatrick – Loch Humphrey: A bright sunny day, little breeze & hardly a cloud.
Hawthorn in full flower. A woodpecker flitting.
Cuckoos calling & couple seen in the distance. Plenty of butterflies.
Trees in leaf, just the ash lagging. Bracken & ferns unfurling.
We were lucky to be there on probably the first dry day in a month. In the Golden Hour as the sun was starting to set, the fresh new leaves on the trees shone like stained glass in a cathedral window. The place shimmered with bird song, butterflies and wild flowers.
What a marvellous post.
We has a nice gentle stroll from Dawsholm up the River Kelvin to the vet school and Maryhill Road.
Lovely sunny day, it really feels like summer now. Plenty of butterflies out, orange tips and whites.
Bluebells in the woods along with garlic mustard and wild garlic. Everything green and lush. A few trout rising on the river. Watched a goosander fishing, and saw a heron sunning itself.
Halooooo yourself, queued up for the commute.
Read: The Golden Rule by Amanda Craig ★★★☆☆ 📚 a take on “Strangers on a Train”. This kept me turning the pages but spelled things out a bit too much. I also guessed what was going on even before the big hint.
The tech giant has expressed an ambition to transform education with artificial intelligence, raising fresh ethical questions.
These are technical, ethical, and political issues that should not only be delegated to educators and school leaders to sort out. They need to be addressed at the regulatory level, and through democratic, collective discussion about the future of schools beyond the pandemic.
Much of Study Web parallels more adult and professional spaces that have emerged in the last decade—revered influencers, a bend towards materialism, and inspiration over analysis.
Really interesting post, strangely l’ve listened to some of the ‘music’ videos as background in my classroom of much younger learners.
Study Web is the space students have constructed for themselves in response to the irl system that just isn’t working. Unable to find a place or person to turn to with their academic and career anxieties, they find internet strangers—strange kin—to speak to, or simply share the same space with, online. Lacking the intrinsic inspiration to study for hours each day, online advice and group accountability provide a solution. Feeling isolated, virtual study partners create a sense of fellowship.
During lockdown I occasionally gave my class time to complete a short piece of work. Turning off my screen and playing some music, often the lofi type mentioned in the article. I wonder if having longer ‘working together’ sessions would have been helpful? Did anyone else try this sort of thing with primary pupils?

A bit of outdoor learning in the woods near school today. Looking at trees. Pupil identified birch correctly, told me this was due to birch in Minecraft having same pattern on trunk.
