NEW POST: On Being a Teacher – A Reflection on Identity

Coming up to three years out of the classroom and not being based in a school, I am often left thinking about what this means for my identify as 'a teacher'. Although I still work within education, my current title of ‘subject matter expert‘ seems a long way from the classroom. This is something that I have been pondering for a while.


Maybe Zombies? Maybe mind-control? Or maybe just not real? These are some of the questions grappled with in @epilepticrabbit 's novel. It is a meandering journey of Maggie's inadvertent trail of carnage and excess. It touches on technology, power, perspective, privilege and truth. However, it is all a reminder that it can all be gone in a second.

@dajbelshaw wondering if you can remember the newsletter directory where you can add your newsletter?

Interesting conversation on as always @dajbelshaw and @daibarnes

I think my question/concern about ‘gaming’ is the use of time? With my limited downtime, I choose to use it for different things. I am sure I am missing out.

Also, enjoyed the short discussion about digital parenting at the end. It definitely feels like a conflicted space.


Can I clarify @dajbelshaw, are you arguing that ‘blogging’ is long dead and it is time to move on? Just wondering or maybe confused.

@mrkrndvs @daibarnes Thanks! Have replied. In addition to that comment, I'd always be slightly suspicious of someone whose main form of income depends on them occuping a certain point of view or having particular opinions. Myself, and friends included!
