In my last year at university in 1993, I had no idea what I wanted to for a career. I was majoring in public policy so a public servant job was probably on the cards. But I didn’t really know what that meant.
Language is dynamic. We create new words for new ideas, objects, and contexts.
A little bit of shameless self-promotion in today’s blog post. We made these for The Critical Classroom (www.criticalclassroom.com). They’re for sale. The little bit we make from sales all helps to support the work we do. Would love if you shared it around.
Isn’t she deadly? Our Goori Advent Calendar is for sale on the Critical Classroom website. When you buy it you get a download that has two versions. One is a colourable one – it’s blank – for the kids to colour in a circle per day. The second is a high quality reproduction of the original painting. It can be printed onto a thickish paper (the one above is on 210 gsm), and then framed.
I know this is cross-posting from another part of my online activity, but bugger it, I’m going to do it anyway, cause I’m a bit excited by this initiative.
We didn’t do a lot of sightseeing, and I really didn’t take a lot of photos. Mostly I think because the landscape was so familiar, it just looks like Cairns – mountains, green, rain, water. I also spent more time just being there, rather than documenting the whole experience. I thought I’d take many more photos and video, but turns out I didn’t want to see the whole conference through lens.
The food was both familiar and strange in Hawai’i.
I’m not sure how to write this post, as I’m not really a traveller, but I’m just going to start. It’s been a few days since I got home, and if I don’t do this now, I’ll have completely lost any travel blogging mojo I might have.
Just quickly reflecting on conference presentations, particularly ones that describe institutional programs.
