Those lovely people at WordPress have summarised my first year of ‘A Princpled view’ with this annual report for the blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 3,800 times in 2011. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 3 trips to carry that many people.
Those that know me well are aware I also run a private network for teachers and fellow workers within ISA schools, known as the ISANet, a Blogging career for me that is now three years’ old. The two blogs serve completely different purposes; the ISANet exists to build a digital community around sharing resources, sharing experiences and sharing services, and through this collaborative working develop an understanding of how 21st century learning includes using digital tools. The Google collaboration has been the latest of a series of high profile developments that have assisted many of the the 300 schools within to make considerable progress within elearning.
What this blog has allowed me to share through conversation and argument what I feel a modern, relevant education should be striving for. I have every hope that in 2012, I can double my readership cover the globe perhaps a little more effectively, and ensure that our work within Claires Court Schools becomes even more widely known.
So here’s a promise that 2012 will be the most remarkable year yet in our school’s history (51 years young); notwithstanding the bitterness of the western world’s recession, centres of excellence are thriving, and innovation and excitement permeates our educational atmosphere at the turn of the year. I also promise to keep some of my CCS hyperbole down a bit too. :o)
