The new term has begun and the focus of this final year is very much on research methodologies and methods in preparation for the dissertation. I've still no idea what I'm going to focus on...which is a tad worrying, however, I have started to make some notes and looked back at year one, to see if anything jumps out as a possible area of interest.
Blogging has obviously captured my imagination to a certain degree, although I know that this blog is not great and doesn't have the focus Lankshear & Knobel (2007) talk about. However, I've created one for work to support my PCGE/Cert Ed. students and I thing that's going to work a little better, as it has a clearly focus. I think I'll try and keep this blog going, even if it's just to reflect on stuff...who knows.

More to follow....
Found it ! I've seen it before and thought it was hilarious, but it's now a well known well established example of a meme...the unforgettable sound of Bush and Blair and My Endless Love !

We're now into Module 3 of the course and are currently considering definition of culture and the development of popular culture. Reading some interesting stuff and re-visiting some old friends eg.(Gramsci, Also, enjoyed looking at a useful website on various theorists www.theory.org.uk that are portrayed in a set of trading cards, very novel!

Will I be brave enough to follow suit at some point soon ? Now there's a challenge !

Having now finished my small scale study into blogging, I'm really going to try and develop my blog a little more. One of my main tasks is to learn how to add some additional features, as well integrating more photos, videos and even podcasts.
The original focus for the blog is my MA in New Literacies and this will continue, but I am now interested in developing a work related blog and I need to decide whether to integrate it into this site or create a new blog !
Watch this space !

So, bearing that in mind, I plan to work on developing my blog further in the coming months and hope to incorporate some additional features, once I'm techy enough to do so.
Clearly, the focus of my blog at present is centred around my MA in New Literacies (with the odd slip into other life matters) but I hink I'm quite keen now to develop another focus in the future around my work, the question is whether to set up a new blog or gradually let this one transmogrify in something different ?

So, some changes to make, but overall I'm on the right track, which comes as a major relief. I'm now really looking forward to the next module and doing some more serious reading (which was undoubtedly the best part of the assignment work for me).
New Years resolution is definitely to keep on blogging in 2008 and get some photos and video clips, podcasts etc. uploaded (if I can suss out how to do it !) and up the links a bit more.
