Another year has just passed and here I am blogging after more than a month of emptiness. At least I’m still blogging at the rate of at about once a month or Project 12 (not 365, not 52).
Many factors can be attributed to such ‘blogger’s block’. At this moment, I’ve got 2 part-time teaching loads (that’s somewhat equivalent to a full-time load) and a software developer job while being a part-time educational technology graduate student having a study load of 9 units. Some would say that such case is already overload, right? Well, I’m still alive and kicking though after all of the electricity problems last year and the network connection issues this year.
Don’t bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself.
…I would say that I am improving – that my blog is still active since last year despite some drops of page ranks. I am looking forward to better posts this year though. By June, most likely I’ll be taking my research (EDRE) subjects as preparation for thesis. Currently, I’m doing a research about educational computer-based games as a requirement for an Educational Foundations course.
How about you? Do you have a bloggable quote that you can share?
More than a month has passed since I last made an update here. The challenge of doing “Project 365″ is slowly turning into a “Project 12″ instead. Perhaps, this is the result of the electricity situation we have in the UP College of Education and the UP School of Library and Information Studies. The main feeder short-circuited and got burned in the process which means my classes from both institutions were badly affected. I was handling 2 LIS (IT) courses in UP SLIS and 1 EDUC course (Computers in Education) in the UP College of Education.
Right now, I’m attending (and live blogging) Huntahan: A Discussion on the Proposed K-12 Basic Education Program of the Philippines. The Huntahan is being held at the UP College of Education Benitez Theater.
Here are some excerpts from the slides presented by Dr. Muega:
I was busy uploading the presentation slides and handouts of the speakers from the ICTED 2010 Conference (because today’s the last day of the event) on Slideshare when suddenly I stumbled upon the #rscon10 hashtag that was trending from my Twitter contacts on my Tweetie client.
Obviously, just like my post on EduBloggerCon and ISTE Conference, I also searched what the hashtag was all about and then the results landed me on the 2010 Reform Symposium worldwide e-conference. The event was about to end its first day of the online conference. Luckily, I was able to attend the closing keynote by Sue Waters.
So what is the 2010 Reform Symposium all about? This is the description I got from their website:
The Reform Symposium is a free online conference for educators, administrators, parents and students. This year the conference is focused on innovative practices in education and what role these practices can play in educational reform.
I’m now officially enrolled in 2 EdTech graduate majors as stated from my new Form 5 that is automatically generated and filled out by the system. It feels so good that I’m now on my 2nd year of graduate studies! Hooray! I just hope that I’ll get to have the reduced fees privileges/benefits too like most instructors have in the university. But wait, there’s more…
I’ll be handling a Computers in Education course at the UP College of Education! Wish me good luck!
Today marks my 365th day in my school as an educator. Perhaps, it would be cool to have a project 365 of blogging (or perhaps just project 52) just to keep my site from getting outdated. I will try my best to overcome my blogger’s block without spending the time alloted for my other commitments.
