Pomodoro Time Management – an article from Medium.com

Trying a new way of managing my time. Not sure about the ‘clickbait’ style heading, but the theory seems interesting.

I will report back at a later date on my success – or otherwise.

How to work 40 hours in 16.7



Thought I would share my new Prezi.

It’s hard to use a new tool unless you’ve got something specific to make using it. So I designed this Prezi to use with my Year 9s next year to facilitate a conversation about Goalsetting, and hopefully help the students to think more deeply about their personal goals.


Week 1 – Obstacles: My PLNs: Goals

The only obstacle to my using Web 2.0 tools is time! If only I didn’t have to work then I would have plenty of time to fluff around on the Web and check things out.

I have two current personal learning networks – Facebook: which I use to contact friends, students, authors and illustrators, and OZTLnet: which is the online network of Australian (and overseas Aussies) Teacher-Librarians. Both are brilliant, and cover both aspects of my interest – Libraries in Schools, and books and people. I was on OZteachers but found that I got too much Maths and Science stuff, so I unsubscribed.

My goal for this program is to use a few more Web 2.0 tools (Twitter, Ning, Wiki, etc.) This term I would like to be proficient at using Web 2.0, to the point where I can confidently share the information with colleagues. And by the end of the year I would like to be blogging/ writing on a regular basis – maybe every 2 or 3 days. I find that having a tab for my Fun Fair blog means that it is right in my face, and that reminds me to use it more often, so I will use that method for this blog too.
