So I hoped to finish my other assignment on Tuesday last week but this didn`t go to plan with life once again getting in the way. I decided to give myself Friday and Saturday night off to refresh the batteries with my life seeming to be a continual loop of the three works: House work, paid work, and student work. Now feeling refreshed and with the laundry in the washing machine I thought I would jump on here and get myself organised to hit the unit plan. So I went through and printed some important documents off. I know having them on a computer saves paper and other things but I find sometimes it is beneficial to have a quick point of reference to look at and ascertain if you are on track. So I now have the following documents
- Assessment outline;
- Annotated sample of me and my family tree unit; and
- The Year 2 History Standard Elaboration.
I feel good and ready to go but I thought I would have a quick peek at my feedly, I find that looking at my PLN often helps me regain focus as well as letting me know I am not alone on this course and others are in a similar boat. I came across Charlotte’s blog post about music. Like Charlotte and Chris, I often find that listening to music allows me to withdraw from the world around me and gain focus on the task in hand. I use Pandora as I find it has far less ads than Spotify. I have a wide range of musical taste but my current are a bit of Aussie Rock and Chris Tomlins (those who don`t know him, he is a Christian singer, I am not particularly religious but I find it a calming entity for study). This being said I know music is not for everyone, my wife for example likes complete silence (she is not as easily distracted by outside noise as I am). So give it a go – it might help. Why not complete the following survey that I created to see how Google Docs works.
