  • Lots of the stuff is cool, fun, exciting, highly motivating, what ever adjective you choose. But… what educational purpose is it serving?
  • Pays to have a plan. Plan A, B & C are even better. Purposeful Relevant
  • Not sure if you’re coming or going? So much out there? Not sure what to do? Mixed messages. Limits/Brick Walls
  • There’s so much available and so much happening so fast. Huge expectation. Overwhelming for everyone. Constant change. Flit from one thing to the next.
  • Sometimes you’ve just gotta sit down & play. Kids & adults. e.g. of sandpit time in my class. Sandpit time for myself.
