February: My favourite moments from 2006 on edu.blogs.com

February was the month of podcasting throughout Scotland and England for Mr Mc. It was also the month of huge mileage for Scottish CILT: about 2400 miles a week.

2nd: I present my first conference by Skype in Winnipeg.
8th: Will decides to go it alone.
9th: East Lothian works out how to tread the line when blog posts and comments aren't what was expected. It proved a lesson which set the Authority out from the rest in terms of listening to its pupils, staff and parents.
22nd: I went to school in DGS and enjoyed seeing what made students love podcasting so much.

January: My favourite moments from 2006 on edu.blogs.com

Feel free to go back and read these, leave some comments months on or simply just let me indulge myself as I reflect on a year gone by. Why this self-reflection and navel-gazing? Blame John.

8th: Mega long post on why we really must give the Identity 2.0s of our kids a place in their learning and why we need to get more social in learning, too.
11th: I lose it with people who say they "don't have time" to learn something new.
13th: Wes, Darren, Miguel and I do our first Over the Pond and Through the Fiber podcast. We wondered whether Web 2.0 was overblown and quickly came to conclusion it wasn't. Wow. What a prediction ;-)
152572921_cdbafa2797_m 17th: The University of Strathclyde through David Muir bite the bullet and teach Web 2.0 technologies to their postgraduate trainee teachers. I was grateful to be invited along for a talk and see several student bloggers join the ranks.
28th: I kicked off the ScotEduBlogs wiki to try to keep tracks on the (relatively few) blogs that were creeping up here and there. Over the next year the number of blogs listed would grow from around half a dozen to nearly 300 (including the East Lothian ones not yet listed) and from three Local Authorities to all 32 (and Shropshire ;-)
