K12 Online Conference

K12 Online is now just about over, but of course all the presentations are still available to view.  There's a great wealth of materials to work through.  I was involved in the selection process for the Classroom 2.0 strand , and am delighted with how it has worked out.  So much to look at, so little time...

Wedding Present at the Liquid Rooms

Last night we went to see the Wedding Present play at the Liquid Rooms in Edinburgh - the centrepiece of which was a seemless performance the the entire "George Best" album. It was a memorable night!  Dave Gedge was on good form, and it was great to see so many old faces from the late '80s Edinburgh Indie scene.  Weird, though, to be at a gig with so many people of my age!  I think the baby sitters of the Lothians had a bonanza night last night :) I was slightly disappointed that Gedge didn't play my personal favorite - "Interstate 5", but apart from that I couldn't have asked for more.

Music Camp

At the last minute, I was asked to join the school music camp in Biggar.  Getting organised  in a hurry was a bit frantic, but I am so glad that I got the opportunity.   Someone said that happiness comes not from having things, but from being part of things, and my experience at music camp reaffirmed this for me.  It was a wonderful experience!  I was humbled by the talent of the youngsters,the music teachers and the instructors, and felt very privileged to have the chance to play along with them. I'm too exhausted to describe it properly, but I'd like to say a huge thanks to everyone involved for making it such a great couple of days.
