Sunday

Cincopa video hosting solution for your website. Another great product from Cincopa Send Files.

Sunday night, once again. Went for a run earlier which was good. The more I run the more I can run. Funny that. New term arrived at TAFE and nearly upon us at UTS. Worked today on research proposal for UTS. The writing I had done for the REV paper turns out to fit quite nicely into the needs of the research proposal. Make sense, really, as the REV paper was saying ‘hey, here is a possibly interesting approach to addressing an interesting problem’ and left off with promise that empirical research would follow. Well, the phd is all about empirical research and so it fits. Will need to get input from my supervisor of course (geez, he is really good at this stuff). Next up for tonite – more coding for labshare proto catalog. Piano, too, before I am done.

Pedagogy

Cincopa video hosting solution for your website. Another great product from Cincopa Send Files.

Assuming i keep going with this writing, there will eventually be a great number of entries regarding pedagogy. note to self: i need to read more Piaget and Dewey; need to learn more about constructivist thought.

Just now i am reading Wong, K. et al., 2007. Teaching experiences with a virtual network laboratory. ACM SIGCSE Bulletin, 39(1), 481. Available at: http://portal.acm.org/citation.cfm?doid=1227504.1227473.

“… benefits to learning from reconciling inconsistencies between different representations and the need to view redundant data as a further verification of the observations.”

This struck me as being quite useful to keep in mind. There are different ways to view things and it is valuable to recognize that there can be myriad representations of the same phenomena.

This is also good:

“Misunderstandings can be quickly resolved if the student is given strategies for recognizing and resolving mistakes, thus increasing their confidence in solving
problems.”

I suppose I try and do this but i will try and be more explicit going forward.

Desirable but not always possible to have a one-to-one mapping of lecture to lab.

Not desirable to have the accidental to get in the way of the essential.

202 Broadway

Cincopa video hosting solution for your website. Another great product from Cincopa Send Files.

Took myself out for a little while this evening. Went downstairs at 202 Broadway where there was a little attended dj thing. Saw my friends Matt, Izzy, and Conrad which was nice. Music was mostly interesting. Is good to be exposed to new sounds and styles. I surely do miss going to Shows . . . doing what i can to find what i can around these parts. Really should go check out a bush doof one of these days. I am reluctant to not have my own vehicle and be traveled out in the boonies.

Walked there and back along Glebe Point Road. The taxis bringing folks home at 1am. The top lights indicating availability are dark as the cabs with tired peeps zoom up gpr. LIghts are ON as the cabs return empty, presumably to go again on prowl around the cbd.

Out and about

Out and about today. Bike dropped for repair estimate. Some time at vic park. Enjoyed the out of doors to be sure. Crisp and chill today. The sky blue. Bright and friendly.

Just done at piano and bass. Now to get at some writing. Some unclarity regarding distinction between ‘purpose’ and ‘aims’ but discussion with professor Lowe yesterday quite helpful in improving my understanding.

Purpose is the big picture objective that the research is to serve. The aims are the specific attainables of the research that contribute to achieving the purpose.
