At last...something!

I've managed to collect some limited data and produce a final report. I'm a bit disappointed with the way the project unfolded as I had a few problems (which you can read about in the report).

My main issue now is that I've been working on the report in a Word document (as we currently have no internet access at home) and now I've come to upload/copy it into Google docs (on my mum-in-laws computer!!) all the formatting has messed up and the graphs have gone.

C'est la vie.

I'll email the report to Bronwyn but here is the link to the not very clear version.

Apologies for not being around much lately (life got very busy) but I hope I kept up with everyone's projects and made comments. Thanks for all the feedback from those who kept up with my progress.

Summary of Evaluation Plan

Here is my presentation summarising my evaluation plan. It's about 6 minutes long and took me hours! Had a couple of technology glitches which slowed me down and then spent ages re-doing the audio - not used to hearing myself present and spent a lot of time 'umming' and 'errring'. I then discovered the cut button in Audacity (the audio software I used) and spent a while cutting out the 'errs' and 'ums' - although got bored of this so there a still a few in there!! I suppose this is another online skill that will improve with practice.

Slow progress with presentation...

I'm part way through creating a presentation to summarise my evaluation plan. Sorry it's not up and running but I've found it a bit tricky to find audio software that works on this machine! I'm now using Audacity which seems to be fine. Hoping to get it finished today/tomorrow.

I won't be collecting my data for a few weeks as the students are currently on exam (study) leave! They come back on 11 June so I'll hopefully be doing my observations and surveys shortly after that. I'll then rush to catch up with everyone :)

It's been a while...

I'm concious of the fact that I've not done much blogging or commenting lately so just a quick note to say I'm getting on with the evaluation plan - hoping to finish it over the weekend if possible. I've hit a slight snag in that half the students go on study leave from next Tuesday and the rest join them in another fortnight. Desperately hoping I've not left it too late to get access to some kids!
