I’m Not Blogging

I promised myself that I wouldn’t blog tonight. I need more sleep than I’ve been getting. So this is just to say that I’m not blogging tonight. I’m really not.

While I’m not blogging, here are some random bits of nothingness that are running around in my head:

  • Don’t keep telling me there’s no one right answer. I’m tired of it, and usually that’s obvious anyway. It’s sort of like “um” while waiting for students to respond.
  • At IDEO they say “fail frequently so you can succeed more often.” I likey…
  • I’m apparently not a “feeling” learner (according to the learning styles assessment we did today). I’m a converger/assimilator. Don’t make me role-play or expect me to learn too much from the emotion-centric experiences of others. (But somehow I’ve got to figure out how to integrate this type of thing into my instruction or I’ll alienate all the Divergers out there who don’t care a wit for my thinking/doing/thinking method of learning.)
  • Randy Rocks! Can we get him to come to Carleton and talk to us? Please? Pretty please? Though it’d be a pretty penny to fly him in from Hawaii, I imagine… (I’m so excited that I get to be in two sessions led by him tomorrow…. I get all school-girlish-happy to be in his classes and be allowed to have fun while learning.)

Tomorrow morning we present our 5-minute chunks of a class and get critiqued by the group. Wish me luck!

Okay, no more blogging. Must do homework and then SLEEP.

    First of all, you are so totally blogging. ;)

    Second of all, if you want a more highbrow (and less optimistic) version of IDEOs “fail frequently so you can succeed more often,” you can go with Samuel Beckett: “No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.” (From Worstword Ho, apparently, but I first encounterd it on Tom Phillips’ anti-portrait of Beckett.)

    I know that I would be able to respond appropriately if I could only find my brain. Unfortunately, my brain has gone into hiding today, so I all I can say is, “cool,” which much of a response.

    I’ve been doing a lot of right-brain stuff today, so maybe I should draw you a picture of your comment as my response. Too bad blogger doesn’t do that. :)
