Introduction 1. Students learn isolated skills and knowledge, starting with the simple building blocks of a particular topic and then building to more complex ideas. While this appeals to common sense (think of the efficiency of a automobile assembly line), the problem with this approach is the removal of any context to the learning, making deep understanding of the content less likely.

High School eLearning At the end of 2011 I had left my position as e-Learning Director at Wellington College and during 2012 worked as an e-Learning consultant and trainer to a number of schools and e-Learning PD clusters around New Zealand. It was a stimulating year where , having visiting a range of schools, I have been able to observe how different schools have faces similar challenges and adopted a range of approaches to enhance their e-Learning capabilities to advance teaching and learning. This has been informative for me having only taught at the one school during my teaching career until now. Another thing this year has illuminated for me is that I do miss the classroom and the community of the school environment. High School eLearning

Welcome to Flubaroo
I am making my way through John Updike's The Early Stories. The book has been patiently waiting its turn on my To Read book carousel, its very heft causing me to turn right by it several times in favor of something smaller, something less demanding of my fully engaged attention. Reading a writer like Updike, a writer for whom language is more than a transparent covering on the "reality" it evokes, always requires one's willing attention, or there's no point in reading him at all. To make your way through 103 stories and 828 pages of Updike, however, makes one hesitate before finally summoning the commitment to go ahead with it. I have read many of these stories before, but Updike has re-arranged them in the way in which he presumably now wants them to be read, the arrangement that will convey most felicitously what they have to offer us.
