Onwards And Upwards!
I was flicking through the schools blog engine today and spotted a new blog… and I’m really pleased to see it. Following in the footsteps (or should that be paw-prints) of East Lothian’s ‘GuineaPigMum‘ I am delighted to let on that Perth & Kinross now has its very own ‘Random Mum‘.
Random Mum’s first post is actually a challenge to the pupils as she tries to come to grips with the impact that exterraneous influences can have on homework. I suspect that the answers will depend on the age of the person answering (and also on whether they are sitting the exams / teaching the course / or cleaning up after a messy teenager!)… but it is a question that deserves a bit of thought. How do we weigh up the impact of external factors on the nominal ‘multi-tasking’ generation? Just how conclusive is the evidence? And how do we weigh up our gut reaction that you can’t concentrate with music on… when the research suggests that classical music can have a positive impact?
Time for you to have your say… but don’t do it here… nip over to Randon Mum and say hello to a very welcome parent blogger!
