Resource Allocation

”Use the resources in the envelope to create a useful tool for a new student at the University of Dundee”. The instruction sounded pretty straightforward, but after the task, I had an enhanced understanding of the variables that affect how easy it is to complete a given task.

Resource Allocation

I recently took part in a resource allocation task which allowed me to reflect on my understanding of how some people have more of a struggle than others when working towards a goal, due to their different resources and opportunities. During this task, I was placed in a group and given an envelope full of […] Continue reading

Take a Wonder into the Woods

As the old favourite goes – if you go down to the woods today you’re sure of a big surprise. After missing my placement lifestyle of being so relaxed and enjoying nature, that and after reading ‘Nearby Nature: A Buffer of Life Stress Among Rural Children’ (Wells and Evans, 2003) – I decided to drag …

Outdoor play in Early Years

For my second week back at nursery, I was asked to spend my afternoon outdoors. This request was met by my delight at the chance to have a look into some more learning in the outdoor particularly as this is an age that I have had no experience working outdoors with. In the nursery there …

My Dad is on Facebook!

Strange educational blog post title – yes. However, after 6 years of protesting how much he dislikes facebook, around a month ago my dad officially joined the digital space and made a facebook account. This shows me just how much we are moving towards a digital age and how much our lives revolve around the …

First day at Nursery!

On Wednesday, as my previous blog post stated, I was off for my first day of nursery for part of my Transition Project at university. The nerves this morning were there a little bit but not as much as the night before. The minute I walked into the school, I was greeted by a lovely receptionist …

The end is near… My Profound Understanding of Fundamental Mathematics

As Semester one draws to its conclusion, I can’t help but feel a bit sentimental on my time in the ‘Discovering Mathematics’ elective. It has been a very enjoyable experience for me and I would encourage anyone who is going into second year to pick it as your elective. It is not about learning complex […] Continue reading

Maths, this is not the end – I promise

Discovering Mathematics, I can honestly say, has been brilliant. Intriguing, eye-opening, shocking. It has left me sad it has reached an end, but I am 100% certain when I say that this is most definitely not where my new-found love for maths ends. Where to start? I selected ‘Discovering Mathematics’ as my elective module for […] Continue reading

Let me speak!

Yesterday, in my place of work, I found myself astonished by the sight and sound of a mother silencing her child. Allow me to contextualise the situation for you.
