What to talk about today?
Goodness: from PISA to Tom Daley, there are lots of stories to look at, from (on a different tack) the HE action to odd but delightful metareporting (Twitter – Guardian-Academic Journal) on academic blogging.
I’d like to make
- some witty mash-up line about at least two of these (“Tom Daley came out yesterday, PISA came out today; I know one piece of news gladdens the heart,” doesn’t do it, really) or
- some deep and meaningful connection between workload and blogging
or at least use the Wittgenstein line as an excuse to remain silent on all these subjects, since they are beyond my ken and I will only talk drivel. But even using that as a line has been trumped by this from poetry rapgenius:
You probably need to read the whole book to get the punchline.
Yes, you probably do.
So here are the Guardian on PISA, the Indie on Tom Daley and the really interesting (and free access) article on academic blogging from Mewburn and Thomson. They can speak for themselves and I should be silent.
