The new school

#362: You get to redesign school as we know it from the ground up. Will you do away with reading, writing, and arithmetic? What skills and knowledge will your school focus on imparting to young minds?

Thinking back, I can’t really fault the ways in which my school operated. The only things I’d add are fun things such as learning more unique sports i.e. more dance based or learning how to swim like a mermaid; it would have been nice to learn various words and phrases in more languages; and more digital based/media skills (although back in those days we were just learning how to touch type!).

The excitement never ends

#251: Tell us about the last thing you got excited about — butterflies-in-the-stomach, giggling, can’t-wait excited.

Easy… being able to help out on the new NG KiDS app last week, which is currently in the making. App magazines (and apps in general) have always fascinated me and even though only one member of the team was professionally trained in creating this app, I’ve still been asked to get involved by sourcing appropriate sounds and content to be used in the first issue. I’m hoping that as the issues progress, I’ll be asked to do more and more with it, as I LOVE learning new things!

… but shhh don’t tell anyone!
