Hi, I’m Bec,
I’m a micro-homesteading, small-business owning, musician, crafter, novice ceramicist, writer, aspiring podcaster, and enthusiastic learner of new things. I’m always trying to find new creative languages in which to express myself.

Thanks for joining me.

  • Searching for Play – Gamification in Education
    When I was 20, many moons ago, I attempted to study online while working. The world was a very different place, and while my university at that time assured me they had a ‘state of the art’ online learning system, what that really meant was that I got sent paper packs of information, and had to log on weekly to do a quiz, this quiz then got emailed to my tutor who would mark it manually and send it back. There was no online in-person seminar situation, no instant feedback, just discussion boards… you’ll be pleased to know that University subject discussion boards have always been a ghost town, that’s nothing new.
