Introductions / Re: Hi everyone!

Hi everybody,

It's very interesting to hear what people have been up over the past few years. Seems to be a lot of variety in what people are doing!
 
I've also now graduated and am supposed to be a geologist. As previously mentioned I was applying for PhD's earlier this year, and will be starting on one at the OU in October (had been meaning to email some of you, but only manged to send my contract in yesterday as the wheels of administration turn slowly and I didn't want to jinx until I had sent in the contract!).

I only used as others were and it seemed the most logical smiley to use, the problem is that text doesent have a tone of voice...

Bear in mind that you all need to be talking to each other, to avoid problems arising when one person's plans overlap with another's.

Maybe some planning meetings?
Myself, Animus And Kit are all talking where plans overlap..

I've done some 'thinning out' in the sand box so there should defiantly be room for more plants now...

When you learn with people of your own age you will often find someone of equal are a bit better ability and try and try and beat them often the same people are trying to beat you and you both help each other learn you also learn a friendly rivalry. The other thing with being surrounded with people of your own age is the diversity of opinions and cultures. A typical example would be a English class were your discussing a text, you get people that interpret some actions positively and some negatively.  The other thing i think about home schooling is you don't get the range of knowledge a secondary school can bring, the internet is good however if i want to find out a bit more about positive alpha decay i can go and ask my physics teacher and i can learn about it from someone who understands it completely and if i want to find more out about some aspect of Twelfth Night i can ask my English teacher if i was to do the other way round the chances are they would both be out of there depth. I suppose what I'm trying to say is whilst the internet is good its better to learn from a real person who knows the subject and knows you, and no one person can understand all of everything and it means you can't get the same depth of knowledge.

I think that people today without access at some point to a computer and the internet would be left behind.The sheer amount of information on the internet will promote autonomous learning and I've found it has left me able to go off on a tangent and learn something that i would have never normally come across.
Me here blames this (and Wikipedia) for knowing various bits of A-level (and possibly above) maths, despite being only in Year 10 :P
Me also blames this for confuzzeling people about antimatter and beta decay
