Mike here!

‘More unedited content?!’ I hear you cry. ‘Has the boy lost all pretence at quality?!’. Well partly that, but mainly this poor little laptop is just about up to connecting to the internet to upload mp3s. We’ll be home in a few days, with the chonky boi PC for some proper editing. And then you’ll… Continue reading Pedagodzilla at Playful Learning Day 2: Jane Secker and Chris Morrison, their keynote copyright cabaret and waffles! (nearly unedited)
It hurts to put something out without editing it first, but to quote a topical outgoing donkey ‘them’s the breaks’.

In this B Movie special, we’re looking at three delightfully ‘B’ movies that are, if not close to our hearts, then at least in the same postcode – and using them to answer some mini bloody stupid pedagogic questions, including: How do we Short Circuit Mazlow’s Heirachy of Needs? (Ft. Short Circuit) How can we… Continue reading Why are B Movies so good for answering bloody stupid pedagogic questions?
It’s an Olde Stylee episode, with just Mike, Mark and a wee focused nerdy question. Been a while since we’ve done one of these! It’s Dune, Frank Herbert’s genre defining and much parodied space opera, and graduate attributes. Attributes for graduates innit. We had a lot of fun recording this one. Can you tell? Also… Continue reading How did thinking about humanity’s graduate attributes guide the God Emperor of Dune’s golden path?
