This blog is about my journey at Hobsonville Point Secondary School. I want to regularly tell stories about what is happening in this place, especially stories about the changes that I go through with regard to the teaching and learning processes and my participation in this amazing place.

A SKETCH A DAY IN THE MONTH OF MAY #1
Steve Mouldy says:
This May, I would like to encourage everyone to take part in a challenge. The challenge is to share a sketch every day in May. We can all track each other by using #edsketch15 on our shares (whether it be on twitter, Google+, instagram or whatever social media you utilise).
Inspired by Austin Kleon‘s Show Your Work, I would like to encourage everyone to sketch something they have been reading, thinking about, trying out, observing, questioning, exploring, reflecting on, working on that day.
Sketches are great for this purpose – they don’t take an hour to write (although you are absolutely welcome to craft it for as long as you want). The quality of the sketch doesn’t matter – it’s not our drawing talent we are sharing, it’s our ideas and thoughts. If you are worried about what your sketches look like, perhaps this task will help you develop morecreative confidence over the month as well. If this worries you, this post gives some tips that helped me when sketching thoughts for GTASYD last year.
