Adam Black on ‘Supporting pupils who stammer’.
Welcome to Episode 5 of the Loose Learners on Radio EduTalk. The next episode will be on September 6th as we are taking August as our summer break.
Without further ado we need to explain our poster for this episode as it is a little bit of an in-joke between the two of us and some of our regular listeners. We always intend to run for 30 minutes and as we meander through our topic, an hour has gone by. We promise to ourselves that the next episode will be 30 minutes and so far we have failed to achieve this goal. So the poster was a little joke on the idea that we have a special and ‘stretchy’ 30 minutes for each of our episodes.

On this episode we continue talking about social media and exploring what it means to ‘brag’ online and if those reading our posts can read our intention when posting. It is complicated – when is it not complicated with the internet of ours?
When posting we ourselves may not be fully aware of our intent. We may have mixed objectives – I want to share, not brag, but I am a little proud of this and hence I want to post it for all to see with a dash of bragging.
