A List Of Things To Remember

Sense of unease over failure to discover the perfect App for to-do list resurfaces this afternoon whilst reading blog posts about something The New Generation are calling ‘Knowledge Organisers’. Understand there any number of different interpretations of what a ‘Knowledge Organiser’ actually is (or indeed is not) depending on whatever personal theory of educational enlightenment one is attempting to promote via one’s online presence, but seems to be essentially A List Of Things To Remember.

Ironically this determination to cloak simple concepts in clothes of complexity appears entirely contrary to notion of reducing things to meaningless simplicity that one railed against previously. Take some succour in realising that this is yet another splendid opportunity to Celebrate Contradictions. Do so with a small glass of sherry and another of Ianthe Jerrold’s marvellous detective novels. It is the end of half term, after all.
