Stuff that occurs to me

All of my 'how to' posts are tagged here. The most popular posts are about blocking and private accounts on Twitter, also the science communication jobs list. None of the science or medical information I might post to this blog should be taken as medical advice (I'm not medically trained).

Think of this blog as a sort of nursery for my half-baked ideas hence 'stuff that occurs to me'.

Odd (positive) article in the Westcombe News free newspaper about the Greenwich Steiner School

I found this quite strange because the article seems to be uniformly positive yet most of the stuff I've heard about Steiner Schools (not the Greenwich one specifically, perhaps they do things differently there) has been negative, and about how strange some of the ideas are.

The ideas seem so peculiar that I hover between thinking they might be true and thinking they must be anti-Steiner propaganda.

I keep hearing stuff about gnomes, black crayons and straight lines that make me wonder what on earth does go on in the classrooms.

There are a few threads on places like Mumsnet that are still there though it's clear that many have previously been deleted, but googling brings up quite a lot of stuff. I'm honestly not sure what to make of it.

Comments both pro and con are interesting at the end of this article: http://theconversation.com/for-creativity-capability-and-resilience-steiner-schools-work-24763

Comment policy: I enthusiastically welcome corrections and I entertain polite disagreement ;) Because of the nature of this blog it attracts a LOT - 5 a day at the moment - of spam comments (I write about spam practices,misleading marketing and unevidenced quackery) and so I'm more likely to post a pasted version of your comment, removing any hyperlinks.

Comments written in ALL CAPS LOCK will be deleted and I won't publish any pro-homeopathy comments, that ship has sailed I'm afraid (it's nonsense).
