A short while ago I looked at the value of setting competitions and of celebration (see Lessons from the world of sports: #8 The rule of celebration). In this, the fourth part of the mini-series about returning to work and starting the new school year, I’d like to explore this theme from a different angle or two.
I said at the start of this mini-series that I would be exploring the lessons we in the educational ICT community can learn from sports – but here is #8! Well, I’ve always said that there are three kinds of people: those who can count and those who can’t! Anyway, here’s what I have called the ‘rule of celebration’.
In the very near future (read on) I will be running prize draws for the following:* MissionMaker. * Xobni Plus. * Global Conflicts subscription. * Scholastic’s Child Education Resource Bank subscription (UK residents only). * PIMS reporting software subscription.
