Diamond Sharp is an online writing project. The blog Diamond Sharp: reading, reflections, poeisis is where I write reviews and other thoughts, mainly about my reading. I have been writing that, on and off, since Septermber 2010. This blog, http://www.fleurdiamond.com has a focus on my professional reading and learning as an English teacher and researcher.
Diamond Sharp: Professional Learning began life as my blog for my studies to become a Teacher Librarian. This was where I pondered such things as ‘information literacy’, and the place of the library in an online, networked world. Despite finding many aspects of the TL course engaging, I did not complete that course. Since then, my life has taken new turns.
I still have an interest in literacy in its many forms and how new communications technologies are having an impact on teaching, reading, writing and learning. With this in mind, this blog is now the place where I engage in writing as a form of reflective practice.
Diamond Sharp — Professional Learning is now a research journal.
