Well, this is odd. Trying to move a file from one place to another is really irritating. I am trying two methods today – Drop Box, and Burn to DVD. I’m seeing how long each one takes, and as my file are large, they are taking rather a lot of time. I’m not really sure how Drop Box works: all I know is that I had to give myself privileges to use the drop boxes on either computer, and that I’ve got it working but I don’t know how. I don’t know how the information is transmitted: I plugged my laptop into my desktop but it’s not recognising it as a hard drive because I don’t have a firewire cable – sputter hiss – so I’m thinking perhaps it is over the dreaded wireless, which is pretty woeful. Maybe I should have been doing this last night. Burn to DVD is much faster.
I have my final interview with one of my participants today, and I’m getting a little nervous. I’m looking forward to the process, but I’ve not fully coded all the data, so I’m having to select excerpts to show the participant that relate to themes of teaching; pedagogy and relationship. I feel curiously underprepared, even though I have spent heaps of time looking at the videos this last few weeks. I have seen all the videos, some several times already, and I’ve decided to select various excerpts but I can’t remember exactly which ones refer to what event. My note keeping has become a little ad hoc – not deliberately, it’s just that I inadvertently left my notebook in the wrong place and now my notes are somewhere else. Annoying.
