I like to learn by doing, I’ve discovered this over time. Mostly from boredom of being forced to learn things through theory and lack of real life practice. I’m not one to tolerate boredom. I learn by doing with STC and I love it. I don’t have qualifications in how to build a community, a [...]
So, after a couple of tweets the other day (thanks @imccowatt and @martialtester), I purchased Weinberg on Writing – The Fieldstone Method (Kindle version is much cheaper!). In it Weinberg talks about Fieldstoning- gathering bits of information/inspiration/ideas/text/etc, logging it in an organised way and perhaps using it in the future for pulling a piece (or pieces) [...]
I have this constant dilema with myself and education. I don’t like the education system – it doesn’t work for me. I can’t stand sitting around being expected to be engaged in stuff for such a long period of time. Over days. Weeks. Years. What’s worked for me in the end is to find my [...]

Some valid points are highlighted on how things are changing with the likes of MIT and London School of Economics offering (or planning on offering) online content, education, discussions, certificates, etc and all free or at a [...]
We’re going on a long holiday soon. Not quite sure how long it will last at this stage…however it does mean that we are ‘unschooling‘ our two wonderful boys – currently aged 5 & 6. Aaron (our 6 year old) is starting to read and write. Ben still has a way to go, he can [...]
Many of us have Pi = 3.14159265… drummed into our heads. There’s probably numerous other extremely other important things drummed into our heads. I remember Pi and doing maths related around to it. It wasn’t difficult at the time. My sons were telling us what Pi was. They’re too young to actually make sense of [...]
I was chatting to a mum today about life as working mother. What she use to do, what she’d like to do. What I do, which took a wee while to explain She described what I do as similar to the child led education approach that our boys experience at Lewes New School. Which is [...]
Ok, so my kids can lay their claim to fame. Their lovely school put a lot of love, energy and hardwork into creating the Changes song by David Bowie. It’s been made into a video and will very cooly be release on iTunes in mid September. How cool is that? You may be interested in [...]
In 2007 just 44% of young people achieved what the govenment considers to be the baseline: five GCSE passes including English and maths…school is dramatically failing, event at this most basic of tasks. Any manufacturer who consistently produced over 50% of rejects would not stay in business for long – source What’s the Point of [...]
I'm Rosie Sherry. I currently spend my time working on building up community and products for the software testing industry.
This includes running the Software Testing Club, a community of software testers. The Ministry of Testing - software testingevents and learning opportunities. And last, but not least, creating a community of freelance software testers over at Test Ninjas.
