Idle Thoughts

Who reads blogs these days?

I tend to read blogs entries posted in Twitter

Although I subscribe to lots of blogs, I rarely open my RSS reader - feels too much like work

And so I miss lots and lots of thoughts and ideas

I use Twitter - but is that a simple replacement?

Who reads my blog? What is it for?

Ideas from TMNE09

Independent Learning


Early GCSE Entry

Presentation tools

Film Making

Neural Impulse Actuator

Media Ideas

Century of Faces


Students filming/editing school events

Relative merits in comparison with ELGG and Edmodo?

If website hosts clearly inappropriate content, then the rule HAS to be no

Creativity in Coursework

Coursework generally consists of Word documents, maybe with the odd PPT thrown in

Is there an alternative method of engaging students?

Lots of alternative presentation tools, but do exam boards accept them?
