Blogging from TeachMeet via an Asus Eee PC

So, having spent all day today at the Redbridge ICT Conference, I'm feeling inspired to continue this blog, which has fallen by the way somewhat!
Rather than wait till I get home and am far too tired to even remember that I was going to blog, I'm taking advantage of Bruce Wilson's Asus PC's that are floating around the room, not literally despite how very, very light they are!
These pc's are evidently very cheap as well as tiny! So small in fact that my fat fingers are struggling to get used to the small keys, but I'm sure they're ideal for kids though!
I'll leave it there as people are talking again, but I will endeavour to continue blogging again!

First Half of the Spring Term

First off, apologies for not posting for so long, there's no real excuse other than not quite getting back into it after the christmas break!
So far this year we've continued the podcasting work we started last term, as well as the BeeBot work and introducing some basic mouse skills for pupils with difficulty with their motor skills.
The newest thing we've tried is a trial of Comic Life, a simple comic creator from Plasq. I will put more about it in a seperate post, but the kids have really enjoyed it and its simple and very effective.
