I'm currently working on the next issue of Computers in Classrooms, which is due out today! However, what with juggling between doing paid work, sorting out cats, writing a stupendous article about financial literacy (well, I liked it), and fighting the urge to just get out and enjoy the sunshine, progress is somewhat slower than anticipated.
But it will, I hope, be worth waiting for. Here's what it contains:
- A review of Tagxedo, the Young Pretender to Wordle's throne.
- Some important announcements, of competitions and a new series -- and, of course, the Amazing Web 2.0 Projects Book.
- Let them ask, by Doug Woods, a great article about technology's role in questioning.
- An article about driverless cars, by yours truly. (I haven't thought of a snappy title for it yet.)
- ICT: A whole new world, by teenager Maddi (the only teen I've 'met' who actually enjoys her ICT lessons!).
- The importance of mobile phones in education, by Ethan Davids, another teenager, who is almost biologically connected to his iPhone. Hear what a cell phone means to a teen, from the horse's mouth (no offence, Ethan).
- Becta’s Leading Leaders Network: A Personal Journey, an extended essay by Jeff Smith, a Headteacher.
All that, for the princely sum of zilch, nada, nothing, zero. In other words, it's free! All you have to do is (a) complete the form below and then (b) confirm it by email. It will take a matter of minutes.
And while you're doing that, I will get back to the grindstone, in the hope of getting this out before midnight.
