I'm currently working on the next issue of Digital Education, a free newsletter that is now in its 17th year. Some of the items it will contain (I hope) are:
- Recent reports on Computing in England, and the e-safety Green Paper consultation which comes to an end on 7th December.
- Commentary on the latest budget as far as it affects education.
- Book reviews, and a prize draw for a new book for teachers of Computing.
- A special offer from Routledge.
- A spreadsheet 'special'.
- Observations on lesson observations.
- Various other bits and bobs.
I'll be experimenting with a different format, which will make the newsletter less like War and Peace and more like Readers' Digest.
