Student-initiated Action

When our Librarian gave me this book it was just one of many in a pile of resources; books about caring for little sisters, being kind to friends at school, and helping older people... All important topics and the students did enjoy them but...…

The iOS WordPress App Editor

The new iOS WordPress app editor is so much better than before. I am not sure when this happened.

It is a vast improvement on the older version that I looked at before, much simpler and a reasonable WYSIWYG experience. 



The only useful feature I can think of that is missing would be an in app image resize to upload photos quicker on poor connections.

Make you own SPLOT

Screen Shot 2015-03-10 at 09.38.01

Like anyone with any sense I read Alan Levine’s blog religiously. It has given me more ideas to think about and play around with than any other site on the Internet.

The other day I read Share Images By Email to SPLOT Collector (this post is now well down the post list as Alan blogs like a manic).…
