A couple of weeks ago, I missed out on my early morning run. I decided to instead go for a run in the afternoon, taking my usual companions of iPhone, arm strap for the phone (with headphones of course), and our Siberian Husky. Already I was experiencing what I believe is amazing technology; listening to
I'm sure if you surfed the web for 'website creation/builders', Google would spit back millions of hits and an endless supply of possibilities. Wix, however, popped up on my FaceBook feed a few days ago and I thought it would be worth sharing. It looks to be a fairly straight forward process of creating a
I am not quite sure how HaikuDeck managed to elude me for this long, but I tried out this presentation software recently and found it solved many issues I have with presenting with an iPad. If you are a teacher who has ever set a presentation task for students, you will be well aware of

Here is a tool worth checking out. Murally allows you to create an image-rich mindmap and invite other users to contribute. Murally logs each user's contributions, and even allows space for a little chat window. This could have some interesting uses in the classroom, but also has potential for teachers to collaborate with each other.
Data Visualisation at it's best. Here is a great little project to follow, with their first product called 'Tree of Life'. This website allows you to explore the tree of life in a completely new way: it's like a map, everything is on one page, all you have to do is zoom in and out. Enjoy!
If you are looking for a way to print from your iPad, it can be a little tricky trying to find a printer that does the job. AirPrint Activator from NetPuting is a great way for getting this done fairly easily. It's not ideal for large scale (Schools, Corporations, etc), but for single classroom or
