About Me
Formerly a Science teacher, now a freelance ICT trainer and Science Teacher-Trainer. I'm based in the South East of England.

I specialise in Interactive Whiteboards (and associated gadgets) but i am becoming increasingly interested in tech such as blogging, wikis, Virtual Learning Platforms and Twitter.

I'm still at the enthusiastic learner stage at some of these, but willing to find out more.

Smart Notebook for all IWB Users?

Posted on July 2, 2009 at 3:06pm 0 Comments

I wrote back in the Spring about how Promethean were changing the nature of the IWB market with a change in the way their ActivInspire software was licenced so that you could use a cut-down version on other brands of Interactive Whiteboard.

Well it looks as though Smart are now following along similar lines with the release of Smart Notebook Express.

Smart Notebook Express will be released in the Autumn and will allow anyone to access Smart Notebook resources “regardless… Continue

InFocus Liteboard – an IWB replacement?

Posted on July 2, 2009 at 3:00pm 0 Comments

I’ve seen a few IWB-replacement gadgets over the years, but these normally rely on setting up some kind of alternative gadget to pick up pen movement – such as the ebeam, or a camera placed somewhere in the room.

You can see the results of the collaboration here:… Continue

Teacher2Teacher Conference – Canada 2010

Posted on June 23, 2009 at 1:30pm 0 Comments

Just a little bit of advance notice, and some exciting news for me! If you are in or near Alberta, Canada next March then I will be speaking at the Teacher2Teacher conference on 18th and 19th March 2010.

I’m very excited about it since I don’t get to do too many conferences abroad plus I have a real soft spot to Canada (I’m actually heading to Calgary for my Summer holidays later this year). My Canadian friends have advised me to bring my thermals as it may be rather chilly in… Continue

Google Squared in the Classroom

Posted on June 23, 2009 at 1:18pm 0 Comments

Google have recently rolled out a new twist on their search engine in their continued bid for world domination – Google Squared.

Google Squared takes a category and creates a starter ’square’ of information, automatically fetching and organizing facts from across the web and producing them in spreadsheet format. You can then add additional columns and rows to this grid of information (if more info is available)
