  • Blog Post: Last week at BETT 2008

    Last week I was very quiet on the blog - mainly because it was BETT week, when 29,000 of the UK's most enthusiastic educational ICT people gather at Olympia for a few days.

  • Blog Post: Out in the blogosphere...good education blogs

    Okay, like "mashup", "blogosphere" is another one of those made up words. So I promise to return to the English language when everybody gets back to school in September.
