  1. Getting scarily close to Summer and our entire new network setup.

    by , 22nd April 2012 at 09:44 AM
    I'm confident enough to say it'll work well. But there's always that little nagging doubt in the back of my mind; the bit that says OK, this was my idea and the majority of implementation and testing is down to me and me alone. If it goes wrong, I'll never hear the end of it!

    Anyway, after many successful years of CC3 (I only joined about 16 months ago, personally though) our school has decided to take the bull by the horns and update just about everything. A choice that started in ...

  2. Money in Schools (ICT and generally) aka Vanity Projects

    by , 15th January 2012 at 11:23 AM
    This blog post comes courtesy of a thread elsewhere on Edugeek as well as ideas brought up from one of the schools I support.

    I'll start small. A couple of weeks ago, one of my HT's attended training at a local academy. This academy rolled out iPads for all it's pupils. Naturally he liked the look of this but with a diminutive budget, asked what I could do along the same sort of lines but for half a class.
    The logistics were easy enough, just under £6k buys 16 ipads, a dock/box/sync/charger ...

  3. WARNING - Non educational/geeky rant inside

    by , 4th October 2011 at 09:00 PM
    I rarely blog or speak too much of personal experience outside of the world of geek-dom, because it generally makes me uncomfortable.

  4. Apple. Love or loathe...

    by , 20th June 2011 at 11:30 PM
    I think most people are already well aware of my opinions of Apple as a company, and sometimes this also derides confusion as to whether I also "hate" their products too, so maybe a little detail without a thread are in order, for those that care to read.

  5. The Cloud (Whether it's iCloud or just normalCloud)

    by , 12th June 2011 at 03:06 PM
    First blog post, but this is a subject I don't feel comfortable butting into other threads with or a forum thread of it's own, It's entirely opinion and as a result, people are free to reply with their own opinions or ignore it

    My thoughts on "The Cloud" have always been fairly negative, and it's highly unlikely my opinion will change on it until the UK's internet infrastructure is 1. up to it and 2. when 1. is able to do away with the home computer as a fat client. ...
