Pretty amazing project, I’ve only dipped my toe in. almost 30 year’s ago I watched Toto the Hero at the movies. It had a great theme song. Over the years I forgot the film’s name about 10 years decided to find the song. Much googling (I was looking for boom) and I eventually found it on Youtube. Today I found it again but sung in English.

I am sure there are a lot more educational used for this amazing collection of digital music.

More Learning from Lockdown 2020. Exhausting change ideas to learn what does and doesn’t work! @FifeCYPIC @Burntisland_PS

Provision of IT equipment to a family to overcome digital exclusion did not increase their engagement with online learning

Not unexpected. But I am finding this series of posters from @FifeCYPIC really interesting. Wonder if they are available as pdfs?

Seeing all over how teachers are using minecraft. Have used it a little myself but only with the free trial use (and with my own subscription) Question...if you had access to minecraft here in Scotland would you use? Poll below. Share ideas of use in thread #TeamMIEEScotland

I’ve used Minecraft edu a wee bit & minetest (free) before that. Both **very** engaging. I do wonder how effective they are for the amount of time spent. I wonder if there is any research? Thinking of some of the lessons.

I've said this a million times. One more time won't hurt. Podcasting was created so everyone can make media. It was designed, deliberately, without gatekeepers. To have a podcast, you have to have a public RSS feed with enclosures. That's why you hear at the end of podcasts, "You can get this where ever you get podcasts."

The suggested punishment is a bit harsh. Everything else rings true.
