Notes & Airdrop are great pieces of tech in class. I particularly like the lack of features in notes allows pupils to concentrate on writing. I encourage pupils to start in notes even if writing that will end up in more complicated app.

I wonder. My old primary school, Sandaig, had a postcard project. Got postcards from all round the world. Kids took photos of them & posted to postcard blog. Head Teacher got scary bill from Getty as they identified one of the blurry snapshots as theirs. Blog Deleted:-(

I really enjoyed your assessment of where you are currently at.

Watched Experience TiddlyWiki Fluency: Creating a Reading List from youtube.com
Because TiddlyWiki is radically customizable and allows you to think in new ways, it can be hard to "get it" if you haven't used it. In this video, I show what it looks like to be fluent in TiddlyWiki by creating a complete, functional application to track books and articles we've read and would like to read, in just over an hour. This video is 100% uncut and unrehearsed, programming mistakes and all. You can learn all the skills you need to do everything shown in this video with Grok TiddlyWiki (https://groktiddlywiki.com​ – coming soon!)

This was just great. I’ve been using TiddlyWiki on and of for a couple of years. I really like it but it has been tricky to really get into it. This was a revelation. Looking forward to Grok TiddlyWiki. In the meantime I’ll go over this video again.
