Look Up in Photos is pretty cool. I’ve been a fan of Pl@ntNet for a while. I still think I prefer Pl@ntNet’s community feel & openness but this looks like it will be useful too.
A walk up to the Finlas reservoir and beyond this morning. Overcast & low clouds, fine rain. Cuckoos. A couple of hares on the way up, 3 on the way back. A hill fox. Tons of tiny wee wild flowers among the grass. Deer ,ravens, & more flora & fauna: walkmap
iPod touch will be available while supplies last
I feel quite sad about this. I don’t think the iPod every got the traction it deserved in the classroom.
Back in the late 2000s I had a click wheel iPod in my class. It was a great device for recording audio on the move. Despite the low quality of recording by class found it really easy to use compared with other recorders at the time.
In 2010 I was involved in supporting a class using 1–2–1 iPod touches, and blogged a fair bit about it I though. They had a great deal of potential for the primary classroom. The introduction of the iPad put paid to that. I still think that a pocketable device might have been useful in school. Reviewing these old posts I found quite a few records of efforts to develop ideas for using webpages for teaching and learning with iPods. I had a bit of fun with that.
In my fantasy classroom pupils would be equipped with iPod touches and MacBooks, maybe the lovely 11 inch Air.

Simple, slow and quiet tale, told rather flatly. Left me feeling slightly depressed.
Spending some time today updating the GlowBlogs embedding content examples, microbit & scratch projects, pdfs and a ton more.
OneDrive woes and fixes – apparently not. I’ve spent a hour or two this evening trying to get some school work done!
Read Young Mungo by Douglas Stuart ★★★☆☆ 📚
The application “OneDrive.app” is not open anymore.
Not the most welcome of messages on arriving at school this morn. Especially when the app will not open. After trying the obvious, installed the new version. OneDrive processing 1000s of changes. Not what I need.
Had a nice walk this morn, full of bird song, flora and cloud.
