Tod Learns to copy stuff fun, interesting and inspiring… I had a wee go:-)
A wee bit more grist for this mill:
A Letter of Recommendation In the Age of Zoom – McSweeney’s Internet Tendency
found via Friday 16 October, 2020 – Memex 1.1
Children whose outdoor play areas were transformed from gravel yards to mini-forests showed improved immune systems within a month, research has shown.
Not too surprising except for the speed but another reason to learn outdoors.
Now with speaker and microphone!
Same great features, easier ways to use sound and touch to get creative in the classroom
More features, including easy ways to take AI and ML into the classroom, will be released throughout 2021. Watch this space.
Working together on the latest BBC micro:bit
I’ve been using micro:bits for a few years now and these look like great additions, especially the sound in and out.
Given we have a good number in school already I doubt we will get new ones so having a bit of latest kit envy.
The illustrations on the page make the boards look gigantic.

EU Code Week 2020 – Quick Start to Coding with Swift Looks great Steve.
website to serve you the best/latest content from the #microbit community more regularly.
You cannot connect with students or understand their learning if you can’t see them. And nobody can be expected to share ideas that are important to them to group of hidden faceless peers. If you want students to talk, you’ll need cameras on.
A lot of good pushback on this in the replies. I certainly didn’t find the lack of camera a problem during our spring/summer lockdown. At that point Teams in Glow did not let pupils use cameras. I liked that as it meant I didn’t have to think about it.
Cameras off could help with privacy, bandwidth and possible feeling a bit more comfortable the teacher is not watching your every move and counting the toilet breaks.
Yeah, I think people somehow keep forgetting that there is literally a whole pandemic.
I don’t hear from a kid for a week and they pop back in and I tell them I missed them and am thrilled to see them.
“There was some stuff.”
Yup. Love you; glad you’re here.
Teachers will have to wear face masks at all times, as will pupils over the age of six. Classrooms have been furnished with single-person desks and placed 1 metre apart. Staff and children will have their temperature taken on arrival, while several hand-gel dispensers will be placed around school buildings.
Listened to @KateClanchy1‘s Poetry activities for schools: The Table by Edip Cansever ripped from YouTube. Which is great. Kate Clanchy uses poem ‘The Table’ to inspire pupils to create their own poems. Loved the poem and read to my class this morning.
