My technology issues have continued today meaning I've been at work for three extra hours doing silly things like sticking cut out names to bits of paper so I can have classlists next week. Thanks to a fabby Father-in-Law Louis now has all four wheels on his buggy attached and working, which is one thing off the list :-)
One very cool thing that has been happening this week though is I keep getting sent Amazon parcels from random strangers!
A while ago I read a free electronic copy of "Little Brother" by Cory Doctorow. I read it on my phone while on the bus.
Cory doesn't want payment for the e-book version of his novel, instead he has a list of schools and libraries who want copies. If you enjoy the book, buy one for a good cause.
I asked for our school to be added to the list. We got added a couple of weeks ago. This week I've been sent FOUR copies!
My plan is that I can use this to teach the geeky tech stuff in the NC Digital Media Computing through reading the book and discussing the issues that come up in it. 'Literacy Across Learning', here we come!
