Ready to get started...

One of my twin daughters is now all married... and all the family is gone. So - now I can get started on learning more about blogs, wikis and other such things that I've heard about but have never really used.

It was a lot of fun - but parents were forced to sign up with Facebook in order to follow the blog. I would… Continue

Improve school communication with P2 for Wordpress

I've worked in a tiny middle school with nine classrooms and 180 students and I've worked in a large middle school with four floors and just under one thousand students. In both schools, communication was an issue. How do you make everyone aware of everything? Administrators can get on the public announcement system every time something comes up—but that wears on everyone's patience relatively quickly and if I'm in the bathroom or out getting a cup of coffee, I still didn't get the… Continue

Students from Bath University are using a computer car-racing game to help them to learn the principles of engineering.
