Homeless blogging

Homelesswwithlaptop We talk about the digital divide making internet use in education difficult. Fair enough, but I've always believed that where there is a will there is a way. At Musselburgh I worked with one internet computer for months, and then one projector was added on. It never moved beyond that technically but I borrowed, begged, stole and applied for grants to get things improved. Our department now has an individual teacher laptop, a classroom computer, a projector in every room and some interactive whiteboards.

We are relatively privileged compared to the homeless who blog. They have a passion and they do everything they can to write and be heard. Now, what's stopping you?

Update: edu.blogs.com is now the top Google result for 'homeless blogging'. Why?

School leaders and innovators struggle to make the most of educators' and students' potential. My team at NoTosh cut the time and cost of making significant change in physical spaces, digital and curricular innovation programmes. We work long term to help make that change last, even as educators come and go.
