Bill blogs as an honest Man, for a that

  Originally uploaded by Edublogger.

Hail, thairm-inspirin', rattlin' Willie!
Though fortune's road be rough an' hilly
To every fiddling, rhyming billie,
   We never read,
But take it like the unback'd up'd file,
   Proud o' her broadband.

When idly govin' whyles we saunter,
Yirr, fancy posts awa' we canter
Upstream, download, till some mishanter,
   Some black blog-hole,
Arrests us, then the scathe an' banter
   We're forced to thole.

Hale be your heart! hale be your fiddle!
Lang may your keyboard jink and diddle,
To cheer you through the weary widdle
   O' this wild flat warl'
Until you on a crummock driddle
   A gray-hair'd carl.

My Uncle Bill''s started a photo blog about his home region of Ayrshire, Burns' country. Should be great as time passes - the region is beautiful.

Some of us 'getting older' generation quite like this new technology.

Thanks for the plug though.

Module Masterclass

Do you worry that your school or district could better harness its people, digital technology or physical space? Do you want some actionable inspiration, a mentor for a learning journey with your staff?

In a keynote or masterclass we can give them concrete ideas based on experience, enthusiasm fired by a vision of what can be, and backup before and after to make it happen for them.
