The Learn 4 Life Podcast is back!

Welcome to the Learn 4 Life Podcast

Here is the audio tease for the next season of L4L’s News Podcasts for the Summer Term.

We hope you enjoy the format – more to come next week. This week is only a tease to get you going but we will be going out more in-depth each week on UK Education topics. News and views from the Grass Roots for practising teachers and educators.

Connecting an iPhone or iPad to an Ethernet

Posted on by leoncych in Networking | Comments Off on Connecting an iPhone or iPad to an Ethernet

I owe this little trick to Nick Garnett (@nicholasgarnett)’s; his demo on Twitter a few days ago was amazing.

I already had most of the equipment he mentioned so I ordered the new Lightning to USB 3  Camera adaptor.

The bits you will need are the adaptor above – a USB3 hub to Ethernet lead – the Anker one he mentions is listed below.

A substantial portable battery to power the hub and phone/ iPad through the adaptor.

Then you turn off the Airplane Mode and wifi and connect it all up as in the video above.

When you go to go online the phone (in particular) gives you a message that reads:

Turn Off Airplane Mode or Use Wi-Fi to Access Data. Just ignore that and click OK. You should then be online through the ethernet cable.

 

USB to Ethernet

Here’s a list of all the stuff.

  1. Lightning to USB 3 Camera adaptor £25
  2. Spare Lightning Lead and extension £25
  3. Anker Unibody 3 port USB hub and ethernet port  £18
  4. EC Tech 2nd Generation USB 22400 mAh Battery £20

That’s a hefty £88 at the time of writing and there will be cheaper equivalents coming on the market all the time. I need to pay out for these as it will make my life much easier. I can live stream video from ethernet in hotels and other locations from an Ipad or phone. This will be a boon when I am training people or going into schools. It also cuts down the weight of all my kit.

If you are a larger school you might consider investing in this equipment – especially if you do a lot of filming of events.

Twitter Widgets to RSS Feed for twitter search

Posted on by leoncych in "Twitter search", Continual Professional Development, informal learning, Innovation | Comments Off on Twitter Widgets to RSS Feed for twitter search

Just playing about I used Amit Argawal’s Twitter Widget to RSS feed script to make a Twitter Search Widget that you can see below


but then I turned that into a “readable” RSS feed via Amit’s Google script; which you can, in turn, then drop into any RSS reader saving you the trouble of going to Twitter and typing it in.

Here’s the URL parsed by FeedBucket for example.

Now I’ve updated this blog, I’m looking for faster ways of processing “search”; this script came in very handy. It saves me trawling mindlessly through Twitter every day – I can automate the process of search (especially within lists of core people I know who know a lot about education) to give me quick results that I can follow up on to write news stories reflecting discusion. Of course, this is only one feed…

I use Reeder on Mac and IOS have always found it extremely useful – I can apply further filters to drill through the info. I like the way I can export subscriptions to OPML; but enough geekery, I hope people find this example time-saving and useful.
