I have lived the past 30 years of my life without a TV. I rarely watch mainstream TV in “real time” unless at a friend’s or relative’s house by default. I gave it up as a habit I could do without, one week in 1979, when I realised I could read through the whole transcript of John Pilger’s ‘Year Zero: The Silent Death of Cambodia’ in a fifth of the time I took to view it on TV. It is still an incredibly powerful piece of reporting: Year Zero: The Silent Death of…

Tonight I watched the excellent YouTube stream of #TeachMeet Bolton (#tmbolton) set up by David Mitchell . http://youtu.be/IpW8jUgV5sk and http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=gEhMIZQPwKI I have been trying to think of a way to capture what goes on at key teachmeets quickly and efficiently for researchers in the future so TeachMeet can be seen to be a viable and sustainable CPD resource or #CPD2.0 as @Dughall put it on the night.

Bumper Friday edition! Today we look at grass roots senior management initiatives using the web to organise and after school computer clubs springing up everywhere. The theme is program or be programmed – who is in charge in this country in education. Some of the social developments emerging on the back of social media and computer science.

Excerpt: Earlier today I tested Google Hangouts On Air with Theo Kuechel. As we stumbled our way through the various apps and features we talked about a number of issues. Here are 4 immediate observations as I am strapped for time as usual. 1) It will be interesting to see how this scales and what the implications are for permissions around it (Handle With Care).
