Excerpt: I have been heavily involved in launching a new “general” podcast for UK education. It’s called theEDFiles and you can listen to it in the player below. I’m co-hosting this with my colleague Alex Weatherall – a science teacher from York. So far we’ve had over 300 downloads in 24 hours so it seems to be hit with the education community. Each show will be themed and will include education, news, views, reviews and interviews with key people in education. Give it a listen – it’s perfect if you are commuting to work or are involved in menial tasks or even…

Excerpt: Twitter has just turned on the ability for every user to create their own “Moments” feeds on desktop computers. If you go to your Twitter on a PC and look at your home page you should see the new “Moments” option in the menu. Depending on how it is rolled out you might have to wait a while until you can create one but eventually the ability to post tweets to a stream shows up when you click on your picture on the desktop version (at the time of writing this isn’t possible on mobile). From there you are taken to…

Excerpt: With the ability to stream to FaceBook Live comes the opportunity to reach a much bigger audience. I am a bit obsessed with getting really good quality streams for education so I’ve been experimenting over the last few weeks with streaming live to FaceBook.

This setup enables me to have the ability to stream out a very high quality camera and audio for interviews and coverage of events. I can switch in videos…
