    Keeping track of a number of stories relating to ‘Raising Children in a Digital Age‘ in the news… and I love this piece about a ‘tech-deprived childhood‘: Link between cyberbullying and teen suicides oversimplified, experts say: One of the threads tying their deaths together is a cause-and-effect link made by the media, politicians and parents between persistent […]

  • APP IN USE: Splashpath

    Been using this ‘Splashpath’ app for a while – I mix swimming in with other classes (just can’t find the gym interesting any more – was OK when used to go with a friend and just talk as exercise!). I like the fact that I can choose a ‘challenge’ and swim that – I did […]


  • App: Verbal Victor

    Interesting inspiration for an app: It is Victor who has provided renewed inspiration for Pauca’s work. Born with a rare genetic disorder called Pitt-Hopkins syndrome, which limits language and movement, the boy was dependent on bulky and expensive communication devices that often broke down.

  • Talking Carl

    Talking Carl

    Initially, during an ‘app swap’ session at an educational tech conference (#pelc10), I couldn’t see the point of this app, but decided that it was only 59p, and my colleague seemed almost unable to use it for laughing. What Can You Do With It? Strictly speaking, there’s not a lot to this app. Carl will […]


  • Mobile Networking

    Mobile Networking

    I have noticed with my students that they rarely seem to read their emails, or their university emails, at least, even though this is our main method of communication with them. Mobiles, however, they can’t get enough of, and it’s growing. With modern mobiles (and yes, I gave into the iPhone), there’s the option of a […]
