Starting out as a teacher, I was terrified at public speaking in assemblies and staff briefings. However, when starting out in middle leadership just 2½ years later, I discovered I had no choice. I had to speak and present on behalf of my faculty. It was the expected norm and as with all things teaching, … Okumaya devam et
I tumbled and tweeted another quote from this presentation yesterday. You could easily quote the words that go with every slide. I’d highly recommend reading this if you are at all interested in the internet, privacy and information.
The first thing to centralize was search. Google found a superior way to index our web, and the other search engines faded away. Then Google acquired the one true ad network, and wrote the dominant analytics suite.
Email centralized in the face of rampant spam, with attractive offers of free storage to sweeten the deal.
Facebook won the social network wars in the US, and began gobbling up competitors in other countries.
The mobile devices that are taking over the web fall into one of two camps. One of them pretends to be more open than the other, but it’s mostly a matter of marketing. In practice they both have complete control of their ecosystem.
I am coming back to it today thinking that the awareness of your online presence, the data trails you leave and the consequences should sit squarely with internet safety in schools.Maciej Ceglowski the presenter, run the wonderful Pinboard bookmarking service.

A quick test
I am posting this from the editorial an interesting iOS app.
Editorial is a plain text editor for the iPad with powerful automation tools and a beautiful inline preview for writing Markdown
I've only made a few quick tests with the app but it looks like it will be of interest with folk who like scripting. Editorial has a python based automation system with which users can use and build workflows. You edit these workflow in the app itself.
Although I know no python I managed to edit the publish to metaweblogapi workflow to work with this pivotx blog. I also managed to import and configure the FTP image upload script
I am writing this post in markdown and hoping my blog understands it or that the publish script converts to html first. Update I needed to add conver to html to the workflow. This was simple.
It looks like there are plenty of workflows to install and much for the tinkerer to play with.
My own use of the iPad has changed over time and I am not sure this is for me. I mainly use my iPad for browsing, reading RSS (and posting findings to tumblr & twitter), social media, note taking , email and some light image and video editing. I've a few workflow type things that I do in Drafts but that is about it. I'll probably poke around in Editorial and see how it goes. I guess you can't have enough choice in ways to post to a blog.

We began to realise that we had to take true ownership of our school development, based on our own self-evaluation. We determined that we understood the school better than anyone else and therefore we were the ones that needed to identify our priorities. We wished to have a progression and a connection in our developments. Last year's actions would determine this year's. We needed to slow down, do less and achieve more. Quality not quantity was key. We thought again about our values and what we identified as our priorities and this helped us make decisions about what we would do and, perhaps more importantly, what we wouldn't do. We decided that we would base our actions on sound evidence and not somebody else's latest fad or hobby horse. In short, we took real control of what we wanted to do.
When I look back I see now how crucial it was that we took the time to stop, reflect and change our thinking as a result. In the schools I now lead we have built on this approach and it is this that has allowed us to embrace the complexity of practitioner enquiry and achieve the results we have.
