Sorry if you're an avid reader of my Friday Blog - I've been really busy initiating some project work and then had a week off in beautiful Ports du Soleil region of the French Alps. Back un-injured I'll try to get back into Blogging mode.
Our mobile technology came into it's own when away. For this first time this year we checked the BBC news web site over some vin chaud (elevenses!) at 2100 meters (almost 7000 ft) on my pal's iPhone. We also booked a restaurant in the village for dinner from the same place. I logged into my work email just to see if I could - and I could. I emailed a picture taken that moment to my email account and of course sent a multimedia message to the team back at the office - life is good!
Text messaging came into it's own for our rendezvous at the pub, I received numerous happy birthday messages to disturb the silence of the mountains (probably a bit annoying for others), and kept in touch with the family. We took short videos on my mobile phone but sadly missed the best moments.
I'll need to get back to applying all this to learning teaching but here's my message to you all - the technology's there and it's awesome - use it for personal activities and it will help you to get your head around it's application for learning & teaching.
