Podcast No1 All about Blogging By the students!! Here is the link for my first podcast . I interviewed my year 8 class last term in a lesson where the class was working in groups and asked them some questions about our blogging. They have now been blogging for a semester and I am so impressed by their comments. When I feel discouraged about creating change, this is a lovely place to come as they make it all worthwhile.

Youtube Conversion

I have a fabulous daughter.
She taught me about how to download really simply from YouTube and then convert the video for itunes or quicktime.
Because YouTube is blocked in my school I need a way to show my students.So Kate has shown me how to use the activity window in Safari and then ISquint to convert the for Itunes and then made it so I could post it here - yes I am a noob and this is really basic, but I am learning to speak mac and kate wrote this !!;)
