The kids Future

I had a parents meeting a week or so back at our school to discuss the new curriculum, which is based on the notion that we need to prepare our kids for working in environments we cannot even think of, doing jobs that haven’t been invented yet.  As a parent you cant help but feel a little overwhelmed by the future.  However, what with the Raspberry Pi and now this from the BBC – we should have a generation of kids that...

YouTube for Kids!

Well, I guess it’s a good idea? Recently a friends child was on YouTube searching for articles relating to Minecraft and watching tutorials on how to do particular tasks  .. trying to learn & improve his knowledge which was great, until mum realised that some of the clips contained some pretty colourful language which clearly came as a bit of shock! It seems like this version of YouTube is heading in the right direction but...

Has the Kindle had its day?

Remember the hoo ha when e-readers first hit the market? How bookshops trembled at the mere mention of the ‘K’ word. I’ve never really embraced the whole Kindle thing having always preferred the feel of a book, flicking over the pages, the smell of it (well the ones from the 10p book fairs maybe). I might be considered old school in my approach but it seems that recent stats are pointing to an upturn in the number of ‘physical’ books...

Why texting is such a pain in the neck

A fascinating fact about the traumas of texting. Apart from bumping into things whilst walking and texting, research has now shown that there is a rise in the number of neck injuries caused by texting. They’ve even given it a medical term ‘text neck’. There’s also one called ‘iPad Shoulder’.
