From Across the Pond!

As I learn more about the power of the PLN, and the wonderful connections to be made on Twitter, I find myself coming across wonderful surprises. I am often on twitter looking for voices from frontline teachers, so that I can absorb and share their insights. On one occasion last week, I came across this blog post. It moved me as it was a simple review of my Quick Key app, and the review highlighted why I created the app, and affirmed the importance of tools for educators being #Teachermade. Please check out and follow @mrjwinstanley, he has a lot to share, don’t miss out.

Mr Winstanley’s Blog:

The responses I get when demoing Quick Key for the first time are fantastic. Some swiftly take the device and parade it around the staff room as if a descendant of royalty, others turn into gollum and reduce into the shadows whispering ‘my precious’ for the rest of their lunch break. It really is that good!
