In The Interest Of Balance

Just in case, anyone thinks that contributors to this blog are of the rose coloured glasses variety, here's a link to a British newspaper report questioning the value of IWB's in British schools. Link via Emma leaving a comment on Anne Davis' Edublog Insights.

Free Google Earth Online Course

Via Teaching Hacks comes this offering of an online course to become proficient in the use of Google Earth. This application has great IWB potential so maybe myself and other interested colleagues could have a go on a Tuesday afternoon (T&D hours of course) and take advantage of Quentin's generousity. Maybe my new laptop (when it arrives) won't shut down suddenly whenever the cache overloads and it will run smooth as silk on the ActivBoard.
