Bloom's interactive taxonomy Last week I had a wonderful opportunity to attend a Master Teachers Course organized in Prague by Intel Teacher Engage and led by the one and only Ollie Bray. Ollie had 18 of us from Eastern Europe + Spain glued to every word he said and made us do all the activities eagerly and enthusiastically for almost ten hours every day. He's an exceptional presenter, a skilful teacher trainer and a great person. Everything was meticulously organized by the wonderful Ruth Merrett from Intel who made it all run smoothly and who took care of all of us with a smile on her face.

However, the world moves fast, and some educators find that our suite of communication and collaboration tools doesn’t cater to our teaching and learning needs as well as they might. Interestingly, VLEs are usually more suited to managing rather than learning (but that’s for another day).
Django on windows: how to make Django run in CherryPy as a Windows service Recently a client asked me to investigate the possibility to have a Django application hosted in a Windows environment.

For example, there’s the well-known “If Twitter Was 100 People” infographic. There are also several sites that use “gimmick” to illustrate much more important data about the world around us. I thought they might make a useful “The Best…” list for English Language Learners and others.
