Using Wikispaces

Over the last couple of years I have used Wikispaces and WetPaint to help crate and develop class resources with the classes.

This year I am going to use Wikispaces to develop and display resources from my Intermediate 2 Web Design Class.


This course was developed as part of the DIVA project by the SQA from The Adobe Curriculum

I have found that this a very useful way of making this practical course more real. The only way this can happen is if people come by look and provide feedback. I will be prompting you to go and look and comment on the classes work via this blog and via twitter

And …. I’m back………Just

Well, that was the summer. I must say that it was the worse I have ever had. And I don’t just mean the weather.

I am not going to go into details but had a helicopter ride and 3 days in a High Dependency ward and that was the first Saturday of the summer holidays!


Been back at school just over a week. Its been busy getting the UMPC’s back out to the owners after a major update of software. A huge well done to Walter (ICT Technician) to get through all the UMPC’s on his own. I had planned to help him.

The really exciting day was this afternoon. I had all of our new intake to start the induction to the UMPC’s. I love they enthusiasm and desire to get their hands on the devices.

I will go through the software that was on the image another time but some really interesting plans on the horizon for this year.

Just watch this space.

New app: Photosynth


If you can’t see ‘Synth’ above then go to

The Synth above was made on the 1st public day of Photosynth at the Pier of Port Charlotte. The village I live in at the moment.

Its an amazing way of taking loads of images and putting them together into a ‘3d’ place.
