This Weeks Catch Up
Reboot - Tech at the Pub
This month sees the relaunch of Tech at the Pub, with a focus on NBN Users. Do you have it, and want to know how to get more out o it? Then this group of like-minded, often tech-savvy people is a great place to hang out.
I saw a need for a non-threatening, relaxed social group to share the NBN knowledge that is here in Armidale, hence the NBN Users group. As there was already a Tech at the Pub Group that had fallen away a little, I thought merging the two would make sense.
A group of Whirlpoolians ( http:\\whirlpool.net.au ) have agreed to come along - now I want to open it up to any Armidalian who is interested in getting the most out of their NBN!
Look forward to seeing you all.

Other ways to animate
Many entertaining apps appearing for smart phones and tablet devices like the iPad, that have an interactive character that mimicks what you say and allows you to interact by touching the screen. If you use the record button, you can use these apps to create an introduction to your unit, meeting or discussion with your peers.
I created a video message to my fellow teachers during marking, as we had >300 students this time around.
The App is called Talking Tom, and there are many other characters for you to try.
Could be a fun way to get students to read out loud and practise interactively.
