Next week
Next week I am at a special training session in Singapore to become an Apple Distinguished Educator. This is a great opportunity for me to bring some new great ideas about how to use technology in our class. Whilst I'm away I will not be blogging each day. I will add the next student blogging challenge for you. Check it out on Sunday!
