Good Coffee or Free Wifi?

Carlow Town has a number of cafés but only one offers free wifi and that’s the one I go to.  Even if a place offers great quality coffee, comfy seating, free refills, cheaper prices or anything else but doesn’t provide free wifi, I won’t be there if I want to do some writing.  Right now, I’m sitting in Café Le Monde.  I actually left another café to come here as it didn’t have free wifi. Every time I come here, I spend at least €2 but more often than not, I spend a lot more buying lunch, cakes, etc.  If they didn’t offer free wifi, I would never come here.  I’m never blocking up a table and the maximum time I really spend in about an hour. So Carlow cafés, unlock your broadband and let me in!

2. What do I need to help them learn it?
3. Can I use ICT to enhance the learning?

Twitter Art Project 2011

From Monday 4th April, my school is having an Art Week.  Over the last couple of years, we’ve asked the children to do a drawing in a special sketchpad during this week. Each year, they draw one picture and when they leave school, they will have a book of 8 drawings displaying their progress in art over their time in primary school! This year, we’d like to add a digital element to our proceedings and we’d love for other schools to join in. Thanks to my Twitter buddies @fboss and @seomraranga (also @mrquinnsclass) we’ve come up with some ideas. Playing with Art Online We’re going to be exploring some interesting web sites that let you paint like a famous artist.   http://www.nga.gov/kids/zone/jungle/ http://www.picassohead.com/ http://www.haringkids.com/coloringbook/index.html A Digital Art Gallery Using whatever...
