Lovely story Teresa. I'm sure the #BYOD4L and wider educational community has much to learn from your experience. Do you accept engineers?

I'm out and about and discovering one of the serious drawbacks of mobile tech. A lot of native and web-apps need a live internet connection to work. My phone's ok because it has the phone network but I can't use my tablet or laptop because I'm in a WiFi zone and the login screen refuses to pop up.

I was in New York over Christmas and free public WiFi was everywhere. Here, in Swansea your only chance of getting online is by adding to BT's profits.
