Saw Kathryn Williams play in Paisley this evening. Amazing.
If you get the chance to see her at any time, do so. Great voice, wonderful songs.

Great video to get students reflecting on how they treat each other. Thanks to +Joe Bower for the share!

Great video work. I thought the tricks looked a bit easy though. ;-)

Do any of the members of the Scottish Education Group have digital leaders? I'm creating a G+ group for Digital Leaders in Scotland, to share resources, ideas and to facilitate meetups (online or real-life) between digital leaders in Scotland. I've also created an Edmodo group for the Digital Leaders themselves to join and discuss all things digital leader-y.
If you want to know more about digital leaders or the group, just ask.
Thanks,
Robert

It's quite hard to separate the experience of the Arts Centre from the gig I attended. I went to see Michael Cassidy and Kathryn Williams. The gig was amazing, I totally loved Kathryn some amazing songs and a great voice. The venue itself was easily found via google maps on my phone, it had parking nearby (which was on street and free). The staff in the venue were really helpful and explained where I could easily find a cashpoint and how long I had to get there before the show started! The venue had a bar/coffee shop offering alcohol, soft drinks and hot drinks (from a proper espresso machine!) It also sold Divine chocolate bars and buttons :-) The auditorium for the gig was 'small but perfectly formed' as Kathryn put it. It was really intimate and sat in row 2 I had a great view. The sound was great, just right IMO for the size of venue. I would certainly visit again to watch a performance or gig there. Thanks.

I love going an spending an afternoon in brewdog. They have an amazing range of beers on draft and bottled. They get beers from all around the world as well as showcasing their own wonderful brews. The staff are great and are more than happy to allow you to taste a different draft beer prior to buying a full measure of it. (Brewdog sell their stronger ales in smaller measures) The beers range from very hoppy IPA (punk IPA a favourite of mine) through amber ales to the Imperial Stout range which I love (as does my wife who is not a beer fan). The bar does a good range of food, pizzas are always freshly cooked and tasty, the cheeseboard (which can be cheese and meat unless like me you're vege) is lovely with 3 different cheeses as well as warm bread and range of oatcakes and chutney. If you want a seat, I'd recommend going in the afternoon as when I've been in the evenings it can be hard to find a seat. The awesome range of beers means that good beer related chat with people you've never met is only a sip of ale away. They often run meet the brewer evenings, cake and beer (what can possibly go wrong there??), and have live music on occasionally too. They tend to announce these via their own social media outlets. My advice, get some time, get some money and go along and sample the range. I don't think you'll drink 'standard' beer and lager again!

Good service from staff. Clearly showed us how to use the van before we took it off on our adventures. The van itself was spotlessy clean and had everything in perfect working order, Would recommend.

Lovely building, but I've never had even acceptable service here. On 2 occasions I've had to leave before ordering as the event I was hoping to see was about to start...this despite arriving up to 30mins before my event started.

Always a pleasure to eat here. Very friendly and helpful staff, wide ranging menu. The food always tastes fresh and is well prepared. A place to go in Edinburgh
