Spent a great deal of time trying to get my head round Omniplan to see if it could be useful to plan out some of my classes for next year. I found this very informative post by +Fraser Speirs. Not absolutely sure it's the way forward, but it does offer some interesting possibilities for curriculum design.

I think the emotion some people are feeling is due to a nostalgia for childhood. (The Watership Down style of drawing and the 2D animation)  . The cynicism comes along because, thanks to people like David Attenborough, we know that real bears eat tiny animals (Sheesh, thanks David for ruining our childhood!). The annoyance is because NO ONE likes to be woken up by a ringing alarm clock especially in the middle of hibernating!

If anyone was looking for a good quiz web-app. This is the most comprehensive I've found - it allows 50mb upload of media (including images and video). The use of the video is something which many others don't supply without paying for it!

Also their online service is pretty swift! (Unlike my school's VLE supplier)

Went to the William Klein retrospective at the Tate modern on Sunday. Of all the images this one was one which fascinated me more that anything I've seen in a long long time.

The narrative being played out here is just mind blowing. Is the gun being held by his mum? What's in her hand?

I would definitely recommend the exhibition.

Best Tweet ever For #London2012

 @robinparker55: A ginger, a Muslim immigrant and a mixed race woman walked into a bar. Everyone bought them a drink.

Hello, 

I'm attempting to create a shared spreadsheet in which all staff can set deadlines for particular classes so that we can all see if a particular class has a deadline on a particular day.

 I've got a couple of templates, but I just wanted to check if anyone else had come up with an elegant solution rather than just re-inventing the wheel. 

I'm also trying to simplify things by not using gCal, and through that spreadsheets would be the best way to go.

We have a school calendar visible to parents and a staff calendar for internal scheduling. If staff put exam and assignment dates on the staff calendar we can all see what's going on.

One of the skills I teach my year 7s is summerising. (Along with clarifying, questioning and predicting) I've not had this type of answer yet. Give it time.

Eating at Al Forno is a very particular experience. Expect it to be loud, raucous and tremendous fun almost every night of the week. The staff are very friendly and gregarious; last week Bruno, the matre d', addressed the restaurant with a loud-hailer. However, we were also serenaded by a local choir on their Christmas meal. It's that kind of place. I wouldn't expect to have a quiet intimate meal here, but great for meeting with friends. The staff cross-dress in tennis kit during the Wimbledon championship.
