A Bajillion Blogs (well, not quite)

Look at all these class blogs from around New Zealand, they’re awesome. Can you see any that you recognize? Read some of them and leave a comment if your parents say it’s ok.

This will probably be the last thing I put up for Room 11, you’re all going to new rooms and new teachers next year. Do me a favour; after a few weeks, when you’ve settled into your new class, ask your new teacher, “Do we have a class blog?” or “Can we have a class blog please?”. You know how kids say,

“Are we there yet?”
“Are we there yet?”
“Are we there yet?”

in that really annoying way? That’s how you should ask. You may find that you have a class blog, but if you don’t… asking, “Do we have a class blog yet?” once a day/a few times a week should be just annoying enough to get you one.

Enjoy the rest of your holidays and I’ll see you in February.

P.S. Don’t annoy your new teacher too much :-)

GMail iOS 5

Today Google updated their iOS 5 GMail app. After a disastrous app launch last month, Google have added a feature that extends GMail in a new and exciting way. They’ve added a feature called Scribbles that allows you to create and share doodles, drawings, hand drawn maps etc. directly from the GMail app. A small range of brushes, sizes and colours are available and the scribble automagically attaches as a png to your email.

Keep ’em coming Google :-)
