Seems as though I have been using for one year now – there are 358 items – oooh so close to one a day…..

Great resource. Didn’t know what to do when it went down for a day.

Only one issue with it, and not so much a fault of the site, more an issue with managing a large stock of resources. I have the same problem with gmail, desktop search, even my own blog. Namely, where do you start when you need something, sure searching or browsing by tag is great but you need to know what your searching for in the first place. In a similar way to looking for the spelling of a word and the paradox of where to start if you don’t know how to spell it.

I remember a concept I read about in the Peter F. Hamilton novels Pandora’s Star and Judas Unchained where characters had brain inserts that allowed them to interface to the future internet (called the datasphere). They also had what was referred to as an e-Butler what essentially was a semi AI piece of software that would serve, filter, search and generally organise information. It would be tailored to your own preferences and would generally learn about your needs and would run sub-routines on large sets of data, only returning what was generally necessary. Web 2.0 (for want of a better term) is definitely better at allowing data to be organised in multiple ways.

Maybe I just want the moon on a stick, but I kinda like the idea of an e-Butler. Although mine would probably be lazy, like Homer’s monkey, and I’d be in a even worse state than I am now.

Very good resource concerning ICT. This site aims to provide a guide to ICT in the classroom and the address the challenges faced by techers using technology.

The site has a good mix of resources and articles for entry level through to expert users of ICT offering guidance to new technologies/processes such as whiteboards, interactive learning and educational techniques. The fast pace of technological change taking place in the classrooms of the UK means this site will be extremely useful.
