Instagram and Twitter age limit frustrations

I find it very frustrating that there are age limits for some Internet resources that could be so valuable in a primary school class. I had hoped to set up student accounts for Twitter and Instagram as a means of students connecting with their families and teachers, but have since found that there is a 13 plus age requirement for both services. I am hoping that this can be overcome with parental consent and setting up a family account.

How to learn the ukulele

I have been learning the ukulele for a while now and have made pretty good progress through using a number of web resources.  However, I do need to jump from site to site to find what I need, and have not, until now, found the one site that is free and is really good for a beginner.  The site I am recommending for beginners is on You Tube; it's The Ukulele Teacher.  Click here to check it out.

A great site to learn Te Reo Maori

I have just completed series 2 of the Toku Reo Te Reo Maori programme and fully endorse the resource as a great way of learning one of New Zealand's three official languages.  To access to progamme for your own learning, click here.

Back blogging - Blogger v Twitter

I am re-starting this blog. I had moved to Twitter, but for the purpose of sharing ideas of my own, and commenting on the ideas of others, I believe that blogging is a more effective format.
