When not engrossed reading a good book on my kindle, watching science fiction, singing with the Cappella Singers or looking for new apps for my Iphone or Ipad l also trawl through the Internet and post useful articles on my Blog. I welcome your thoughtful contributions or questions.  I mainly hangout on Google+ where I find a nice level of engagement and plenty of interesting posts. I also use Twitter and Facebook. For video conversations I use Skype but am actively looking for an alternative. I am still amazed at what you can do on the Internet and where it's possible I enjoy being an early adopter.

I am a Secular Humanist and passionate supporter of Social Justice issues and can be found on Google+ in heated but respectful debate on these and many other topics. When reading I enjoy Science Fiction, Fantasy and History as well as good smattering of Politics. If I had to choose a hero a word that is often over used I would say Carl Sagan. So that's me if you want to know more just drop me a line via my Contact Page or through the social media sites I have mentioned.

Education & Facebook

If you are an educator and you are considering adding Facebook to your teaching tool box you might want to take a look at The Facebook Guide for Educators. You can download a free copy from the Facebook Safety Centre With lots of debate raging about Facebook and security the guide may be a valuable document so you can assess any possible use you might want to make of Facebook in your class room.


The Shallows

Today I took a look through our local book shop. I always feel relaxed when browsing through the shop. So many great books and so little time to read them all.  Today I purchased a book called "The Shallows" by Nicholas Carr. It's sub title is "How the internet is changing the way we think, read and remember". I am looking forward to reading it and will report back what I think.
