Happy Birthday TOTD

October 8, 2008

We’re a year old today.  Trust you’ve been enjoying the last 245 postings.

Here are some highlights(?) from the past year:

October 2007 and a blog from Stephen Fry:

January had us delving into a scary world of Scrabble with the ‘short story’ _Craziest_:

No round up of the year would be complete with a mention of the biggest item in our tag cloud: Lego.  May saw three entries:

July quite wore us out following Rob Piatt (you can now download his whole blog in chronological order as a PDF file if you want to revisit his quest for an anecdote).

August had us bookmooching:

Finally, there’d be trouble at t’mill if this wasn’t picked from September:

Here’s to another year of TOTD – recently okayed by the powers that be to continue – we hope you all have a great year as well.

 

Rich Pictures

November 29, 2007

Not quite mindmaps, but an attractive way of presenting information, rich pictures are described as helping to identify players in a process as a start to high level analysis.

The second ‘rich picture’ on the page is one presented by Gilly Salmon at a recent lunchtime workshop on ‘Learning Futures’ which seemed to capture people’s imaginations at both the content level and the ‘art’ level.
