Use lucid.app for all your Lucidpress and Lucidchart needs

Lucid have brought all their services and you files together in a very ‘Google Drive’ style approach.

To start a document or find your exiting ones – start of lucid.app.

Do you get students to produce notes in Google Documents?

If you allow your students to make digital notes in your lessons consider the use of a Google Documents.

A single document, per student, per subject structured with uniformly formatted headings (using H1, H2, H3 etc) and bookmarks produces a well structured document that increases in usefulness as more content is added.

The Social Dilemma is now available on YouTube

If you haven’t seen it – it is worth a watch. I think there are some great sequences in it. I particularly like the ones that ‘show’ a characters attention being kept by a social media platform.
