I've been teaching teachers the last three days. We have a 1:1 ipad initiative but some of the teachers needed or wanted some training first. I'm no expert but I read some tech blogs and am willing to push buttons until things happen. The point of this ramble though is one of the teachers brought in some tatting from her family.
