ETR Weekly #3 – Open Source, Internet Safety update, iPhone Apps & more!

ETR WeeklyThere were a good number of regulars missing from this week’s FlashMeeting – all for good reasons – but it was great to welcome some new faces. We began with a quick plug for David Noble’s Edonis project, which forms part of his Ed.D. research. We then discussed Doug, José & Ian’s involvement in an upcoming Becta-funded Open Source Schools project and issues surrounding that. After this, we moved on to an update on Internet Safety materials, prompted by Louise Jones, and finally we got to the wonder of iPhones and educational uses for the plethora of applications available for it.
