Looking for cursive fonts to support handwriting? has a large range of different fonts which should allow you to find one that suits the style your school has adopted… Not too expensive either!

They even have a unjoined precursive and cursive fonts to support the development the children make over time.

Want to edit the best bits out of a YouTube video?

Came across a really simple on-line tool for editing YouTube videos… 

Just put the url of the video you want to edit into the website and it provides you with options to indicate where you want to start and stop the video. Once you have ‘chopped’ the video you are provided with an embed code for your edited version as well as a url.

Recommended i-Pad apps

At the recent i-Pad day at the Finstall Centre it was suggested that we tried to bring together a list of apps that people were finding really useful, either as teacher productivity tools or to support learners.

Use the comment facility to add any that you have found interesting.  It would be really helpful if you could indicate:

  • cost, (if any)
  • what area of the curriculum you felt the app supported,
  • what age range you were working with.

This of course will not be definitive as it is how you use a resource rather than the resource itself which makes it age appropriate, but it might help to give an indication of where people might start to look.
