  1. Hi Mark,

    I hope you don’t mind me emailing you but I wanted to ask if we could share some of your blog posts on our website. We have recently created a new Teacher Blogs (http://www.innovatemyschool.com/teacher-blogs.html) section that compiles the latest blog posts from innovative educators around the UK. So far the page has proved a hit and we would be delighted if we could share your insight with our school community.

    We currently average between 50-60k pageviews a month so we will be directing lots of traffic your way. We would also like to include links to some of our favourite posts in our weekly newsletter sent to our 5000+ teacher subscribers.

    We have located the RSS feed for your blog so that we can keep up to date with any of your posts. If you would like to be part of our site, we will require a short blurb about yourself (we can take this from your about page if you want), an image of yourself and any social media links you would like us to include in your blogger profile.

    If you have any questions about anything, please do not hesitate to contact me.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Kind regards,


  2. A wonderful blog, Thanks for sharing all these things. I could use many of them in my classes. Wonderful organized, and easy to use. I am amazed, everything is here.
    Wishing you all the best

    Hi Mark
    I just wanted to say what a fabulous resource you’ve created here and I’m an avid reader and fan of your blog.
    I’m sure you’ve already come across the origami iPad stand before, but if you haven’t then Ive sent a link. Couple with an apple Bluetooth keyboard it transforms the iPad into a much more versatile typing tool akin to a laptop, perfect for a classroom and especially for many students who have SEN needs. I’ve been using mine for months now and I wouldn’t be without it.

    Hello Mark –

    I came across your expanded TPACK infographic online and was wondering if I could use it (as is) in a tech integration pilot plan I’m putting together for three schools. I am the EdTech Specialist for National Heritage Academies, and I’m working on helping schools blend technology into the learning process. I really like how you’ve laid out descriptions for the TPACK model to communicate these ideas concisely to educators.


    Thank you for your consideration (and work in ed tech!)

    Hi Mark, we are about to launch a web-based educational application for primary school students early next year and I’m wondering if you are open to give it a try and post the review in your blog? And how shall we do that? Thanks.

    Hi Mark

    Love the blogs. Wonder if you could help me out?

    Hey Mark, I have an iPad app I think you would be interested in. We are working with some schools in our area and getting some great feedback from students and teachers using it in the classroom. I’d love to send you a copy and get your thoughts. Let me know if I can send you as promo code.

    thanks Mark,

  12. Hi Mark,

    I would love to give you a demonstration of the new DataSec software. I am sure you will be impressed with its capabilities and flexibility. The cost for our most popular module Data Explorer is comparable to other companies.

    Many thanks
