  1. hi Darren,

    was just wondering if you mind if i use your blog as a resource for teachers here in ireland, i work for folens publishers. We’re just about to start rolling out ebooks to students for the first time (we had some pilot schemes last year).

    you seem to have a good idea about what you have been doing? how long have you been using ipads in the classroom.

    Hope you don’t mind, i have already linked one of your articles

    We also have some samples available for our post primary programmes on the app store, click here if you are interested

    i would also recommend that you sign up for the newsletter as part of CESI,
    Computers in Education Society of Ireland, http://www.cesi.ie/, it can be interesting from time to time.

    if you have any issues with me using your blog articles, please let me know, or if you would like a conversation, we can certainly organise that.
