Good morning! Hope your morning is doing well for you - I've got friends coming over in about two hours time and about five half-finished blog-posts on a variety of topics... and I've just decided to cram them all together for your readability-joy and pop in a general survey question at the top because I've not done this for ages.

Learn With Portals… Teach With Portals!

I don't know if you've seen this video before: From, back in 2011: Steam have created “Teach with Portals”, a website that allows educators to sign up to gain access to an educational version of Portal 2 and the Portal 2 puzzle maker.

I thought I'd just be on page 11 of The West. Actually, I didn't think I'd be on page 11 of The West, I thought they'd leave my photo out and I'd be a small quote elsewhere around page 18 or further on, at best. But I'm on the website too! Look!
