Fun 140 character writing competition for NCEA students

Oh my goodness I haven't posted here since last year. This is worth posting though. This link


will take you to Learncoach (which every NCEA student should know about and use) where you can learn how to make $50 in the briefest piece (Twitter style) of comedy writing you probably have ever done.  Every week for the next 40 weeks, they're giving $50 to a student who writes a funny one-liner about NCEA-life in under 140 characters. 
So what have you to lose? Get to it!

Easily learn calligraphy using AR

Image result for calligraphy

In three steps with a mobile device, you can use augmented reality to guide your calligraphic pen to make several interesting designs. First, print the marker so that your phone has a virtual connection to the paper. Secondly, load the web page on the mobile device and hold it over the marker and your drawing paper. The image will appear and you can then ‘trace’ the a.r. image that appears. You might want to devise some sort of holder for the device so things don’t shift around too much.
