Just switched to the newly released Twenty Nineteen theme by WordPress. It’s a very pure theme, with nothing extra. But it works fine with the new editor released with WordPress version 5. I’ve been using Disqus as my comment engine for a while, but Twenty Nineteen didn’t handle the comment section as it supposed to […]
You can find this quote at brilliant.org. An addictive website with great ideas and daily tasks. The photo is from last year’s Telenor Smartphone Academy, where I talked about using smartphones in education. Don’t forget this quote over the next school year.
The first carpool karaoke video I’ve seen was the one with Adele. I love her songs, but never knew, she’s so funny and cool. These carpool videos show the true character of the guests. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nck6BZga7TQ 2 days ago James Corden just posted a new video with the Red Hot Chili Peppers in the car.

We spent the last week in Talavera de la Reina as part of an Erasmus+ project (website not yet finished). Since Talavera is close to Toledo, we visited the beautiful city. As we found out, that Fly Toledo is supposed to be the longest zip line in Europe, we had to try it. I’m not sure, whether it is still […]

Many musicians realized the change of the music business. Jay Z started Tidal, De La Soul tries another approach. I prefer the latter one, although I subscribed to Tidal to give it a try as well. I already backed De La Soul’s new album on Kickstarter. https://twitter.com/kobak/status/582845101476544513 The music business is changing. We need collaboration between fans […]
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GEmuEWjHr5c As you already know after watching the video above, that learning with words and pictures together can be more effective. So I added some quotes from the video to help you learn these. :) Why do we need teachers? Well if you think, that the fundamental job of a teacher is to transfer information […]
Great talk by Tony DeRose. He shows how addition, multiplication, geometry and trigonometry are playing a role in Pixar movies. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_IZMVMf4NQ0 Of course, this is just the surface. They use much further mathematics at Pixar, but being a 15 year old student, this makes sense why you have to learn these not so simple stuff […]
