Picture of @mindhiver taken by @RightmoveAddict & shared on Twitter

It was wonderful to be re-united with a wonderful group of women @mindhiver, @SAW_HQ, @HelReynolds, @JulietFay @LauraEmilyD @RightmoveAddict amongst many others - following on from last year's 'Mostly Women Doing Digital Event' -Feb 25th 2013.

Today's event was titled the 'Big Girls Blog Brunch' (Twitter Hashtag #bgbb14), and it was supported by the lovely folk from @SAW_USW. A great morning choc full of insights and expert knowledge and sharing. But also warmth and informality - there was a buzz, and it was wonderful to have a few hours to sit, learn and reflect on how we blog, share our expertise and knowledge online.

The following was my brief presentation. Do get in contact if I can help in any way.

 Thank you too for the kind tweets :)

Guardian Live on #esafety: How can schools engage students in e-safety? Tuesday 4 February, 2014

Following on from the November 2013 livechat on eSafety, I was kindly invited to be one of a series of panelists taking part in the Guardian hosted live chat - this time on the topic:

How can schools engage students in e-safety?
Unfortunately, I was unable to participate 'live' due to a massive accident on the M4 which prevented me from getting back in time. It seems to have been a great discussion, and I added a couple of points afterwards.
