Please consider, if you have not already, a Gravatar for this course.  It is a wonderful way to begin crafting your digital reputation.  It is put together by the folks at WordPress and simply awesome.

Here is some more information from their site:

“Your Gravatar is an image that follows you from site to site appearing beside your name when you do things like comment or post on a blog. Avatars help identify your posts on blogs and web forums, so why not on any site?”

  1. Hi Michael,

    My name is Gabriel Ang, and I was an MYP Design Technology teacher and Technology Integrator at Beijing City International School. I am moving on to teach MYP Drama and Design Technology at my next school in Uganda this year. I have used WordPress before and am hoping that this course will help extend my learning. Looking forward to it!
