A COUPLE OF months ago I mentioned that GT’s digital edition, which previously was only available to Apple iPad users, is now on www.pocketmags.com and can be viewed on pretty much all devices and platforms. So, tablets, desktops, laptops; and on Mac, PC, Android... you name it. Well, recently Google Play has decided to stop publishing digital magazines (theirs didn’t have audio and animated tab anyway), so our own subscriptions website at www.myfavouritemagazines.co.uk now routes people to Pocketmags. This means if you buy a digital edition direct from us you get the full working version with audio, etc. Many readers like to take advantage of ‘bundle’ deals where you get both print and digital versions at a special price. This means you can interact with GT pretty much wherever you are. The digital…

food for thought

I’m a bit of a dinosaur in the online teaching game, been around since the beginnings of online education and seen a lot of changes. Technology has grown incredibly fast and the quality of work and amount of people providing content is staggering. But one thing didn’t change – and that is that we’re human. I’m pretty well connected in the scene and personally know many of the people teaching and performing online. But I’m noticing a worrying trend of depression, self-doubt and anxiety among my peers – and a lot of it is caused by many thoughtless comments on YouTube videos and in social media, people sharing their opinion in ways that very few would dare to do face-to-face. Perhaps people have forgotten that behind a video or social post is…

session shenanigans

Tis the Saturday before the Saturday before Christmas. The alarm goes off at 6am. I resist the temptation to throw the thing at the cat, Bill Murray/Groundhog Day style. Mainly because I no longer possess one. Sadly, Fenda passed on to the great gig in the sky some years ago. It’s cold, dark and wet. And not much better outside. I dress quickly if inaccurately, chuck a mug of organic, free trade, on-message caffeine at my face and stumble into the night. The saving grace is that I’ve prepared all my gear and stage wear the previous evening, thus reducing the chances of mishap and delay. It’s now 6.30am and to no one’s surprise, the M1 is already replete with happy, lobotomised folk going about their Yuletide business. Surely they…
