So what is Circle? Well, I think everyone listening has probably cried to Bambi, or Dumbo so you know what Disney is! Circle with Disney is a little device designed for families to help manage content and time spent online across devices in the home. It pairs to Wi-Fi routers and 4G or WiFi networks of Tablets, PCs, Smart Phones, and all devices its connected with and allows parents to filter content, set time limits and bedtimes across platforms like YouTube, Minecraft, Facebook, Netflix and Snapchat. Which reminds me of when my mum tragically pulled the plug from our Amstrad PC on a hot summer’s day just before we could crush the boss man on Kung Fu Master. I didn’t thank her then, but I definitely do now.  The best thing is the kind folks at Circle have sorted out special Free Shipping and a $10 OFF discount for you listeners if you go to meetcircle.com and enter the code EDTECH. The code will be live till the 31st March. Thank you Circle.  Next up, our friends at Full Fabric with a message to all the higher education listeners out there. If you work in university admissions and you’re considering ways to streamline your marketing and on boarding processes check them out! Full Fabric is developed by a team who worked within a university and were frustrated by the experience of supporting students effectively. They realised any software solution needed to be customisable to help universities recruit, market to and admit students in one place. All data is hosted on the cloud, meaning it can be accessed anytime, anywhere and on a range of devices. If that sounds of interest to you, you can request a free consultation about your university’s admissions process by visiting learn.fullfabric.com/podcast  Sample quotations:  Amanda Jackson, Inspector for Standards and Effectiveness for Computing and eSafety, Havering Education Services Denmark - ‘The thing that they were really interested in were the micro:bits.’ VR: 'It can’t ever replace a good trip somewhere, but it can work really well when you have good context’ Dave Smith, Computing & Online Safety Adviser/Business Development Lead, Havering Education Services A UK digital strategy for schools: 'That’s something we desperately need. We need to be driving that in our schools.’ Sweden: 'When I went there in 2011 for the first time, in the swedish authority all the students have a laptop of their own and all the students are all
