I confirmed something I suspected but hoped wasn't true... any file hosted on ning is blocked by Portland Public Schools. Images, videos, audio... even if I have put it in a separate object code, if the url of the file is hosted by ning, it's blocked.
This changes my work flow a bit. Instead of creating posts on ning and transferring the posts from here, I need to create posts on weebly, where I host my site for students (portlandfreeschool.org
). The weebly platform has its own way of embedding videos, images, music, etc, and I can't simply copy the html code and paste it here. I need to rebuild those posts on ning to share them
This means some of my blog posts won't get transferred, especially those that don't have much to do with EFL. What I can do is post a link to my new materials at Portland Free School here... this week it's a two-part piece on tessellations, one on Escher
, and another on how to create your own tessellations
As always, if you see something you really like and want the original files, drop me a note and I will get them to you.
This is an Escher you might not have seen before-
Shells and Starfish
