We are back once again with another collection of free tools & utilities which can make your working life easier.
We've added a number of new sections to the site, the first of which being a new section to the 'Free Resources for Educators' section called Noise Level Monitors.
On this page you'll find free tools and resources that you can use to monitor and display the noise level of a class, so far we've added two free tools that do this:
Our second new section is called 'Computer control' and here you will find free tools that let educators see what's going on in computer-labs and show a demo to pupils on the machines they are using, so far we only have one free entry on this list but more are coming...
Our final new section for educators covers the emerging topic of 3D printing, we expect this one to grow rapidly over the coming months and years but for now it contains just one resource:
Lastly we've added some new resources to the following existing pages:
We've also added a new resource to the e-commerce tools section for businesses:

It's been a while since our last news update, mostly because we've been incredibly busy working with schools and business clients as well as finding and sharing new free tools via our social media accounts. However we are back with another slew of updates that have been made to this main website, along with some exciting news about a brand new service we are offering to schools, i-Organiser.
i-Organiser is a secure, private website, that only you and your teaching staff can access.
It allows staff to access all of the information, resources and materials that they need to do their jobs, from any device that can access the internet, from anywhere in the world.
The look and feel of i-Organiser can be customised to meet your needs and all of its features can be customised to meet your school's individual needs.
If you'd like to take our free online demo for a spin then you can do so by visiting: http://www.i-organiser.co.uk/
We've also added some great free resources to the website which you can make use of, they are as follows:
