“Leaving your email as plain text in forums, on Twitter or on classified sites makes you an easy spam target: spam robots and email harvesters constantly browse these sites to collect new victim emails.”

Free CPD for SLPs via Twitter

Free CPD and resources for SLPs via Twitter

After a break from blogging I came back here and discovered, with horror, how difficult it was to find content that I know is here . . . somewhere.

One of the problems is with pages, rather than blog posts.

It is not possible to assign a “Category” to a page or to “tag” a page.

I run another blog, all to do with ukuleles, and over there I have routinely blogged links to new pages.  It might mean an extra step or two to get to a target page but at least there is a signposted path to follow.

So, to help make this site more user-friendly, it is time to blog some links to the pages.

Better late than never!

YouTube auto generated channels for SLPs

Quite by chance, I noticed yesterday that there was a YouTube auto generated Channel for Augmentative and Alternative Communication.  Remembering that Kate Caryer had asked members of the “Unspoken” Group for links to AAC media, I popped straight over to Facebook to post the link.

When I came back to YouTube, I could not find this channel again.  This time, it didn’t turn up in the search results for “augmentative and alternative communication”.  So back I went to Facebook to find and copy the link that I had posted there.  Only I could not find the “Unspoken” Group!  So back I went in my browser history to find it, resolving to bookmark the channel and subscribe to it, in order to save time in future.

I was intrigued to know where this channel had come from.  The answer is on the Official YouTube for May 4th 2012,  “Finding and following new channels you love“.  There is further info on the YouTube Support Page – extract below: Continue reading “YouTube auto generated channels for SLPs”
