Our Favourite Things From 2015

As 2015 winds to a close and those out-of-office auto-replies begin to multiply, we take a look at our favourite things from this year:

Our favourite apps from 2015:
Memio – Memio makes learning and mindmaps fun, and uses diagrams to help you remember everything from your shopping list to your child’s history syllabus. Find out more about Memio here.

The Everything Machine – this app is next-level fascinating and filled with seemingly infinite possibilities. It’s worth every cent you pay for it – check out our review here.

Educational Resources
WorksheetCloud has quickly become a favoured system for exam revision and skills practice for South African schoolchildren. If you haven’t signed up for WorksheetCloud yet, you can find out more about this incredible service here. The team tells us that there are great new features to look forward to in 2016! We also loved learning about Google’s approach to education and the Innovation Tour that took place in 2015. We really enjoyed exploring and learning from the truly South African, educational apps from Xander this year.

Collaborations
Working alongside or collaborating with some of South Africa’s very best minds in tech has been both fun and funny for us. Our big thanks to Tech Girl for their support of us, and for allowing us to contribute to their great site!

Tick these off the list
If, like me, you haven’t quite yet finished your festive shopping, don’t despair. Our age-appropriate gift guides will make it a little easier to find the perfect presents, so check them out for ideas.

And lastly, as strange as it may seem, we quite like the idea of taking a Digital Holiday. Turning off those notifications, switching off the tablet and heading outdoors for a great summer’s afternoon with family and friends sounds like a great idea right now.

Have a wonderful holiday and we’ll see you in 2016!
