Collecting from Barcelona I thought I’d have a trip to Barcelona to collect the iPhone 7 although I normally have the new things from Apple sent to my house.

Improve learning techniques with technology

I’m still learning things because I am a lifelong learner. I’m looking to improve learning techniques with technology because that’s the way I roll.
