    The front door to our virtual home 

    Home page #3

    Over the past few weeks I have been busy setting up my school’s Virtual Learning Environment. It’s been a stressful journey but I now feel quite confident in deploying it throughout the school. Above is an example of the current Home page that my class are greeted with when then sign in. This is my third version and it still requires tweaking but I and the children like this. We think it’s simple, uncluttered and provides a platform to get to other learning pages. I’m looking to incorporate an RSS feed as a scrolling banner just under the page title in due course and I use the Voki as an easy way to include new information about the page.

    What do you think?

    Have you got a home page design you would like to share?

    Can we make any improvements?

    To twit or not to twit? 

    I came across these articles this morning whilst browsing through my twitter network – one from The Telegraph and the other from The Guardian. The content of both concerns the use of technology in school, yet one focuses on the misuse and the other its positive side. One reads like the usual scaremongering, feeding the doubters with yet more nonsense whilst the other reaches out to them, encouraging them to open their eyes and embrace technology and its use in the classroom.

    They made me stop and think. I enjoyed both for different reasons but I found myself been drawn towards the negative aspects of an article more than the postive. Why? (More …)

    Twitter in the classroom 

    A very big thank you to @zemote for this link on using Twitter as a resource in the classroom. The video explains it all.

    Twitter in the classroom

    I have a meeting with the secondary head teacher on Monday about the uses of IWB’s and technology in the classroom so I’ll be using this link myself.
