Another email tip this week, because there's so much people don't seem to know. ICT Tip 061 - Related Messages in Outlook.doc

Make students aware that you know if they've had a poor lesson and provide support/sanctions.

So after a bit of a break to let me build up a buffer between work and here again (as not every tip I send out round school is relevant to everyone, so some get skipped), regular service can resume.
Picking up from the last proper tip, ICT Tip #59 - Searching Emails (Outlook 2010) - Blogs - EduGeek.net, this week is ICT Tip 060 - Searching Webmail.doc. This is based on the Webmail service of Exchange 2007, so may not be relevant to everyone, but you might get some mileage out of it.
At the BETT show this year I met up with a Danish company called "Wizkids". They are a company who customise the whole Google experience specifically for the education sector. The solution uses all the Google+ facilities eg Google drive (30Gb per user) , Apps etc and includes the equivalent of Sharepoint web parts for mail, assignments etc. The really interesting thing is the automatic provisioning of accounts and groups from SIMS which are used both within the

I er, forgot to do this last week. I did it round school, but I forgot to post anything here. Sorry
So! Last week of school before Christmas, so time for a silly tip to send round: ICT Tip 067 - Tracking Santa.doc
I've had to revisit a number of my widgets so that they can also run at cluster level for individual schools within the cluster. A few hours work but it was worth the effort.
