    We have written a brochure for BETT. Please can ANYONE on Edugeek look at it for me to say if it would potentially arrest the attention of a passing ICT HoD or primary ICT coordinator. Pleeeeaaase?

    End of term we reached our target of 3000 links that we have set up for schools in the UK. We actually had a thermometer on the wall that we coloured in, day by day.

  4. St Vincent linking with Bucks schools...

    by , 20th December 2009 at 10:01 AM (Connecting classrooms through ICT - projects, sharing, networking for teachers and students)
    Had Bucks meeting last week in High Wycombe and the 8 heads chosen to go to St Vincent & Grenadines are all fab and full of ideas.

    We've also had more than sixty applications from local authorities to link four of their schools with schools in Latin America, India and Sri Lanka, the panel to choose the 25 successful applications is on Jan 7th.

    The delegation is going in at the highest possible level so all the materials they share will be properly suited to curriculum ...

  5. Innovation Management

    Probably not that relevant to all ... but worth having a look at and a think.

    It would also be worth looking at TeachMeet EdTechRoundUp 2009 as there were so many ideas there that it is hard to summarise.

    Sometimes I look at why I work for lower money then my corporate counterparts in IT. Then I realise in corporate IT, you don't get strange and random situations every day due to the unpredictability of the students at the school.

    As an example, I currently have some of the older kids singing a joint rendition of the song below in one of the corridors outside my office. You won't see that in corporate IT.

We found lots of systems that were patched but still infected after the virus propagated over the network, only a few systems that didnít belong ...

    I recovered from the flu! Then after catching up following a weeks quarantine Conficker came to play.

    On the Friday, the network came down.
    By the following Thursday, core services were restored. So about a week.

    Still a few bits left but now I am back to another week of catching up as our reports couldn't be filled in or analysed by admin staff. On the plus side, I could tinker with Remote Desktop to monitor the servers and had lots of experience cleaning up ...
