  1. How has your registration/form group behaved today?

    by , 2nd February 2014 at 10:00 AM (The Progresso Geek)
    View today's, yesterday's, or the last 7 day's behaviour by registration group. In fact, add the widget twice to show positive and negative events. Or even create a SLT/SMT Behaviour Dashboard showing summary behaviour for each year group.

    Build relationships further by commenting on positive behaviour in other classes. Make students aware that you know if they've had a poor lesson and provide support/sanctions.

  2. ICT Tip #60 - Searching Emails in Webmail (Exchange 2007)

    by , 29th January 2014 at 11:29 AM
    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.
  3. Google+ solution

    Dear All

    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 ...

Once it's imported into Apple Configurator; if it's a paid app you'll need to import the CSV file with the redeemable codes in. You can download that from the Apple Volume License site. If it's a free app, then it won't prompt you for any codes.

    You need two accounts.

  8. Cluster Reporting Widgets

    by , 12th December 2013 at 10:00 AM (The Progresso Geek)
    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.

    Below is a Progresso Cluster User Dashboard which uses 2 widgets (previously posted on this blog) but the establishment parameter in each widget points at a different school within the cluster. Hey presto! I can see a summary of a number of schools on a single page.

  9. ICT Tip #59 - Searching Emails (Outlook 2010)

    by , 3rd December 2013 at 04:46 PM
    We already covered tip #57 back in the summer and #58 was only interanlly relevant, so on to #59 we go - ICT Tip 059 - Searching Emails.doc. Based on Outlook 2010, but should be good for 2007 and 2013 as well.
