I am new to this forum, so have called myself 'verygrumpy' as I have found memory4 teachers pretty poor. My mate, who is also unhappy with M4T, is a director of a company who paid to be on the stick, and he has just received a renewal invoice! He was told his upfront cost last year was for the whole 5 years and now is being chased for what he paid last year as an annual payment!! My mate says 'the contract is pretty vague but who wants to go to court!'! Do other teachers actually use the stick for its intended purpose? Are you guys happy with it? Does it do what it says on the tin? Does anyone know know what M4T said they would do for teachers, and have they delivered? Do you guys ever read their emails to teachers? Have you got your sticks - I haven't?? Would love to know your experiences guys and gals as I am 'verygrumpy'!!
All I can add to this is that several staff here applied, and, you guessed it, no sticks yet, not that it matters as we'll be phasing them out over the next few years anyway in favour of a combination of Moodle / Mahara / Remote access (far less risk of pupil data escaping)
Thanks TR. How long have they been waiting?
we never got the sticks , ever not one and nearly the whole school signed up
Thanks KiwiMatt. How long ago was that?
I'd forgotten all about these guys - we all signed up here too ages ago... All teaching and support staff. And, like everyone else - nothing. I'm guessing it would have been about the beginning of 2009 ish, but don't quote me on it. Equally so, we've had nothing at all from them, no spam, no nothing. Curiouser and curiouser!
over 2 years now we aren't holding our breath for them here ....... only positive thing i can say is that staff emails haven't been spammed as of yet
Cheers Solitaire & Kiwimatt, mmmmmm? They said it was 5 year project but seems it may fall into a grave before then!
On advice from ICO I have now made a DPA request to the company about my information, how it is used, who has access to it and how it would be removed if I request it. This was made on Monday after repeated requests for a representative of the company to address concerns I have in my professional capacity.
If (and probably when) the reply period expires I will be able to lodge a formal complaint and take it further.
It is not as if I have not made frequent attempts to contact them and would welcome any direct contact details if you have the, @verygrumpy.
