    Hello! I've been lurking 'round these parts for some time but thought it'd be polite to finally say hello.

    I've been following/stalking some of the regulars on twitter already and want to see what else is going on in the education & ICT scene.

    I also robbed an edugeek lanyard from the stand at BETT and wear my corp ID card on it.

    You all knew about becta-x before I did, so I'm hoping to find out about exhibitions and stuff like that before the actual day next time!

    Disclosure: I work for a company who provides consultancy to schools. Not here to sell, don't worry. Just here to lurk and learn.

    Right, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to fix typos on the pedants' board...

    Welcome to edugeek and the pedantic geeks danieldainty

    You probably noticed that I decided to avoid apostrophe arguments in the name of the group! (I read Private Eye too often and they had endless arguments over the apostrophe in Pedants'/Pendant's/Pedants Corner )

    Introduction

    Hi from Brazil.

    I'm Bob Walker, and my current interest in ICT4E is due to

    1. my education background (Ed.D. from the University of Massachusetts),
    2. my current university teaching position at the Universidade de Brasilia, where I'm using Moodle to manage the three courses I'm teaching,
    3. my current consultancy, an evaluability assessment on ICT4E in Brazil (i.e., trying to discover whether it will be feasible and worthwhile to do a major evaluation for the ministry).

    Have a nice holiday weekend - and take a bit of time for contemplation, if you can!

    Bob

    Hi All,

    I've been reading this forum for a good year or so now... and finally decided to sign up the other week.

    I mostly deal with MIS systems, however I do a lot of fiddling round with PC's for various people at home.

    I look forward to conversing with you all

    Hey Guys and Gals.

    My name is Chris, I'm 24 from Bradford, West Yorkshire.

    I recently (well 2008) graduated from Leeds Metropolitan University with a Computers: Network & Communication Degree.

    A month a go or so I had an interview at a primary school for an ICT post. The interview went really well but didn't think I would get it because there were 5 other people interviewed that day and all I have under my belt is my degree.
    I don't have any knowledge in the actual workplace, as I have only worked at my local supermarket since leaving secondary school.

    But I actually got offered the job. I start next Monday (19th April). The job actually covers 3 different sites, or Pupil referral units, as they are all under the same school / headteacher (I'm not entirely sure how that works).
    So I have visited 2 of the sites (the 3rd one isn't under our full control just yet) and have a list as long as my arm. The 3 sites were maintained by 3 support engineers that cost £6000 per engineer for half a day a week, so cutting costs, they hired one technician to cover the 3 sites (at least 1 day a week).

    I'm greatly looking forward to this unique opportunity but as I said above, I have no experience. And my degree (mickey mouse degree if you wish) didn't cover deeply into Windows servers, active directory etc..
    So I am brushing up my skills with a bit of bed time reading ( well Windows Server 2000 Administrator's Companion isn't much of a quick read), So I could possibly be on here quite a few times.

    But, I'm going to make use on your search facility on your site (Which looks great btw!)

    To what I can see the networks look like this:

    Main Primary school:
    *1 Windows Server 2003 for curriculum,
    *50 odd clients running XP pro (A majority of computers and laptops are wanting replacing, there are 3 new Dell towers in a ICT suite of around 20 clients, which the old ones are taking 10 minutes+ to log in to the network, can anybody link me to a post or site about bulk buying? which is the best supplier similar to what Dell offers?)
    *1 separate unknown server running Sims serving 3 clients on an admin network (Which the ICT manager wants migrating with the main server, which is the best way to have Sims? and also needs upgrading to SQL2008 as of October)

    *PRU unit 1:
    *1 loaned Win 2008 server (Their original server died, this job is what i'm worried about, installing Win Server and setting up the network as soon as I start (Any topics linking would be greatly appreciated!)
    *50 Clients running XP Pro (No problems as of yet)

    *PRU unit 2:
    Unknown.

    If anybody has got some experience/guidance/topic linky's I would be every grateful!

    Thanks people!

    Hello, everyone. I'm a sometime lurker, and tonight I've finally taken the plunge and joined!

    I do all sorts of techie-ish stuff in a (small) university department rather than a school - I hope this isn't held against me

    Just thought I would stick my head in and say hi.

    I'm a Field Technician and Consultant for a small IT firm who deal with all aspects of IT mainly home users and small businesses though we also provide support for several local primary schools as well though I mainly deal with the former. I will say that I'm not here to represent the firm I work but as individual who wants to use this site as a resource.
