    Re: New Edugeek Users - Introduce yourself here :)

    Have been meaning to hang around here for ages. I've been posting on the TES ICT forum for about a year and recognise a few names from there.

    I work as a specialist ICT teacher / coordinator / network manager in a Primary School in London, my experience goes back to BBC Bs, 380Z and Nimbus networks.

    My typing is poor and I hate emoticons.

    Re: New Edugeek Users - Introduce yourself here :)

    Hello All.

    I work within three schools in Barnsley, South Yorkshire as Senior Network Engineer and do everything from fixing printers up to servers.

    I work at:

    Hunningley Primary School
    The Barnsley Academy
    Royston High School

    One of my main projects at the moment is developing a Joomla site for Royston High School and this place seems to be the dogs danglies for support. I'm using the JoomlaGeek template at the minute on a testing WAMP server internal to the school and my aim is to develop everything internally, test and then finally move it onto the internet.

    I'm sure i will get to know you all when i start to post on here!

    If you want a laugh at the current websites my schools have click below:

    http://www.roystonhighschool.ik.org/
    http://www.roystonhigh.org.uk/parents/prospectus.htm

    http://www.barnsley-academy.org/

    Catch you all later,

    All the best, Ben

    Re: New Edugeek Users - Introduce yourself here :)

    hi to all the geeky types who also work in the farce known as the british education system

    i work for a medium sized secondary in barrow-in-furness, cumbria (thorncliffe school)
    i'm 26 and rapidly age-ing thanks to the job lol
    we are currently in special measures (joy of joys) although the IT department and facilities were one of the few things to get a satisfactory scoring from ofsted

    we have a total of 300 clients, pretty much all XP and 7 servers, all server 2003
    my specialist area seems to be making hundreds of machines work on about £3.50, creating machines from nothing, rolling out complicated systems yesterday as no-one tells me whats going on and generally holding my head in my hands or banging it against walls, although lately i think i've made my way through the brick and found the re-inforced steel bunker lining behind

    this summer i will have been here for 4 years

    anyway, if i can be of help i will and i imagine most things i will find through searching

    in whats left of my life by the time i leave here each day i like to play battlefield 2142 when i can (not too often), i tend to spend a lot of time on the owners club website for my car (SXOC) and i watch a lot of telly with the missus

    so um, howdy and on to the next challenge/farce/chaos

    Re: New Edugeek Users - Introduce yourself here :)

    Well, I thought it would be polite to introduce myself. I've used this website as reference since starting my job - but now I've took the next step, and I'm a member!

    I'm John - a University Undergraduate on Industrial Placement. Aged 20.

    Job Title: Website & Virtual Learning Environment Technician
    School: The Mountbatten School, Romsey, Hampshire

    Edit: I'm actually 21, not sure why I wrote 20 - not been 20 since November. Wishful thinking!

    Re: New Edugeek Users - Introduce yourself here :)

    My name is Richard (bet you didn't guess that), I am a technician at a large school in Brighton, my primary area of responsability is Windows Servers, although as with everyone I am sure I am also asked to do many other things.

    I have just come up to 3 years working in School IT, two at my current job one at my previous. Before that I spent 4 years at university studying for BSc Computer Science, while I was studying I did an industrial placement with HP... and that pretty much sums up my IT experence, unless you count the random part time technical support job I did while at university.

    [edit]Oh... I have also played EVE Online for the past 3 years... seen a few EVE avatars on here, and 90% of the players are IT peeps it seems.[/edit]

    Re: New Edugeek Users - Introduce yourself here :)

    Good evening all...

    My name is John and I'm an ICT Technician at Hawkley Hall High School in Wigan, Lancashire. Been there for just over a year now.

    I'm 21 (22 in 10 days), graduated from uni last year with my degree in Information Systems. During my degree I also worked part time for a major Utility company as an IT Engineer.

    I'm liking the education sector thus far... It gives a real sense of being able to make a difference now that the use of IT has become so infuential in schools.

    Re: New Edugeek Users - Introduce yourself here :)

    Hi guys,

    My name is Matt (no way!) and I'm 26. Currently working at Hanson School in Bradford as their Network Manager - been here for almost 4 years now. We're just in the process of a rather large network migration where we're moving from two seperate windows 2003/netware (sob) networks to a single windows 2003 mega network.

    I've worked in education ICT support since leaving school at 18 - Dixons CTC (as it was then) employed me for a year as an ICT techie before I moved on to Yorkshire Martyrs Catholic College, had a 6 month stint at Provident Financial in an attempt to see how things worked in the private sector, went back to Yorkshire Martyrs for a couple of years after being headhunted and now I'm at Hanson.

    In terms of certifcation, Im A+ and N+, keep looking at the MCSE but now MS have said its on its way out I don't know whether to bother going down that track or waiting for the new one to come about.

    Skillsets, like I'm sure is the same with most of you - know bits about lots and lots about bits. I look forward to being able to get help on things I get stuck with as well as hopefully lending a hand to people who are stuck with problems I've come across before/know something about.

    Didn't know this place existed until the reg story was posted up re sophos, glad I've found it.

    Matt
