    Web 2.0 Committee in Schools

    Hi All,

    I am just starting at a project at the School I work at, I was wondering if any other Schools have a web 2.0 Committee?

    I am about to relaunch our e-Learning Steering Group - if this is similar to what you are putting in place?

    As in a committee dedicated to opening up the school's website to pupils in new ways that allow them to contribute, share information, etc (as is the way of Web 2.0, information sharing, centred around the user, etc...)? We have a VLE group here, but I wouldn't really call the VLE completely Web 2.0 since all it has is a forum really (and a bad one at that). The head of Business and ICT seems to be doing better at that to be honest, got his Year 10 and 11 classes on Twitter and following his Twitter account dedicated to his lessons, does little Tweets for Sweets things where the first three to answer little questions (either in person or via a reply) get a nice little handful of sweets.

    Gotta give him credit, he's doing more than most of them.

    Hand picked members across the school from various departments - we originally had it as a voluntary thing but the people ideally I wanted in the group weren't the ones that were selected / chosen by the Head of Department.

    Through the group we launch new initiatives and I pass them by this working party of 8 members of staff before I go live with it across the school - any volunteers within the group can also trial things before everybody else - it helps drive things within departments as well as iron out any bugs before it goes across the whole school.

    We now have dedicated e-Learning time of 6 hour insets split across the school year - this allows all staff to sign up for something they are interested in learning more about - this time can also be used by staff to actually spend time creating a resource as we found in the past the major stumbling block for staff was actually having the time to put things into practice as we all know the "gained" time when year 11 and sixth form leave is usually soaked up with some other whole school initiative.

    I intend to create a student e-learning group similar to the above through representatives of the student council - I want to hear the views of the students as what they would like to see in their lessons and to hear what they thing works well and their ideas on how we can improve the service / facilities we have across the school - this I think will have a great impact on e-Learning across the school through pupil voice.

    Any questions, give me a shout.
