adding voki

Had a bit of a time working this one out. I’m sure that a lot of people very much brighter than me worked it out a lot quicker but here is how I did it


  • Step 1 – Set up a Voki account. You seem to get more embed otions that way. 

  • Step 2 – Create a new Voki and save it. 

  • Step 3 – Underneath your Voki by the green number 1 choose embed in “WordPress” from the drop down 

  • Step 4 – Copy the code 

  • step 5 – Open Wordpad or notepad 

  • Step 6 – Copy the code into wordpad/notepad 

  • Step 7 – From the code copy out the text that starts http://vhss and ends in numbers before  “>< PARAM 

  • Now click on the flash embed button on the toolbar above
  • Paste this url in the box and click ok
  • Give the predefined width and height (300,400 or 200, 267) and click ok
  • Update post
  • job done
  • Should be a working voki below (fingers crossed)

Getting Back into Teaching

Had a very busy couple of days in Clackmannan Primary since my return from LTS where I was a Development Officer for the Consolarium.  One of the jobs I had to undertake as part of that remit was to help keep the Consolarium Blog up to date.  I found this a really valuable exercise as it forced me into evaluating the work I had been doing really closely and provided regular opportunities for me to step back and see the impact it had been having – and this is something I really wanted to develop on my return to school.

I have had all the Glow accounts for pupils provisioned and I should have admin rights for the school site by the end of the week so will be able to make a start on building our school Glow community pretty soon after that.

I have a teaching commitment of two and a half days a week this year teaching p7, p6/7 and p2/3 so I am using this opportunity to get some practice embedded and to look at promoting this across the whole school.  This term I intend to get the following things up and running

p7 – a range of presentation tools including moviemaker and prezi

p6/7 – introduce blogging and get all children working on their own blog

p2/3 – using some elements of purplemash that have been provisioned and are freely available through Glow

I will blog about the progress we make regularly – promise!


The cry of the primary schoolA Big Boy Did It And Ran Away !
Big plans this session to get our p6/7 pupils up and running with personal blogs and a class blog set up for at least two classes. I will be using this blog to stay at least two steps ahead – hopefully.
