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!
