The Week Ahead
ICT this week
So far I've managed to meet both Year 4 and 5 classes, D6NS, D1LW and D2VF. We will start the new Switched on ICT Units of work on Thursday and Friday. However, to start the week I will meet with the other classes and do the introductory lesson.
Wednesday 11th September
The LTMs planned to be on their own site this Wednesday but we will now be meeting Lisa Rabolini (Gateway Developer) to discuss the new Gateway pages. I'll be at JSV for most of the morning. Remember, our Wednesday plans are now on the school term overviews.
Thank you to those of you who are logging your technical issues via Gateway and email. Please continue to do so!
Have a great week!
Twit of the Week
This week my Twitter recommendation is Mark Anderson - @ICTEvangelist. I met him during my week with Apple in the summer. His tweets are informative and useful, despite the odd Twitter name! Good place to start if you're new to Twitter.
If you're looking for some free CPD this year then look no further than www.edx.org. Created by Harvard and MIT, edX is a completely online and distance learning platform. Courses range from Computer Science to Music in the 20th Century. Not just IT courses!
New Apple Products
This Tuesday will see the launch of some new Apple products like the rumoured iPhone 5S and 5C as well as a new iPad based on the iPad mini design. There will also be some software upgrades that will affect our class iPads. More news on this next week.
