FDPS ICT Q&A
Keep on chugging!
In the mean time, here is this weeks IT newsletter, come Q&A minutes come... something else.
Chris A & Bek
P.S. There will be no ICT Friday next week as the Harmony Day breakfast is on.
A guide for accessing the DEC intranet at home. Sounds simple but it isn't the easiest thing to do and I find it very frustrating. Hopefully, this will help!
Zamzar allows you to convert all sorts of file types into different file types. Could be handy for converting Apple files to PC files or the other way around.
Padlet - Paper for the Web ... as it calls itself is exactly that. Paper, online! Actually, It's a bit more like a big wall that all the children (or indeed adults) can write on at the same time.
The Mathematics Shed
The staff that are participating in the differentiation project based learning course have been asked to sign up with Edmodo. This is a Facebook style website for the education world. It can be used by just teachers (where you interact with different groups of teachers – the differentiation group being an example) or by classes. We covered how to set up an account, edit your profile, set Five Dock Public School as your location and how to post in groups.
Recap from last weeks resources
Finally, we looked at last week’s flyer and the resources included. All flyers will be saved on my Smore homepage for you to look at whenever you like. As for Smore, I’m sure you can see that it is a tool to publish online flyers. It’s free to use (unless you want corporate analytical tools) and reasonably simple to use. If you would like more information on this website, feel free to come along on Fridays.
How do I access my DEC folder from home
Well, hopefully this IT newsletter should help with this. If you follow this link, look towards the bottom, right hand corner there should be a link to a PDF that explains the process.
Something to share
The Singapore Maths Teacher
Thanks to Liz (and Helen for reminding me) for showing me this. It's a website that contains a range of problems that are worked through on screen. It also fits into my maths theme for this week. Have a look!
