A new school year ...

It is hard to believe we are over halfway through the first term, time has really flown!

I set up a Google Sites page, class Twitter and blogs through Wordpress. I do like Wordpress I find it visually more appealing and easier to manage the students. Of course there were the usual problems with getting the kids online however they are all on and most have been posting. The Year 10s have been more into blogging and my Year 13s don't want anything to do with it. I created QR codes for each site and this was a big hit at meet the teacher night where parents got out their phones to get a direct link!

My mission at the moment is to learn about 'myportfolio' which I want to use with the students. I am also learning about making quizzes within Moodle and how to track data on Moodle. Any help in these two areas would be greatly appreciated.
