A new school term has just begun, and for most people working school IT it’s one of our busiest times — hence the lack of updates over the last couple of weeks.
Fortunately, the busy period has resulted in a plethora of useful tips and guides which you’ll start to see over the next few weeks. My team and I are currently rolling out simultaneous iPad and Chromebook 1:1 projects for nearly 300 students , as well as pushing out Google Apps across a secondary school, so you’ll likely see a focus on Google and Apple technology.
In the next few weeks, we’ve also got some exciting new features making their way to your screen. To start with we’ll have a ton of Chromebook, Google Apps, iPad, and management information and advice. We’ll also have articles and videos from a European perspective — more on that in a minute — and we’ll also be building up our new Teacher Help Desk section for those little techno-niggles that no-one wants to deal with!
ClassThink on Tour
I’ve been lucky enough to be invited by the British Council to visit several schools in Denmark, so next week I’ll be travelling to Copenhagen to look at how ICT in Denmark differs from UK schools. Over 5 days I’ll be putting together a report on my experiences and be doing a regular vlog and site updates, so if you’d like to follow subscribe to the ClassThink YouTube channel.
Education Executive Magazine Column
If you read Education Executive Magazine — and why wouldn’t you?! — you may have noticed a familiar face in the September edition. My first print article has been published. In the column I answer some of the most frequent questions about Google Apps and how you can go about setting it up in your school.
