Hi all.

It has been a long time since I have made any activity on this page, so I thought I might just start a blog about my School and some of the great work that is going on. During the next few weeks I will add lots more stuff about the innovative work we are doing and some of the great results we are seeing in our kids.

But, I do have an agenda. I would love to take the opportunity to nominate my colleagues James Rammage and Kathryn O'Bree for their amazing work on using…

Well, as all of you in Victoria probably already know, 1:1 computing is here, in the form of the government's Netbook trial. My school happens to be one of the 300 and something that have been chosen to participate and as the head of IT in the school I can honestly say I am excited, to say the least.

I have sussed out the software package and reviewed the computers themselves and I think this may be a big coup for those of us who believe the future is not the future any more, but the now.… Continue

I think I have corrected all of my problems now. It seems that the major problem was IE. Now that I have tried using Firefox everything seems fine. Let's hope that this trend continues and I may blog until my heart is complete.

Hi Chris,

With your interest in Online Collaboration, I recommend you take a look at Wiziq's virtual classroom and authorstream's power point presentation platform. Both are web based platforms, have a bunch of features and free basic service. Here’s a public class recording conducted by Nellie Deutsch on Technology Integration.

Hey Chris,
how are you going with thinking about a collaborative project with your kids? Have you made any connections?

Hey Chris,
I got a message that you were trying to add me as a contact on SKype - but whenever I signed in, I didn't get any message there. My skype name is jess.meyer. What is yours? I'll add you that way.

Hi Chris, the easiest way I find to share ppt files, if I had created them, is to save them back to 2003-7 format (making sure that the file is not too big and therefore any images resized), and then upload them to Once uploaded you can grab the code, goto the html tab of your post and paste the code in there. You can also actually have a go at uploading them directly through one of the multimedie upload buttons (near the upload images button). However, that hasnt worked so well for me. See this post for an example
To share documents, I find it easiest to convert the docs to google docs (word or sheet). So you will need a gmail account and key it straight into the doc and publish it. It gives you a web url which you can paste into the post and students just click on that link to access it. Hope this all makes sense.

Wow, you are doing great stuff! A group of us are just setting up an open moodle to make available outside our schools, maybe for other teachers, homeschoolers etc. Quite cool fun.

what!!!! How crazy is that? We are blocked out of our class blog for grade 4 and 5 would you believe so I have to get the techies to unblock that!! Grrr!! Another good online tool is for mindmapping and brainstorming. Simple to use

Hi Chris This is so good to see you here. Did the problem with your blogging and adding friends fix itself as I know that Scott was having problems too. If it persists leave a comment on Steve Hargadon's page. However, if you have started blogging you are well on your way to using web2.0 Take little steps all the time as it can get really overwhelming. Did you also start delicious as that is also a great start?
