  28. Preparing for your school’s I.C. • If your school has not yet been scheduled, you can at least identify suitable rooms: • Front wall must be unobstructed (flat) solid wall space of minimum 3.6m wide by 2.8m high • Room to cater for at least 30 students • Power and data outlets must be on the front wall. Power outlet must be on back wall • Room must be accessible by all (i.e. not a particular teacher’s classroom). Consider disabled access as well

  29. Preparing for your school’s I.C. • Room should be secure(decent locks door/ windows) • Consider existing ambient noise levels • Location of room (eg. beside COLA?) • Carpet on floor? • Library/Computer labs may not be suitable due to loss of access when a VC needs to be run • Long rooms can be a problem for the rear camera/microphones • If you need to build a wall, ask a TA for advice ASAP • When selecting your Connected Classroom, consider future – not current – requirements

  30. Learning Tools Project • An email service for 1 200 000 school and TAFE students replacing the UNISYS email service • 122 000 school and TAFE teachers to have the same email service as DET corporate staff by migrating existing accounts from UNISYS to DET’s “in-house” email service • Access for parents/caregivers to view their children’s reports online • A secure online workspace for staff and students to create, store, edit, reuse, manage, view and deliver digital learning content from collections and repositories • An adaptable and scalable system able to deliver the latest Web 2.0 technologies to staff and students for example blogs and wikis Learning Tools Project (LTP)

  31. Learning Tools Project • “Blogging” is educationally soundhttp://halfanhour.blogspot.com/2009/04/blogs-in-education.html • • Blogs provide a space for sharing opinions and learning in order to grow communities of discourse and knowledge — a space where students and teachers can learn from each other. • • Blogs help learners to see knowledge as interconnected as opposed to a set of discrete facts. • Blogs can give students a totally new perspective on the meaning of voice. As students explore their own learning and thinking their distinctive voices emerge. Student voices are essential to the conversations we need to have about learning.

  32. Learning Tools Project • The worldwide audience provides recognition for students that can be quite profound. Students feel more compelled to write when they believe many others may read and respond. • The opportunity for collective and collaborative learning is enormous. Students have the opportunity to read their classmates’ blogs and those of others. This is not possible in a regular classroom setting. • Blogging provides the possibility of connecting with experts about the topic on which they are writing. • The interactive nature of blogging creates enthusiasm for writing and communication.

  33. Learning Tools Project • Blog Trial Commenced Term 2, 2009 (4 May – 19 June, 7 weeks) 17 schools (17 teachers / 30 students per class = 510 users) • Participating Schools: • Arthur Phillip HS Belmore South PS Birrong GHS • Bletchington PS Bligh Park PS Buladelah CS • Canterbury South PS Dapto HS Darcy Road PS • Fairfield HS Hampden Park PS Mount Ousley PS • Mullumbimby PS Newbridge Heights PS Newport PS • Sydney Distance EHS

  34. Learning Tools Project • Trial Purposes: • Gather user feedback on the benefits of blogs to student learning • Assess the adequacy of the blog in relation to the business requirements • Test the usability of the blog, including workflow, roles and responsibilities • Determine the quality and appropriateness of application help • Assess and inform the continued development of support materials • Gather user feedback to guide future iterations of the blog • Assist in determining the timeline for the wider release of the blog and/or future iterations

  35. Learning Tools Project • The “Blog” combines four applications: • Blogging tool • Media Library - enables uploading, formatting and storing of files, images, video etc for display within the blog • Group Builder - integrates with ERN and CLAMS so that teachers can identify a class and make a blog available to the group • Advanced Group Builder - accessed via the Applications Management Utility (AMU), enables mixed groups to be created, for example across schools
