Face to Face

February 4, 2008 § Leave a comment

This morning I visited Gideon Williams, Head of ICT at Perins School. During the visit I witnessed a Year 9 top set working on Windows Movie Maker, a French class practicing their vocab and most importantly I was able to sit and discuss ICT Middle Management with Gideon. Incidently, I was also reminded about the power of search engine Dogpile, as one student noted, ‘it was good for everything.’ Without doubt the most important part of the morning was exchanging ICT structures, strategies and solutions with Gideon and also seeing how he was using Moodle to support his teaching LIVE. We hope to continue these conversations and are looking to bring our schools a little closer through a collaboration and sharing our schools Sport College status.

Again, my thanks to Gideon and Perins School.

Finally, as usual, car time is spent listening to the Edu-pod. The most important thing a Middle Leader can do with positive feedback is to share it with their team. Well, I thought it was sufficiently important enough to write into this posting.

On returning to school, I was able to only follow up one or the two student issues that occurred on Friday. I strongly believe that following up all incidents is essential.
