To Bee or not to BeeBot

Just back from the U17 MacDougall League Cup Shinty Final. Kyles were victorious against a very determined Oban team. The final score 5-1.

Part of being a Masterclasser in Argyll and Bute involves submitting a folio of our ICT activities which can be viewed on Andrew's website. We are then allocated funding at either basic, intermediate or advanced level to purchase ICT related items to enhance learning and teaching skills. Last year I purchased extra licences for Kidspiration, 2Simple software and bought the new KidPix Deluxe 4 which has certainly been a hit with the children and covers many aspects of ICT skills. You wouldn't think it would be hard spending money but it's a bit like standing in a sweetie shop, surrounded by so many goodies unable to make up your mind. Anyway, I think I am almost there and I am definitely getting some Beebots. We have one in our Pre-5 Unit and it is just so cute....We have a Roamer in school and I got some support materials for it last year but the Beebot so fits the bill for infants and I can use some of the Roamer mats for it as well. I shall tell you about the progress of my purchases once they arrive and how I have been using them in due course-watch this space.
