SSDN and more flags to make!
Today I mentioned SSDN to the children as the next exciting thing happening with ICT. I did my best to explain a little about what it would be like, the Scottish Schools Digital network.
'There will be a giant website with lots of amazing things to see and do. Think of some of the great things we have seen on the BBC website and games we have played on poissonrouge.com." They listened intently..... "there will be a single sign on to access everything,' I said. "one user name and password and that's it" Now I was talking their language. Thank goodness for that I heard someone say. My class are obsessed with knowing passwords and usernames. They proudly announce the password for signing on the blog and are pretty miffed that I won't reveal my internet access password! Funny the things that bother them.
They were desperate to see the flags of the visitors to my blog and pretty impressed that I had a new country that had not looked at theirs. They have now seen the Vietnamese flag and found it in Kidspiration.
Owen and Samuel are completing their article for the CalMac magazine about the teddy project and will e-mail it next week. I shall post it on the Teddy blog as well as they have worked really hard on it.
