Welcome to my new ICT blog

Hi all

I’m Naz, a mature student on my first year at the UoN studying to be an Early Years teacher. I have to say that I was not born in an era surrounded by technology, labtops, Ipads, social media etc. so I will have to listen carefully and have a play with everything that is thrown at me (not literally) I mean in terms of ICT.

I looked up the definition of a blog and according to ‘Oxford Dictionaries online’ a blog is;

‘a personal website or web page on which an individual records opinions, links to other sites, etc. on a regular basis’.

Today is my first ICT session and already I  have learnt something new, how to set up my own blog with the aid of a great website called Helen on ICT. Click on the following link for some very useful tips http://mypad.northampton.ac.uk/helenonict/, then go into resources from the menu and follow the introduction on how to get started on your very own blog! (it’s straight forward, even I have managed it!!).

I look forward to learning lots of new ideas and ICT resources that I can use in the classroom, and look forward to blogging again soon!!!!
