https://www.theverge.com/2019/1/30/18204212/google-deleting-consumer-data-april-2 So this month has been a tricky one. We have faced significant technical challenges. Google in its Wisdom have removed all G+ Communities. This included our community where we communicated with the group. We used a mew platform called Mewe which has not proved as accessible to use as we hoped. https://mewe.com/
Our Connected Classrooms session was full of lots of ideas relating to how teachers and children can communicate beyond their classroom walls. This could be with the classroom next door, in the next school ,the next town or indeed any international schools. We demonstrated the use of e-twinning and Microsoft educators Communities as a potential … Continue reading Connected Classrooms
When our students joined us on the online course they were asked to complete a survey on their emotional resilience and teacher identity.

Happy New Year Everyone.
We are slowly building our community on Google+ we have members joining us and introducing themselves. Some of them have even done the first activity. So the responses are really lovely to see.
We have data coming in from the initial data collection which is on Emotional Resilience and Teacher Identity.
A quick look at the data so far suggests that 75% of the people who have completed the survey have not done an online course before. We hope that they are developing the ABL skills we have embedded in the activities we have designed.
We have not recruited as many participants as we might have hoped and perhaps this is indicative of the busy role of a teacher. To try and encourage recruitment we have emailed all the people who initially expressed an interest but may not have enrolled. We have Duncan who is working with our partnership schools and Headteachers to encourage uptake. We are also taking to social media this week to offer this opportunity more widely.
We have designed our programme of events that will be hosted on Google sites. You can see our customer facing page on this link. https://sites.google.com/view/future-focused-teachers/home Google sites is an excellent platform to host the course from. It works just like any other shared document in that all of the team can contribute remotely. It looks … Continue reading Our exciting course
