My team try to use ICT to communicate with teachers and lecturers. Once every year we take a day out to review our use and discuss new ways of working. Today was one of those days.
We discussed the various online services that we use. Services such as Jiglu, Blogger, Drop.io and Groupsite. We took the opportunity to tidy the online groups -- so don't be offended if you have been removed from some old ones.
We also spent some time adding to our Groupsite profiles. If you haven't already done so, don't forget to join the Computing Groupsite and add do your own profile. This is one of the new services we intend to use in the coming year.
Another new service we intend to use is Twitter. We created an SQA Computing Twitter account called, unsurprisingly, "sqacomputing" so please follow us at @sqacomputing. We will use it to notify followers about important news and events relating vocational Computing courses -- but we promise to use it sparingly so that you are not bombarded with updates.
One of the outputs from today will be a new and updated list of online groups that we use to support teachers and lecturers. Hilary will update the list of groups and post an updated summary sometime next week.
