I am sure you can do better than my effort above
Welcome back after another very short holiday. I know this is perhaps the busiest time in the school year with Diwali, Sukkoth, Halloween, Firework night and eventually Christmas on the Horizon.
There has been some frenzied blogging and comments over on the subject leaders blog about firework pictures. Look at the More Fireworks post and related comments, there you will find examples of firework pictures, thankfully note all of these have been done in a 2Simple package!! Dan from Hatton has left a comment with a link to an on-screen firwork generator. Unlike some of the Firework screen savers on the download scene, this one operates by mouse movements and comes with effective firework bangs. Fireworks and the festivals that use them provide some great contexts for learning with ICT. If you are doing any work with fireworks this week or in the coming weeks, please do share. Even a simple picture done by someone in your class will serve as an inspiration or challenge to another Redbridge teacher or other reader of this blog

Easy to access and manage.
Once you have viewed your places of interest, create your own Mycam page and this will enable you to add your favourites for fast and easy access next time you want to view them.
What a great way to share places of interest.

Before uploading your first Podcast, you will need to login and create a channel, and for this you may need an atom wide account. If you don't have an atomwide account then email Anthony or (for a quicker response Gary Jelks). If all this sounds a little confusing, then don't worry a handy guide has been produced by the LGFL, this can be found in the box widget at the sidebar of this blog, or by clicking here.
To visit a school that has already begun to podcast, you can look @ Parkhill Juniors here, while the Redbridge Podcasting has started a blog to record their work over the coming year, click here for that. John Wix has also been busy with some of his children and the DJ Fanz podcast can be found here
If you have any difficulty listening to any of these pods, then please leave a comment.
Introduction to Leading & Managing Primary ICT -
So far this only has 1 delegate booked on, if I don't hear from anyone else by the end of the week I will need to cancel this event.

Please make sure that either yourself or your CPD coordinator books online for these courses, this allows us to photocopy enough notes and prepare coffee and biscuits.
