Sitting Exams


Forgive me if it seems to have gone a bit quiet. I have two big pieces of work underway at the moment - revamping my own site and completing the SSDN Mentor pack online movie. I need to have both finished within the next fortnight, and I have quite a few school visits to cram in there as well.

I usually give each day or event it's own post, but I'll have to put all these in the same post at the moment.

On Wednesday of this week I was teaching P6&7 in Innellan primary school all about making databases. It was great being back in a classroom again - you miss the buzz of being directly involved in kids learning when you aren't doing it on a daily basis.

Thursday was a meeting in Oban with the Steering Group to work on the script for the online mentor pack - my thanks to all at the meeting for their thoughts, insights and corrections! I think (after spending a bit of time on it today) that we are ready to run with it now - so all I need as an afternoon with a microphone to record it and then bury my head in Flash for a week! Once it's done I'll put the link here for folk to see. Thanks to those of you who commented so far - I was really looking for criticism though? The colour of the dotted lines needed to be stronger.

Big news this week is a wonderful success story. Graham Davidson from Tobermory High School has become the first 'Microsoft Office Specialist Master Instructor' in Argyll & Bute. There are very few in the UK, so this is quite an accolade - well done Graham! And who says it's only pupils that sit exams?
