    Kidblog: MyGoogle Docs
    An unexpected bonus in using google docs is that by using revision history (File - see revision history) I can see how and when any editing has happened. I've been able to make some quite well informed comments on the kids reports because of this!

    Programme Abstract
    A look into an eLearning classroom - what it looks like; what apps are used; what are some of the practical decisions you need to make before you embark on the journey, in planning your programme, and on a weekly/daily basis; and what you do when the tech fails. Now that you've been inspired by what others are doing - what next? This session will take a look at the process I went through before setting up my eLearning classroom. We'll also look beyond the hype of the tools and talk about the learning process that needs to come first in a successful classroom, eLearning or otherwise.

    Classroom arrangement
    I will be adding to this page and the management page as I answer questions from YOU and others.
    One comment a lot of teachers make is that they forget about using the computers as part of their regular teaching. Often that's because the computer/s are tucked away out of sight - perhaps along the wall or at the back of the classroom or even out in a shared area between several classes. Moving them into a more prominent position can be the changing point.

    When I first began looking at how to manage my classroom better I stumbled onto the inspired classroom wiki - I used this as inspiration to change my classroom last year.
    When I first rearranged my classroom I controlled who sat in which group quite rigorously - that gave them a 'home' group to get to at the beginning of the day. I also made sure that I rotated them - so that whoever started the day closest to the computer didn't finish the day there as well.
    For curriculum work I always start on the mat with the whole class and then have different activities for them to go off and do while I do small group work.

    This year I'm in a different classroom and have computers in several areas - I've been fortunate to have been given some extras. I have 3 clusters of computers:
