Being an enthusiastic Teacher of ICT and all things techie, not to mention a Tweeter! (I am learning lots of new innovative ideas within Education, and am keen to try them out). Unfortunately, too many of them are filtered or our school network can’t handle them.
Today, I was going to trial PBWorks in Education Wiki, and create an on-line learning environment for my Year 7 and 8 students – filtered. Next I thought I would set up Edmodo which is a secure social learning network for teachers and students – filtered. @lagerama sent me a brilliant link to some educational games and quizzes at Sitehoover – won’t load anything. Spelling City is a program I used a lot last year – filtered. VOKI was used last year – filtered. There have been other Web 2.0 applications that I have been keen to use and are either filtered or just won’t load. It just seems too much of a battle at times! What’s the answer? 😦
