Just a quick post today, on Thursday I am planning on meeting with some ICT guys from our local secondary school. This came about because a friend of mine mentioned on Twitter he’d been to see a guy at a local school and it turned out to be mine. Now don’t get me wrong, I was planning on contacting them at some point anyway, but this sped it up a bit.
So what do I want to talk to them about?
What is the point of meeing with them?
Will meeting them actually make any difference?
What should we even be talking about? Moderating ICT levels? Sharing ideas? Collaboration? Accessing their VLE? Sharing their equipment? What would you be asking them? Or if you are from a secondary school, what would you want to be telling me as a primary school?
One definite thing I am going to ask for their support with is a local gifted and talented day for Year 6 children. We will do one with Y2 as well, but I don’t think they’ll want to get involved with that one.Another is that we will probably get some access to their Moodle and the children in Year 6 will be able to have a bit of a play beforehand. This is fine, but we have mixed year5-6 so it might make it tricky. But we shall see.
Any tips and ideas would be welcome as I haven’t had a secondary school interested in sharing before, but the potential is enormous. I think.
