Photos and whiteboard notes

A couple of quick things.

A simple and quick way of taking exemplar work. After marking a set of lab reports today I took a couple of pictures of some good examples of some sections. I was then able to put them straight up on the board for discussion – very immediate if you have the camera and card reader there. This takes advantage of the projector in every room thing. Archiving these may have some value, though the immediate feedback is good – this aspect is worth some thought.

Whiteboard notes is progressing well, but there is a lot of fiddling to get into the right display mode quickly and to the right part of the text. This would be worth some thought. Have resisted publishing this so far, but it may be more important to support some middle school students, so I think I should revisit this decision.

Here the middle school web page may be useful. Certainly some thought needs to go into how to use this efficiently

Grade 11 students have used the graphical analysis part of logger pro with train data. This seems good, bit takes some time to teach and a manual for this in some form (video logs?) would be great.

  1. Added google gears to browser. This means I can use google docs offline. This way I can have a document on the desktop and edit it for whiteboard notes and make it accessible.

    Google docs isn’t as ‘full featured’ as word or OoO, but it should be enough.

    8C have gone on as a trial – share with Juli next week

  2. Have not used the sharing part of this yet. I am not confident that this material makes sense out of context and so am a bit nervous about this.
