Monday 9th August is a statewide curriculum day for Ultranet implementation in Victoria.
For readers who are outside of Victoria, Australia, the Ultranet is a $60.5 million online portal for teachers, students and parents in Victorian government schools. Read my post on my initial thoughts on the Ultranet here.
I am a Lead User at my school, Leopold Primary School and we came online in Cycle One in May.
While I remain somewhat sceptical that the Ultranet will actually work on August 9th, we have come up with a detailed plan for training the staff on this day.
Catering for our integration aides was a consideration in our planning.
While our integration aides will be participating in the basic Ultranet and Web 2.0 workshops, we are also allowing them time to explore useful websites that they could use with their students on classroom computers.
I have prepared the following handout for our integration aides, which may also be useful for primary school teachers.
