March Subject Leaders

We began with this rather amusing video from German TV that parodies IT support. We then had a presentation from Bill Gent on preparing for Ofsted.

We were also joined by Ophelia Vanderpuye, an AST from Brent and star of Teachers TV. She talked to us about how using 2Type has greatly improved the typing skills of her pupils, at Oakington Manor Primary. She also showcased Podium, podcasting software from Softease.
Gary Jelks from the IT Unit demonstrated Click2 Meet, a video Conferencing application from LGFL. He gave all those attending a Webcam, if you missed out, and then be sure to pick yours up in the next meeting. Later we looked @ how to use to download videos from YouTube. Remember though you must respect copyright and not promote YouTube to your children.
