Today’s eduBuzz Open Meeting provided as usual a rich source of ideas for next steps and feedback from a range of activities over the past month.
Topics covered included:
- Internet skills for staff
As use of the internet becomes more embedded in school activities this is highlighting an ongoing need for training in some fairly basic web skills for staff. A useful resource for WordPress training is the Stuck With ICT site developed by Andrew Brown of LTS.
- Internet safety for parents
- Comment spam
There were a couple of reports of nuisance comment spam, and the possibility of adding a Captcha check was discussed.
- WordPress upgrade
A few points of feedback from the recent software upgrade arose, including the loss of the coloured text facility.
