We had our first Exc-el Board Meeting this afternoon.
Members of the group are: myself, Karen Robertson, David Gilmour and Elizabeth Cowan (ICT team); Ronnie Summers HT Musselburgh Grammar School; Lynn Lewis, class teacher, Pencaitland Primary; Ollie Bray, Depute HT, Musselburgh Grammar; Ewan MacIntosh, ICT team and LTS; Ann Johnston, Librarian, Dunbar Grammar; Dave Wharton, HT West Barns Primary; Tess Watson, Biology teacher, Knox Academy.
The group will be meeting on monthly basis for the rest of this session. We explored our vision for the next three years; how we take account of negative feelings towards blogging; an outcome focused CPD programme; project management programme for implementation; double site access edubuzz (pupils) and exc-el (others); and a business plan for a commercial spin off.
We agreed to invite 4 pupils to join our group but there is space for a parent member – any interest? Next meeting 26th February 4.00pm.
Last point – number of visitors acessing exc-el in December = 48,900
