We held an Edubuzz Open meeting this afternoon.
We made some key decisions:
Make use of the Edubuzz blog as the front page to the site as opposed to the current page (which we would aspire to in the future) – we felt the current front page did not enable people to easily understand the purpose and background to Edubuzz, nor did it allow for easy access to blogs of particular interest, nor enable them to set up their own blog with ease.
Promote the edubuzz platform to teachers through: more direct promotion to Head Teachers – Ronnie Summers will make a brief presentation at our next HT conference; and more direct delivery sessions, such as Teach Meet, in schools; develop the Extreme Learning format which requires access to the platform; encourage blogging by probationers and students.
Organise a Saturday conference in the Autumn, probably at Musselburgh Grammar School.
Encourage a support more parental blogs
