Most popular activities?
While most teachers start with links
and information, it quickly grows
into discussion areas, self-checks,
and online assignments.
It also make great web glue!
Extending the classroom
5% of all this traffic occurs
after school hours; and this
trend is increasing.
That's an exciting direction. This can improve parent awareness
of school activity and help create connections between the
student home life and their work in the classroom
It's not just on a computer either ... think P.O.D.

What teachers are saying ...
Thanks for the super day. Best inservice I've had in years!
(Hythe Elementary May 2009)
There was no pressure in doing this session, very hands on.
(PRSD PD Day Sept 2009)
hey, would I have anything to share if it weren’t for your instruction
one-community?? It’s all teamwork.
(Penson May 2009)
What teachers are saying ...
Thanks for all your work and patience this year (Moodle Year
End Survey June 2009)
I just wanted to say thanks for last week!! It was nice to have
time to work and use your brain. Thanks for all those great
ideas. (Harry Balfour Sept 2009)
And thanks for your work this year on moodle. I wouldn’t have
bothered trying to use it if there hadn’t been someone dedicated
to helping us out – an inservice just isn’t that great – they can
show it to you, but having you (and Jon) actually come out when
we were working on stuff and helping us get going was really the
key to getting us to use it. (PWA June 2009)
