Our next trial is with Fairfield High and Nic has been trying to sort out the network capabilities there. Looks like it’s too risky to run the software on such a frail network so Hayley is going to bring the group up to the training suite at the University. It’s frustrating that the state of school networks and IT infrastructures are so varied across the city because it must have such an impact on what teachers can do in class.

We have agreed to run two sessions up at the University – we’ll concentrate one on the Roman stuff and then bring in the Victorian. It’ll be interesting because this time we’re not going to work with the Gifted and Talented cohort. Instead we’re going to have a broader mix of attainment and a good number of students for whom English is their second language. For the sake of comparison, we’re aiming to stick to the same kind of basic activities we used at St Mary Redcliffe. Will be interesting to see how things go.
