It was Laura McInerney interviewing Sam Freedman about the content of Academies Week – it seems to have come out rather well…

Resources and advice for #NQTs Sept 2014

With the new school year I am cranking up the L4Lnews podcast once again.

The first audio podcast of the new academic year in the UK is devoted to a few pointers to resources and advice for NQTs. As I say in the podcast, my first NQT year was a bit of nightmare – I would hope support systems are in place that are so much better now if similar things were to happen.

Even if your first year is a dream ticket I would still encourage you to go online, browse and engage with the various teacher communities out there – they can be extremely useful.

If you have time have a quick listen here:

It works

I rarely post about computer kit these days unless I come across something exceptional. Equipment for teachers has to serve a need that can’t be met elsewhere and it has to be quick, easy, functional and work flawlessly each time. This piece of equipment was developed with a specific need in mind – places where networks don’t exist and/or are locked down.

Advantages

When I read about the Library Box 2.0 Kickstarter campaign last year I could immediately see the advantages for schools.

1) NOT linked to the internet unless you want to.
2) A wireless router/ file server that can be battery driven.
3) Turn on any computer/ phone and fire up a browser on any device – you can access the files on the box through the browser.
4) A simple text messaging app that allows students to communicate with each other. (This can be turned off).

It can act as a simple library for students to access

- worksheets
- ebooks
- software
etc.

Extremely Portable

So obviously it can serve up pre-loaded materials on an ad hoc basis. If you use something like a Trent iCruiser portable power unit to power it then you are a walking router/ file server with 27 hours battery life – it goes where you go.

You are no longer tethered to the school network and you put on it what YOU want in terms of resources.

Your IT technician will hate it. I will be bringing it to a couple of conferences and TeachMeets next term.

Use it wisely

I cannot recommend it enough but I would caution unrestricted use – you WILL need to write a policy surrounding this piece of kit for specific use. At base level it is a portable e-book library that anyone can have access to quickly and efficiently. You can put as much or as little content on there as you want. YOU are in control not the school systems. You can use it for staff development or short term CPD / delivery of resources at point of contact. SLT might wnt to put all their relevant Ofsted docs on it and turn it on when the inspectors turn up at no notice…(be prepared to encrypt the info naturally).

If you want to show your appreciation for all the work, time and money that goes into these projects please do donate:

There is a very small donate button under this line – please help out if you enjoyed the films…all films are creative commons licensed and can be used in INSET and disseminated with attribution – just let me know the domain you’d like to put them up on or if you need a copy.


And if you don’t want to donate then maybe you want to share the existence of the resource – please use the “share this” widget at the bottom of this blog to spread the word.

COMMERCIAL WORK

Don’t forget I also do commercial work which subsidises the philanthropic aspects of what I do – sometimes it can be a very tight financial tightrope to walk but look at my list of clients here and see the companies I have worked with.

Bear me in mind if you need professional filming or streaming done as this does subsidise, indirectly, (petrol, batteries, diskspace, CF cards mostly!) the filming I do for other events for free.
