During our first 2 weeks blogging in school, the first thing that has dawned on me is that I could possibly be a bit of an internet geek, and that despite their capabilities with ICT, our students, and indeed colleagues, aren’t quite as clued up about the web as some of us. In fact, that’s not quite accurate, many of the pupils just inhabit a different areas of the web to those that I am used to.
So with this in mind I decided to write a little guide to a better web experience. A little biassed as it is towards my personal favourites of Firefox, Yahoo & Google I hope its of use to my pupils and anyone else who stumbles across it.
As a first major piece of writing I suppose I have put on the web it is difficult to know if it is pitched appropriately. I wanted to keep it concise, but also realise that to the uninitiated some tools on the web aren’t as intuitive as they could be (del.icio.us springs to mind).
Let me know what you think, and feel free to use it as you see fit.
