Afternoon meeting with Dean

Had a great afternoon meeting with Dean to organise our PD's this week.Kathy dropped in as well, and we explored this gem of a website.

Wordle is a toy for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. You can tweak your clouds with different fonts, layouts, and color schemes. The images you create with Wordle are yours to use however you like. You can print them out, or save them to the Wordle gallery to share with your friends.

I create this image using the data from this blog.


Week 3, Blogging Blues.

I've just realised how hard it is to blog. I did plan to make brief entries to the where-abouts and happenings of my days, but as you can see I haven't kept up with that. So, taking the pressure of myself, these post will probably be shorter and more intermittent.

Last Friday I attended a small conference discussing issues relating to the VET Multimedia subject I teach. I think it was pitched a little below where I am, but I did take away a list of web resources that I want to explore.

I had my first VET Multimedia classes last week at HSC and ABSH. All went well.

This week I must prepare for a PD that I'm am delivering about Studywiz. I am also preparing documents for staff about how to use the intranet.

Things at PIC are going ok, students start this week.

The next few weeks will be trying as I will need to manage my time between the two schools.

Outcomes of Meeting

I need to book Studywiz PD for myself and other staff

I have booked Dean into talk to all staff about the E potential survey and how to use it properly.

Dean pointed me towards the e planning rubix and I have downloaded it.

I have sent an email to the TSSP about the SIPS road map.


As I mentioned in my last email, I am looking at completing the sips road map documents. It seems we do have to do them again for 2009.

I been notified that the sips inventory due to be revised before the end of February?

Can please advise me of your timeline of completion so we can begin and complete the Sips road map.

It will also be great to have you input into sips road map.

I've spoken to Bob about the college website and he has told me you will look at it on Friday.

I will endeavor to drop in on Friday. Cheers.
