On Friday we had the second training session today with the East Lothian Teachers who are taking part in our 2009 Guitar Hero Transition Project. Building on the success of the pilot project in the Musselburgh Cluster last year we are scaling the project up to include all clusters within East Lothian.
The first part of the morning gave cluster teachers a chance to come together to work on their project planning and to exchange ideas.
Next David Gilmore gave a brief overview of how to use Google Sites for education we hope that schools will think about using Google Apps, GLOW and other Web 2.0 tools to help collaborate during the project.
Finally, I gave a short presentation on how we developed the Secondary Transition morning and also shared some of the evaluation results from our 2008 project. The slides I used during the presentation are embedded below.
There was a great buzz from the teaching staff in the room – I think the next stage of the project is going to be fantastic!
