So I think I’ve figured out how to make a time sensitive advent calendar in #GlowBlogs. A bit late. It might do for another time or another time sensitive project.

It involves the Draw Attention pro and my favourite plugin Display Posts.

I couldn’t test the idea at lunchtime as the network is down today.

There are a lot of good ideas for using Minecraft, I’ve found I need time to figure out how to use them in my classroom, so bookmarking for later.

It took me a while, but the results were great:

Sorry, we couldn't open the notes that you were looking for. They may have been moved or deleted, or you may not have permission to open them.

I’ve started trying to use OneNote again. Distributed pages to class then reviewing. I am getting this message frequently. Strangely I can access the pupils work gone through the tabs. I wonder if any #TeamMIEEScotland #mieexpert folk would have an idea.

I didn’t find the lack of video for pupils a problem during daily lockdown classes. This post goes over the reason why video might be a problem and lists some ideas for compensating.

also keeping in mind some people are voice shy, and some people have noisy home environments

Although from a higher ed perspective it all rings true from a primary perspective.
