I am concerned that you have to have camera on. In Glow Scotland’s Teams pupils cameras are not & can’t be turned on. I think that helped some shy kids.
The Register’s take
This is fascinating, there was a lot of opacity between me and my class, this opens it up a bit. Your daughter’s school sounds a lot more organised in a daily fashion than my class.
I ended up setting up a Minecraft edu server at home for the pupils to access. This turned into a social space as I set no real guidance, problem or focus. I thought of this as a playground. It certainly fits the description a place for play and experimentation.
I spend a couple of hours last night trying to set up Site.js on a Raspberry pi, I got it working locally, but fell at the https cert and I think my firewall.
Looks fascinating as does Small Technology Foundation Personal Web Prototype-01: a mobile personal web server which is a portable server you can carry about in your pocket. Put together from a pi and some bits I wish I could afford to buy the bits for that. Reminds me a wee bit of the piratebox.
hmm with a tinge of #ds106

I think blogging is a good description of what you are doing Aaron. Since I installed Alan’s Posted Today plugin I’ve been re visiting a lot of ancient posts here. Lots of my early blogging consisted of notes, bookmarks, replies and likes. Just not formerly organised into kinds.
I voted for Posts.
Fascinating read. Going to be a very useful starting point to to thinking about August 11, albeit my circumstances are very different. Delighted to see it coming to my RSS reader via ScotEduBlogs. Hopefully blogging is part of the new normal.
Heh, just catching up with the bava blog and I missed this;-)
I need a password reset Jim if you can send one.
Alan, I am with @mrkrndvs, ”

Not sure about kids but spending so much of the day online is sucking the pleasure out of the digital for me. I’ve nearly always got something digitally playful on the go, daft web pages, weird image stuff, but pretty dry at the moment. I did not expect this.
I am seeing a change in engagement with my class over time. I am still getting roughly the same numbers turning up to daily Teams meetings, but a slowing down of ‘handing in’ of tasks. I wonder if this is about not having classmates to spark off each other. Being physically away from the classroom meaning it is easier to skips things and other family routines becoming more important. It is really hard to tell.
