I thought I would share with you a new form of communication that the school is trialling at the moment.
I am sure you have all heard of twitter and tweeting. I used to think that this was only for celebrity news and that it certainly wasn't me. However, during my study last year I had the chance to explore the learning use of certain social media tools with one of the papers that I was working on.
Educationalists are finding that twitter is a wonderful way to share information. Or should I say another form of communication. If we are to engage with learners (which includes you as parents) then we need to meet diverse needs.
At the moment I am learning Google Analytics so I can find out how many of you visit our website, how many people use computers, or tablets or mobile devices. This is another way to find out what it is our parents like to do when they come to the website. This is one way of learning how to meet your needs for communication.
But back to twitter...Weston School now has it's own twitter account Weston School@SchoolWeston. If you Google Twitter and create your own account you can follow us. You may already tweet, in which case just follow us! You can also find out who else is following us and follow them!
Why would you want to?
I hope to see you out there in the twitter arena and I have just tweeted from the school about tomorrows PUM...who will find it?
If you look on the school's home page you can see our twitter link all the way down at the bottom of the page.
