Year 1 Plan - current status

Have created the structure for my after school camera club blog.
It's http://stcenyddcameraclub.blogspot.com
I've created a few pages although the tutorials and techniques page will need a lot of links to useful YouTube articles, no point in re-inventing the wheel yet although I am really tempted to get pupils to record their own 'how to' videos on camera techniques and tips and tricks, youngsters might engage with their ideas more readily.

Got a FlickR slideshow embedded on the homepage.  Only problem is that it points to some of my photography, will obviously re-direct this to the students photography when their photography and outcomes are more well established.

Since this Blog is quite specific I'm going to explore the possibility of replacing the school newsletter with a school blog or maybe look at creating an eBook equivalent.  Will be quite a saving financially as it's expensive to photocopy 1200 newsletters for all pupils every term, especially when you consider that a lot of these pupils just leave them them lying about anyway.  Also, a more animated multimedia product might encourage pupils to actually look at it !

  1. Interesting, Rob! Let me know how the 'digitizing' of your newsletter goes - thinking of doing the same with the school magazine.
