Staff meeting

Discussing going 1:1 computer programmes. A lot of the staff think that we are not ready for 1:1 problems being that some staff are not skilled enough. Some staff think some classrooms at the moment don't have much equipment. Also a support person would be required to help those people that are chosen to be a 1:1 classes like Parkvale. One thing to look at is that we should not look at the teaching that was happening at Parkvale. We need to watch what they do and see if we can do it better. One thing that was interesting was most teachers talked as though they would be taking the class. Bring your own device was a suggestion from Paul. Once our wireless system is up and running.
