Hi all hope you've had a good day. Busy day for me starting to catch up on things that kind of got left by the wayside last week! I hope you all have plans to vote before the end of Wednesday so that we can find a winner - although I think that all the students that took part are winners the stories are so wonderful. My good friend Craig has designed us a certificate to use to award to students and you can download this from the WP Centrals Apps area on the WP Central page. He has provided both a word and a pdf file so you can use whichever is most useful to you. Editing and proof reading the stories will hopefully be done this week, I can't wait to see the book!

I'd love to keep using this ning during the year for collaboration and hopefully to involve each other in other events, we've got quite a nice network going here now! I hope you will all still use the ning to keep in touch and talk, I will probably be putting items on quite regularly so............see you around!!

Note: I know some people have difficulty accessing files at school so I have also added the certificates to my Skydrive to help :

What a good idea; especially as I was such a late entrant and had no working computers on the day!!!!. I'd like to know how many schools managed to 'see' one another as it's something I'd like to try next year. I've been told that you don't need to have Sky to use Skype. Must investigate.

Ok for those of us who are obviously stuck in an e hinterland - what is the Skydrive?

Oh I'm so sorry Liz!!! I do tend to get too techy at times please always tell me! Ok my Skydrive is an online file/photo sharing site that also has a blog attached to it (which I don't use) and a calendar along with other utilities . It's a free windows facility that anyone can use, you just need to set up a user ID, mine is linked to my msn account. Useful for sharing documents etc!

I love the thought of doing something else together now we have our little online platform and global community!
We managed to only 'see' our second school Julie - no sound - and my IT techie had told our first school we could not connect with them, don't know why. He also said Lancashire told him not to use Skype (I'm investigating that!) - anyone else have that problem?

Absolutely LOVED the certificate idea. I have alrady printend them all and I an sure the kids and their parents will be really and proud to have one.
Thank you once again.
I haven´t tried communication with anyone through skype because the students only come on Fridays here, but we might try this coming Friday and see what happens.
