It was good having my to-do list open on the iPad next to me as I kept track of what I needed to do. With One Note I can tick off what I have done and tomorrow I can delete those and add what has come up. It meant my first day felt like it was productive and organised because it was productive and organised! What is left will be completed in the next couple of days. Since I had my list to keep me focussed, I actually had fun and learnt along the way. Having it on the iPad meant I didn’t need to swap screens or shift anything around. I discovered how to message a whole class on the LMS and while I was doing that (with help from AP to navigate the less than intuitive interface for whole class messaging), I discovered we now have a mobile option for the LMS and I look forward to trying that on my phone on Thursday. Being able to access the LMS on a phone has its advantages when you either don’t have your laptop or you don’t want to have your laptop. When I arrive at school on Thursday I get there at lunchtime and need to use my phone to quickly work out what is on the LMS. I am hoping the mobile option makes that even quicker. We have also become pretty efficient at school at getting information around via email. It sustains a positive, personal contact as well as a sound information distribution network. The term is up and running and technology is providing solid support. I’d be lost without OwnCloud and DropBox. I have dropped files into both of them today to try and move past USB sticks. I have USB back up at present just incase there is no wifi access, but being able to use cloud services does streamline everything considerably.
