Say Hello to Trello

I have just been playing with Trello. For me, I have decided it’s a good place to organise my information as TrelloI learn Python coding. It’s a bit like Storify and Pinterest rolled into one. You can create different boards and add to them. You can label them, prioritise them in different ways and even collaborate with others on boards if they belong to Trello. You invite them. My Trello is set to Private but there are other options and you choose whether to share or not. It keeps a running list of what you have done which would be helpful if you are busy and trying to keep track of what you are doing. You can archive sections of boards and decide later if you want to delete them. If you check the settings and sidebar you can see there are so many handy options for collaboration and working on aggregating materials and resources. I could be writing my own comments as well.It’s free to join and use but there is a paid business version if you wish to pursue it. You can also run it in different languages.

How green is your office?

Harvard Education Leaf One Harvard Education has a green office sustainability project where the levels of achievement are graded by leaves. Leaf One is the easy level where you can do the obvious. The site offers you a PowerPoint for each level and some explanations as to how they have done it so that you can follow their lead and then pass it forward! I guess my clean and green week at school with the Clear , Cull and Clean motto has led us to the achievement of Leaf One. At the end of this week we have achieved so much and can see our way clear to the next step because we dared to confront the past and deal with it. We have to move on and let go the old resources. In a week we have reclaimed plenty of space. The office is so much tidier and lighter and we have been talking about the future. We have found some great treasures which were lost in the piles and piles of old resources. There also has been a natural flow of co operation, inspiration and organisation which has come from it just from sorting, throwing things out, recycling and thinking about how we can become more digital. It is , after all, the digital age. My hands have been black with dust and dirt, our students have seen us sort and clear and I have noticed some of them have had a locker sort out too. Since we have dared to clear then all the old resources which we have decided to keep for now are in one spot and can be easily removed and recycled when we have the digital replacements and avenues. As we have gone through the week then others have come on board and shared what they know and what they can offer so that we can move ourselves out of the past and into 2011…nearly 2012. I am going to look at the rest of the Harvard leaves because that might fast track me to where I want to be. They have done the field work for me. I can say though that just by tackling this clear, cull and clean it has generated plenty of momentum and regeneration and opened up a clear path forward.

What do you do with old video and cassette tapes?

Today I sorted a lot of old video and cassette tapes. I was wondering what I was going to do with them all. Maybe a library might want the better quality commercial ones. You cannot legally copy the commercial ones into digital form as far as I know. Free to air recordings might be able to be transferred but our resource centre manager said they would have to be considered one at a time . I know some use the actual tape for art and craft projects. Planet Ark also has suggestions of where they can be recycled. While we are sorting through the old materials we have made a point of keeping the old until we have viable new alternatives and those things are happening now we have made the decision to clear the old clutter. The amount of space now available is gratifying. My next question is who will want floppy disks?? Just keep moving.

Organise your work with Sprred

Sprred is a blogging client which is being advertised as a microblogging option like Tumblr. The way Sprred is set up it would suit really well the possibility of gathering online resources either to teach or to learn. As a teacher you could muster online teaching resources – photos, links, videos, notes, exercises. As a student you could use Sprred to either gather resources for an assignment or use it as a way of displaying the assignment, particularly if you had to give an oral report. You could also use it as it was intended, as a blog!
