Here is a site that I have written to support you when you join your teachers up to the VLN when you go back to your schools.

Our focus for the next half year is on developing a home school partnership. Use the VLN to share what you do in your school.

4. Everyone is going to be asked to lead a 3 minute discussion or talk about tools you use to link with parents and homes using ICT.

Please record what it is that you intend to share so there are no double ups.

Here is the Link to our last shared Google Doc in case you want to refer to it.

You can add to today’s Google Dochere http://goo.gl/HiBfr

Looking forward to seeing you there
