We had a discussion as to why we were not on the NEN (National Education Network). We hope to be back on early next year when a work around can be facilitated. Next year costs likely to be $1 per student per month, up a little from this year.
A discussion followed about the notion of virtualisation of school servers and why this, ultimately, is an ideal way to go. The prediction was made that in ten years schools won't be running their own servers on their own property.
According to the
latest data from comScore
, Internet users over the age of 15 conducted over 29 million searches per minute in 2009. Overall, the global search market grew 46% in 2009. Unsurprisingly, Google continues to have a commanding lead in this market. Worldwide, Google accounted for 66% of all searches conducted in 2009 by Internet users over 15.
We talked about managed risk. Use on line resources but use them wisely.
We were astonished by the possibilities of Google Translate which translates any web page into another language in seconds. I gave it a try on the Nelson Mail translating English into French and later Thai. Give it a try.
This treasure was discussed at ULearn10.
