The next meeting is to be held on Thursday 16th June 2pm – 4pm at Lancaster School for Boys, Knighton Lane East, Leicester LE2 6FU.
The Agenda is as follows:
1. Presentation on Salamander Active Directory and Salamander SharePoint (Richard Willis, Managing Director of Salamander Soft)
Salamander Soft offers Office 365 /SIMS integration at an affordable price. The pick of the bunch from BETT, their software offers some really useful functionality for those looking to automate user provisioning or to develop a VLE within Office 365. I’m very pleased that they agreed to come along and show us what they can offer – they are a small company and don’t do this sort of thing very often! I have sent an invite to this part of the meeting to the Network Managers group, as I am aware of a lot of interest from them. Don’t be surprised if they want to come along too!
2.Yammer Digilit Network Group (Josie Franklin, Moat Community College)
Introducing Yammer, and the new Digilit Network group, followed by a brief discussion on effective ways we can use Yammer to communicate.
3. Digilit.net blog (Tony Tompkins, The City of Leicester College)
A practical session on how to submit a post to the http://digilit.net blog. Bring along a brief description of your Digilit project as we will be posting these up during the session. Every project should have a blog post, and leads are encouraged to post regular updates on progress on their projects. (You can later use your posts to pull together your final report! Win!)
4. Digilit Survey (Mahala Active-Nemaura, Lancaster Boys School)
Mahala will be sharing an online version of the Digilit Survey for those who wish to continue using this tool to measure Digital Literacy at your schools.
This is a core meeting, and attendance is expected from all Digilit Network Leads. If your Lead cannot personally attend, please ensure that your school sends a representative in their place.
