    Thanks Howard

     

    I will try and see if we can find proof of purchase. They were bought a few years ago so fingers crossed.

    i have two ipads that are locked with an icloud account that has been set up by previous users that no longer are around. We have tried all sorts of things but have no solution as it always comes back to requiring the icloud password.

    Has anyone got any suggestions?

    Welcome 2015. 

    i am always looking for new digital resources demonstrating various aspects of Digital Citizenship that I can share with and discuss with the year 7 & 8 students and teachers. In the past I have used You tube clips like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_o8auwnJtqE (demonstrating social media and exploitation), https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hK5OeGeudBM . I also find professor Garfield for the year 7 students is good, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oPFZObMOPuA, a bit young for some but the YAPPY acronym message is well remembered. Just a few. Also At a Distance from Netsafe is excellent and the DVD with Tem Morrison and piracy (can't remember the name of it)I think it was sent to schools in 2011...

    Anyway just wondering if anyone has some more good digital resources that encourage thinking and conversation with Intermediate Students.

    We are suspending the accounts over the long holiday break only, they have not been suspended through term breaks and because next year we have some major classroom changes it was decided that it would be good to do this. We are just trying this out and will reflect on it next year.

    Thanks Mark

     

    I had just got that info from my technician. Anyway we are going to suspend them and have them available for a certain length of time afterwards.

    We are going through a similar process for the first time. We have suggested to our year 8's to use Google Takeout to transfer anything from their school drive / blogger... to another google account. A lot of our students have other google accounts and these have been set up with parents permission.

    We have really tried to encourage our students that the school gmail account... is their "professional account" used for school purposes, not to set up facebook/  accounts... This has helped with the differentiation between school and personal. We have given them plenty of notice that this is happening, and have passed on the responsibility to them.

    All year 8 accounts will be suspended at end of year. We are currently trying to work out what to do with our Year 7 accounts as we want them suspended over the holiday period, but reopened after the break for 2015 without losing any data, blogs... We have come up with changing their password as that can be done in bulk rather than individually. If we suspended them apparently Google might delete them forever after 30 days.

    I would be interested to know what other Intermediates do.

    Getting student support in the mornings and afternoon with sorting out the ipads/ chromebooks for collection is a must have. They love the responsibility and they are reliable (usually) It is actually quite a time consuming process.

    Hi Steve

    Jsut had a quick look at this Pixiclip. Looks good, but can you embed into a blog?
