There are two of us that are national Digi Advisors to support educators in the use of Digistore and Software for Learning. We are always looking for ways to help teachers maximise the use of these resources. One way we do this is through offering free professional development sessions to groups or schools through 'Online Snacks'. These are workshops run virtually through online tools such as Adobe Connect or Skype. We also provide support resources on the two wikis that we maintain - one for each of the sites. We have just set up a new Digi Advisors group in the VLN. From there you can jump out to the sites and the wikis and get access to a Google form where you can request to book in a workshop. You can also see what's new on the sites.

We are really keen to know what YOU think would further support you to make use of the resources we promote and what experiences you have had with using the resources available to you. We'd love you to leave us a comment here.

    I have used DigiStore resources for the last 5 years and link my learning pathways to my class blog as part of my learning programmes. Students seem to particularly enjoy the learning objects.

    I have learned to use the site through 'playing' but found that others don't find it as straightforward. Recently I took a group of ICT lead tchrs through setting up and finding resources. Their feedback was interesting and seemed to echo conversations I've had with other teachers in my cluster. They found the resources practical and saw potential for use, but found the logins, student pins and pathways challenging. I think the online snacks and wiki are beneficial and will support lead teachers to teach others. Can I be so bold as to recommend a simplification of the login process? Perhaps once the students are within the site they don't have any pins or logins for each pathway.
