Photostory Workshop

As part of our ongoing support for T&D teachers the Technology team at Clounagh are pleased to announce another ICT workshop. On the 11th November we will be hosting an afternoon session on using photostory in Technology and Design. The session will begin at 1.30 and finish at 3.30, with tea provided beforehand. Photostory is a digital way to show and tell your story using digital images. Just think about the potential of pupils evaluating their product digitally, explaining the functionality of their favourite gadget or describing a manufacturing process using digital images, narration or even music. The good news is photostory is free and can be downloaded from the microsoft website. To find out more about photostory and what it can do click here

A number of people have been enquiring for information on the latest spec changes within Edexcel A-Level . There is some information on the edexcel website which is helpful. However there seems to be a mood of teacher to teacher enquiry out there. In order to facilitate this I have setup a discussion forum on, this is to allow teachers of this spec to discuss and share ideas. If you are interested in participating in this discussion please contact

YACAPACA - beginner clinic

Following on from day AOL2 in term 2 of the last academic year (07-08), we have noted some degree of success with YACAPACA in a number of schools. Let me refresh. YACAPACA is an online tool that allows you to create online quizzes, tests, surveys and more. Assessments can be shared, marked automatically and analysed by teachers and pupils to improve performance and learning. A few schools have already dipped their toe into the water and the feedback has been quite resounding to say the least. If you are interested in finding out more about YACAPACA and how it can enhance the learning in your T&D department then you might be interested in attending the starter session on Monday the 20th October, from 1.30 -3.30. Places are limited to 15 and will be allocated on a first come first serve basis. To reserve a place please contact
