How old are you? That's the sort of comment I'd expect from a 10 yr old. If you can't be civil, at least try to use logic. hang on - wasn't java and flash around then? Couldn't they have used these tools that were constantly being updated and backwards compatible instead of relying on Microsoft? Ok, again I'll try to put it in easy language for you. Who made the decision to solve the problem of multiple file uploads on a multiplatform (covered in training) IT system by using a tool created by Microsoft - whose tools only work on PC's? Was it Glow, or was it someone else - perhaps it was XP or school technicians or perhaps the users who have not been properly trained? And this illustrates my point perfectly - if Glow had used different software at the design stage, perhaps they would be able to keep up. Look at the web2.0 applications today - constantly being updated and improved yet they are just as old, if not older than Glow. Bebo was launched the same year as Glow was commissioned. Macbooks are very common. I know of quite a few pupils and staff who use them. Video conferencing software - I think it was MSN or equivalent. Haven't seen much of this happening yet - there are not enough people using Glow to make it good use of time. Whats the point in joining a national group which has 2 main contributing members when I can get a committee together in the school with 10 contributers? Long way to go. I've borrowed lots of resources from various websites over the years. Forget Borders to Orkney. How about Edinburgh to California? You know that thing that Glow sits in? The internet? Contains way more teachers than Glow. There are forums and sharing communities all over the internet if you are prepared to look. Not only are they easy to access, they actually contain lots of shared resources. I've found more resources this month through Google than I've found in all my time on Glow. Next! Read above Keep the faith!
