Hi all. I'm currently doing a research project looking at the ways ICT and VLE/MLEs can enhance learning. As such, I was wondering if anyone would like to comment on their successes and/or failures with using a system such as Fronter to provide your class with an online classroom that they can access at home. (I am focussing on Fronter because that's the system in place in my setting.) Do you think they are a good idea for use in the early years (in particular, Reception)? How do you use your online classroom if you have one? How do you promote it to the parents/children? How often do you update it? How easy do you find it to use? Do you encourage its use by making it part of homework? What do you think are the advantages and disadvantages of such systems? How do you think they can be used to enhance learning, or do you think they don't? Do you have any other thoughts on their use and existence, etc? Finally, if you do take the time to share some thoughts/comments on this topic, I'd like to thank you for your time. Also, please note that by adding a reply, you will be seen as having given your consent for me to quote, and refer to, your comments posted in this thread, which will be seen by my Unit tutors and Moderators. Thank you. Jennifer.
