Happy New Year.
Thanks for these suggestions and yes, Chad, 2010 is going to be another exciting time. Actually, I think that unless I can get enthused about what I'm doing I have no right to expect it of students. I like to have constant challenges and Moodle certainly provides those!
I like the iTalc idea but these netbooks are locked: we can't even add a simple programme.
I'm going to trial a system of using Moodle logs with self-assessment and checking their work. We are going with One Note prepared by teachers with students adding their own comments. These can be uploaded into assignments or journals and we can start the discussion from there. I'll keep notes on where we are going and hopefully, by year's end, I'll have something to share.
Thanks for all your input,
