Hi! My name is Helen Bound and I am Moodle Scholar for Perins/> School/>: A Community Sports/> College/> in Hampshire/>, England/>/>. My role at the school is to project manage and implement the schools VLE using Moodle. Ive been in the job for 4 months now and have worked very closely with a group of Gifted and Talented IT Students who we have named Moodle Gurus. Along with Moodle Experts in each Department we have built up our site to such an extent that we officially launched Moodle to the rest of the school and local community last week. We devised competitions accessed via Moodle, including Slogans and Acronyms; the winners being ..for oodles of fun, Moodles the one and More of our daily learning experience. All Tutor groups attended a special Moodle Assembly devised by our Year 10 Gurus, which was filmed and included a Moooooodle Pantomime Cow! All the video clips and images are on our site. If you wish to view these e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The enthusiasm and creativity from these students is incredibly infectious, and we managed to get the most hard-hearted staff taking part in competitions, including Moodle Mention, tallying up the department that mentioned Moodle the most over a period of 3 days!! The things these people will do for a box of Quality Street and a certificate!
Anyway, their acceptance of all things Moodle has certainly made my job easier and I look forward to seeing the perins@moodle site evolve over the next few months.
