subject option choice .9a

complete rewrite of tables within the databases is having to happen. Now that I have changed schools and the new school wishes to try this out.

So far the changes are going to be around holding the student data.
SMS ID is having to grow
students are not provided there SMS ID here, instead we will use there network login, so have added an extra field
Form Class is somewhat different as well, here it is a four letter character
though this is going to have some impact on chasing students at the end, or is it, how did the rewrite for the previous school go on for area, more around the fact that it is based on being a senior student, and checking against a flagged item, when submitted.

Junior Technology

I have been meeting a number of teachers lately that have been looking at junior technology with the lower year levels, years 9-10. Gone are the days where they could just do ict skills, now we are looking at technology achievement objectivies.

These are outlined in the New Zealand Curriculum 2007. However there are a number of teacher that do not know about the curriculum resources that have been made available on

as well as Strategies for Engaging students

I think there may need to be some PD carried out to help assist the community
