Training update 3

I am slowly working through a SEND diploma course with New Skills Academy. As it is currently Anti Bullying week, I am undertaking a series of courses through the Anti Bullying Alliance

As of today 15/11/2022 I have completed :-

Course 1 : What is Bullying Course 2 : Bullying and the Law Course 3: The 10 key principles

There are about 10+ short courses in total, so will work through at least one per day, or at least aim to do this.

All this training is really proving beneficial, and is leading to me finding lots of really useful resources, so hopefully I can use these in schools.

Training update

In an effort to learn new skills and keep existing skills updated. Over the past week I have:

  • Finished studying for the Level 2 Teaching Assistant Diploma
  • Completed Prevent, this was in order to refresh prior learning
  • Completed Key stages of the National Curriculum course
  • Completed Mental Health First Aid course
  • Completed Mental Well-being in Children and Young people course

Mostly through the New Skills Academy. the prevent course is the official Home Office training.

I have also identified other learning, these course are now on my TO-DO list. I am now aiming to complete the SEND diploma. I really do need to be in a classroom to help with that, if nothing else context and support from employers and colleagues is essential.

Debian point release upgrade

Following the recent upgrade to the Debian Operating system, 11.4 to 11.5 I decided to make a video / screen cast of the upgrade process..

This was partly as I wanted to make something to contribute to the Debian Academy and it made sense to make this.

The video is quite long about ½. I am hoping the team can take the source file and edit so it is shorter.

Code Club 20/8/2022

The next Code Club will be on Saturday 20th August 2022 @ Paignton Library, we will carry on with what we are doing, mostly Hour of Code, block based programming, Scratch and the Free Code Camp responsive web design course.

We need MORE people in Torbay to come forward and run Code Clubs. Code Clubs could really benefit from working together too, so we can share expertise to benefit those who attend. We can then come together at STEM group meetings and share further.

Testing Big blue button July 2022

I am involved in helping to test big blue button. I just noticed something odd, if I use the custom layout from the “Layout Settings Modal” option, then I can also see propagate layout.

With the other options the propagate option doesn't appear.

Not too sure if this is a bug or it is meant to happen. I have made this Vokoscreen video to try and illustrate. It also makes it easier to share what the issue seems to be.

This is happening on a recent beta build, installed on the Faircam server.

Code Club 16/7/2022 Write up

It was fairly quiet again today, probably due to the weather. Nevertheless it was a good, productive session and attendees left having learnt a few more skills.

Lots of good coding with Hour of code activities too.

So very positive going forward.

  • The next Code Club will be on Saturday 6th August 2022 @ Paignton Library,
  • Next STEM Group meeting is Saturday 13th August 2022.
    • Part the plan for this STEM session is to look at the August Space Telescope Science Institute lecture about the James Webb Telescope lecture video.
