Two of our schools (so far) will be making use of this page for their RTC reflection and uploading evidence. I'll add further feedback on how it goes. If anyone can foresee any issues please add feedback to this page.

The page is based on the one that has been around for a while. The changes have been

  • the image is in a text box and resides on the WeLCom site for two reasons. One I kept loosing access right to the image?? Second it made the copying of the page easier.
  • each criteria is linked to it's own folder and appears below each reflection.

All teachers have had this page added to their own pages and the folders setup (process takes about 2 minutes per teacher for admin to do). We preferred to go this route as we didn't feel that teachers (not using Mahara in their teaching) needed the hassle of learning the package.

All teachers have to be shown is

1. For this page - how to edit a text box.

2. How to upload a file.

  • From Dashboard click Files
  • Go to relevant (premade) folder - rtc1, rtc2, ..., rtc12
  • Tick copyright box, browse for file and double click.

And that's it - the file (evidence) will automatically be displayed in the correct slot on the page.

If you want to see how the admin adds a page to another teachers page and sorts out all the folder then watch this screencast.

The WeLCom course page that has the resources linked to from this page will remain with open access. (One problem is that the URL will change when we upgrade to Moodle 2 at the end of the year.)

Teacher sessions went extremely well with positive feedback regarding the ease of use.

Concerns were about web security and about having to convert everything into electronic versions.

Reassurance was given that the security was sufficient for what was being uploaded/entered and teachers were advised not too add any details that they felt would put them at risk. (personal detail, emotional rants ...)

Compromise was made with the electronic evidence. Teachers could refer to evidence in that they had "on a shelf in the workroom".
