[school-discuss] Using Manhattan Server
I am not sure if this is the right forum to ask these questions, so please
bear with me.
I am the IT Co-ordinator for a primary school in Mareeba Australia (600+
student ). 2 years ago I introduced a K12LTSP server into the library to
make use of 20 old donated computers I got my hands on. Literally overnight
we had a Internet Lab. Whilst we mainly use those machines for internet,
over the past year we have I have added various applications from the
Schoolforge list, as well as setup our website etc.
At the end last year I found out about the Manhattan Server (virtual
classroom program). It is now up and running, and our teachers are very
excited about its potential. My two questions are:
1. If anyone is using the Manhattan Server, how best have you utilised it?
ie. Had an off-site quest lecturer take a subject
2. Is there anyone out there who would be interested in doing a combined
virtual class with some of our students. My principal would like me to do a
trial with one of our older classes before we introduce it to the whole
school. My first thought are to do a culture unit (the differences between
our society and yours) even if it was mainly an email/discussion group, but
I am open to suggestions.
Thanks for your time (and again sorry if this is not the right forum).
