They say that every cloud has a silver lining and the creation of this brilliant FACEBOOK group is one of those positive highlights. This website is testament to what can be achieved by effective collaboration and learning from each other. We have talked about Sharing good practice for years and many of us have practiced this - This Facebook site is full of amazing ideas from local teachers just like us. Join up as soon as you can- Over 4,000 Northern Ireland teachers joined in one week!
This is perhaps one of the most asked questions at the beginning of the year regarding iDoceo and is easy to forget. Once you have your timetable assembled and are sure that it won't change much, you will want to copy it to replicate it through the academic year. This video talks you through the steps to do this.
This short video shows you how to construct your timetable for Schedule and planner. You do this at the start of the year / At set up. Once complete you shouldn't have to revisit this - unless the timetable changes!
This short video shows you how to add your classes manually using iDoceo.
It shows you how to add the class ; the details ; the colour and how to place the class in the schedule. It also explains how to delete the classes if not needed or misplaced.
This short video aims to show you how you can transfer / copy one of your existing classes from a previous year. This prevents you having to needlessly create a new class from scratch. You have the options of copying the names or you can copy some of the columns and data too.
It also shows you how to hide or delete previous classes.
This is one of the most commonly asked questions at this time of year. Now that you all have your class lists this is a run through of how to send them through to iDoceo from SIMS. There are new ways to save the files on to Google Drive but I will cover that later. There are a few steps in this but I guarantee once you do one class it will be easy!
This is quite a commonly asked question. You may have your new timetable all put in and nicely colour coded BUT it doesn't replicate into the rest of the year! Don't worry there are just a few simple steps to sort this out.
If you have classes in your iDoceo which you are not teaching this year but you want to save details and marks - simply follow these simple steps to 'hide' them. This will keep them on your system but neatly tucked away so as not to interfere with your current years groups
You may have a class that you have carried on from last year. Instead of having to put the class details in laboriously again .. simply follow these steps to copy.
iDoceo has now become indispensable to many of us. We have lots of our pupils marks and progress recorded on it. Many of us have also used it to record examples of good or indeed poor homework for parental interviews. The thought of all this going missing therefore would fill many of us with dread. As with everything, the solution is simply to back up your iDoceo. This is a straightforward process you will be glad to know.
Read on to find out how to Backup - Simply. Allowing you peace of mind for the future
Here at TeacherTec we love to share experiences from staff who are using Technology in their classrooms. This week we caught up with Alex Bell to see how she has been using iDoceo instead of a paper lesson planner, what issues she's encountered so far and what advice she would give to someone starting for the first time!
Many thanks to Alex for catching up with us this week!
Welcome to TeacherTec,
We are aiming to create the best collection of resources for using technology in your classroom!
