This will only mean anything to a few Scottish teachers and educators. The Scottish Schools Digital Network will use a Sharepoint-based portal to accommodate 850,000 teachers and students. Will the technology work? Will it do anything for the pedagogy?

  1. Hi Bob,
    I am afraid Sharepoint-based portal doesn’t mean much to me, from a brief google it keeps pointing to microsoft, will this affect the platform we use in and out of school?
    I would worry about being tied to MS if it meant a lack of all the nice web 2.0 open source stuff and of course macs?

    Sorry about not getting back to you sooner, but have been on holiday in Northern Spain. MS is indeed the maker of Sharepoint. It is a portal, ie you can think of it as an alternative desktop. So far we do not know how easy it will be for end users (the SSDN nmae for pupils and teachers) to customise what they see on the screen, but I can see no reason why you should not be able to use all the goodies of Web 2.
