Primary Pad goes live and very beta
Due to a massive demand and due to Etherpad going open source we quickly put together a collaborative text editor for schools to use called Primary Pad.
Across the key Primary Technology sites we were pleased to reach 50,000 hits in the last 30 days.
With one more site in the works (School Closures) we hope to have reached 100,000 hits by this time next year. We aim to do this by spending time speaking to school teachers and pupils with an aim to create services they truly need.
We still don’t advertise on the sites and run them all at a loss so if you feel you would like to contribute towards any of them then please get in touch!
We have had a little bit of contraversy over Primary Games Arena lately and we feel that educators need to remember their principle focus should be education and not quantity of hits or revenue generated by a website.
The sites monitored for hits were:
It’s now easier for pupils to find learning materials.
It’s now easier for teachers to find teaching resources.
It’s now safer than ever to use as undesirable adds are filtered.
Of course its still free and always up and accessable from home aswell as school.
We plan to upgrade the Resource section over the Easter holiday. We are looking for people to help in this process, to help out please email firstname.lastname@example.org
, or comment on this blog with some suggested websites that are useful for teachers/pupils or administrators.
