When Purple Zeus first went live, I was please with the immediate response and support from ICT and computing educators through my own personal learning network, and the network of my employer. Above all else, effective feedback was provided that improved some of my own teaching and lesson plans instantly.
After only a few days active, the website was also featured in the Sydney Regional ICT Newsletter for the DEC. The feature not only promoted the website and brought more visitors from other statewide ICT coordinators, but it helped me build yet another connection to educators. Notably, a connection to the ICT coordinator or coordinators. As a (still relatively) new teachers, this admittedly made me quite proud. It served as yet another reminder of the importance in learning of effective feedback to students.
I have provided a copy of the newsletter below, and you can visit the website here. On top of the latest news around the DEC, it also contains multiple access to resources and other links to like minded teachers.
