Purple Zeus website now live
I am proud to say that the scaffold and structure is finished for the Purple Zeus website. The comments below were originally posted as a news article at Yass High School.
Starting term three, computing students at Yass High will have a new online platform to support their learning.
The primary purpose of the website will be to supplement the teaching of all computing courses from years 9-12. Junior years will be added later. It will offer links to relevant resources, access to multimedia projects and online learning assistance.
The learning activities also incorporate heavy use of the free online tools Google Docs. Students will be able to save and download the activities and open them in a word processing application of their choice such as Microsoft Word or Notes. Additionally, if students have a Google account, they are able to save their own copy of the document online and edit it live through the website.
The platform is additionally designed to be fully compatible with any type of technology, supporting the BYOD initiative. The website, along with the worksheets and learning activities contained within it, can be accessed and utilised to their full potential from anything with an internet connection - screenshots from various devices are included below for your benefit.
If you have any questions, you can submit them through the website or contact Mr Biddle or Mr Saville in the computing faculty.
A Computing teacher with a passion for collaboration and open source teaching.
