Year 6 Expedition


Tomorrow I will be heading off to Ross-on-Wye with all of Year 6 for a few days of camping, canoeing, climbing and trekking. I will be using the school’s Twitter account (@wh_school) to send updates. There is also a Year 7 and Year 5 expedition at the same time and so to filter the tweets we will be using the following hashtags #whsy7, #whsy6 and #whsy5. I have used the site http://www.tweetwally.com to display all the tweets from the school’s Twitter account that include each of the hashtags.

On each trip there is one member of staff who will be tweeting. Tweetwally displays photos that get tweeted as well.

For the year 6 trip I have also set up and AudioBoo account so that we can upload and then tweet interviews with the children.

I have now just installed an App on my HTC Desire called Glympse which allows me to tweet my current location which is sent as a link to a map – http://glympse.com/Y3Y-Z0Y- I thought this would be good for parents to see where abouts on the River we are.
