Every user has their own personal section, where they can create pages and a blog and choose whether to make pages public or private.
Personal sections need to be enabled by the site administrator.
You can access your own personal section from the drop-down menu beneath your name.
Personal sections include a personal blog. This can be written straight from your dashboard.
You can access someone else's personal section (permissions-permitting) from the links on their profile page.
Why use a personal section?
- experiment with building different Firefly pages.
- write and store pages not directly relevant to students.
- keep notes on day to day activities for personal reference.
- keep a personal blog, like a diary, to make continuous self-assessment simple.
- write and store portfolio work, keeping it all in one easy-to-access place. Teachers can comment on this, if necessary.
- document information about Firefly use as it evolves.
- write and store information only relevant to administrators.
Personal blogs guided by teachers are a great way to get even the youngest students creating and is a powerful showcase for parents.
You can choose to make a personal section public. Administrators decide what 'public' means, for example form tutors could see their tutees' sections, teachers can always see their students' pages.
