  • 1. it’s more than just the files … Finding what you want There are two ways of finding the resources that you may be looking for: a search and using the tag cloud. The search will look for any files, resources, videos and hotpotatoes on the site with the search term in the title or the description. Each area has its own search that enables you to just search one type of resource. Or you can use the full site search to search everything that we have to download. The other way of searching for files on the site is to use the ‘tag cloud’. A tag is a descriptive word or term that links to resources. We have tagged many of the resources on the site and you can search by tags (like OCR, obedience, fear). By clicking on the links you will see all files that are related or linked by that term. A great way to find gems that you didn’t realise were there.
  • 2. If you’re anything like us and just have too much time to kill then a great way of seeing what the site has to offer is to use the ‘stumble’ button on the top of the site. This will take you to a random resources over-and-over-and-over again. Great fun. Bookmarking Some of the resources on the site can’t be downloaded directly through PsychExchange or importantly you might want to know where that file is again in the future. Bookmarking of resources allows you to keep a track of all the files, videos, hotpotatoes and ideas on the site that you might want to come back to. In other words, when you find a resource that you might want to keep coming back to, look for the ‘Bookmark’ button on the page (it looks like this: ). This will add the resource to the ‘My Bookmarks’ section of the site that you can see in your sidebar. By clicking on that link you will be able to get back to all those excellent resources that you wanted to keep for ever-and-ever. It’s especially useful for video clips that you might want to show in class (as long as your LEA doesn’t block YouTube – but that’s a different argument for another day!) User Profiles All users have a user profile on the site which is somewhere that you can personalise. Upload a picture of yourself (or someone / thing else) and let the world know about you. If you click on the ‘My Profile’ link at the top of the page that will take you through to what the world will see. From the My Profile section you can click the Edit Profile link that is on the right hand side and it will allow you to add ‘stuff’ to your profile. You can always go back later on and change, delete or modify anything you write so it won’t haunt you forever. If you click on any username on the site it will take you through to that users profile page
  • 3. where you can see what they’ve been up to on the site. More than this you are able to click on the ‘view timeline’ link that will show you what the user has been up to on the site recently, see all the users files and say ‘hi’ on their wall. Following and Timelines As mentioned above you are now able to see the ‘timeline’ of every user and the entire site as a whole that might be interesting (or not). To see the full sites timeline click the ‘Public Timeline’ link in the sidebar of the site – this will show you everything that’s going on around the site and might just give you the heads-up on any new or exciting resources. Alternatively, you can click the ‘view timeline’ link on a users profile (see image above) to see what that user has been up to recently. Blogging is great… One of the newest additions to the site is the ability for every user to have their own blog within PsychExchange where you can post links, resources, ideas or just rants for your students or other teachers on PsychExchange. If you go to www.psychexchange.co.uk/blogs/new/ you can get your own blog chose its name, and start writing on a really simple-to-use blog. When you have content up there you
  • 4. can easily share your writing by sending people to www.psychexchange.co.uk/blogs/your- blog-name/. You can edit, keep as draft and comment on all blog posts so it could provide to be a really useful tool for teachers. It’s your glossary At the moment we have almost 450 items in the glossary but we want it to be an evolving community driven area. Any user can edit or amend all glossary items on the site – suggesting extra information or links or just changing something that doesn’t seem right. If you think you can add something to an item just click the edit link at the bottom of any glossary item and you will be able to suggest your alteration. The owner of the glossary item will then receive an email letting them know of your addition and will be able to approve it. Finally, we would like to thank all those members of the PsychExchange community. It is because of all the magnanimous teachers throughout the UK (and further afield) who are willing to share, support and be apart of the community, that we have achieved all we have to date. Sharing is fun. Sharing is happening. Be a part of it. www.p sy c h e x c h a
