  Netd@ys week
Updated 22 November 2001, 10.01
Child at computer
Jade, 11, and James, 10, report on a virtual conference that their school in Nottingham is taking part in.

As part of Netd@ys Week, lots of people are attending a virtual conference in the United Kingdom from the 20th - 22nd of November.

The week is trying to show the benefits of computers at school.

Virtual conference

It's virtual because it's taking place through a computer where the people 'attending' share their knowledge about technology.

Over 1000 people are logging on to be part of the conference.

They're asking questions by posting a message on the conference website, and the workshop presenters post replies as soon as they are able to.

Our school was chosen to host the conference because this year we won a Web Nose Award for our website.

Web Nose Award

We won the award in July, and the prize was a news computer and 500 to spend on software.

The judges said: "It's clear that the participants had great fun producing this website and learned a great deal at the same time."

'We can't keep quiet!'

We were proud of winning the award. But we were also proud of raising 700 doing events for Comic Relief, which the award is linked to.

There's a big poster in the entrance to the school that lets everybody know our school won. We can't keep quiet!
