  • Remember my overwhelmed lady at the start? There really is so much to choose it’s hard to decide. My advice - pick one thing, become really familiar with it, play, over use it, get comfortable, then add something else to it to take it up a level. Do something that suits you too - what suits me may not be what suits someone else. Shared plan - own approach.
  • Not sure if you’re coming or going? So much out there? Not sure what to do? Mixed messages. Limits/Brick Walls
  • There’s so much available and so much happening so fast. Huge expectation. Overwhelming for everyone. Constant change. Flit from one thing to the next.
  • 1998 Flat Stanley Project. 1999 hosted first travel buddy for Penguin Project. 2000 Kara went on first overseas trip. Kara’s last trip = 2006 unfortunately she’s gone AWOL. Communication = journal, email & webpage. With web 2.0 can be Blog, Skype, Webcam, videos, …
  • Made connection through websites. Have created & sent digital postcards English & Social Studies. Now you could still do these but add things like a Skype call & suddenly it’s upped the anti. Oral Language anyone?
  • Just because they’re exposed doesn’t mean they know how to use it for a specific purpose. Being exposed to books didn’t mean I instantly acquired research skills & the same applies to tech. Not every kid is even interested. Choice some choose traditional.
  • Teach one, they teach someone else and so on. I have 2 comps in my room & 1 ICT session of 45 mins p/w Discovery centre for blocks of time a couple of times per year. (and when I can steal a gap) COWs once a fortnight. (My choice as they’re in high demand). Do get alone time too. Read while type.
  • Here’s what we’ve tried.
  • Couldn’t bring these things into the classroom. I said you could draw a pic in paint. Kids came up with this.
  • Why I do it. What is Flickr What is creative commons. (Could use Picasa or other online photo storage.
  • Sometimes you’ve just gotta sit down & play. Kids & adults. e.g. of sandpit time in my class. Sandpit time for myself.
