  • Slide rule was the only technological aid I had a school Calculators were resisted as it was thought it would make maths too easy and effect results The coolest technology of the time
  • This is the world of our children Always on, always there, Internet Answers can be found in seconds, work can be shared Boundaryless, virtual, interactive, collaborative Rapidly expanding and ever changing
  • Everything that technology is to most of us, is the complete opposite to our students
  • Social networking for kids If we do not keep them engaged in school, they will drift away from it and they are We need to ensure that we package learning in engaging, relevant and authentic ways to them Technology has to be at the centre of the way that we deliver the content we have to
  • X readers F readers Soak up information Images before text
  • Elearning needs to develop these skills New literacies for the C21 to complement and extend the existing literacies Digital Citizenship has to be a big focus for the school in collaboration with the wider parent community
  • It is essential that we prepare our students for the new workplace with the appropriate skills to thrive and succeed
  • Learning in school should be mobile Collaborative between students Between classes Between schools Between countries BYOD an initiative Some excellent videos to share more
