Paperless worksheets, a paradox or an opportunity? (by Anthony Hill)


Presentation summary: …

Presentation summary:
Paperless Schools are being promoted as a new eLearning concept but where does the humble, trusty and much relied upon paper worksheet fit in that scenario? We will look at transforming the worksheet into a dynamic interactive document. Then we will shed the document altogether to investigate cross platform possibilities for web based devices which act as our new worksheet workhorse. Our new worksheets should be paperless, interactive, multimedia capable and assessable.

Presenter bio
Anthony presents himself as an educator seeking eclectic solutions for teaching and learning. He also describes himself as a classroom teacher and ICT lecturer who is "totally bent towards technology - a sad case of addiction".
