  • Neil Winton. I thought I’d start by taking 4 slides to tell you my story...[CLICK]
  • 1963 - Learning to walk...[CLICK]
  • 1964 - running... [CLICK]
  • 1990 - I learned how to teach… [CLICK]
  • And as of 2007, I’d finally begun to learn how to learn.... So, what am I going to talk about today?[CLICK]
  • [CLICK] for NAME to appear! Isocrates — not to be confused with Socrates — complained about how poor the youth of his day were... somethings never change... [CLICK]
  • The yoof of today know nuffink!
  • Andrea Lunsford isn't so sure. Lunsford is a professor of writing and rhetoric at Stanford University, where she has organized a mammoth project called the Stanford Study of Writing to scrutinize college students' prose. From 2001 to 2006, she collected 14,672 student writing samples—everything from in-class assignments, formal essays, and journal entries to emails, blog posts, and chat sessions. Her conclusions are stirring.
  • So... What has lead us to this stage? [CLICK]
  • 1700 Generations ago, start of language. 300 Generations ago — Writing 35 Generations ago — Printing... but what does this look like?
  • 1700 Generations ago, start of language. 300 Generations ago — Writing 35 Generations ago — Printing... but what does this look like?
  • We live in EXPONENTIAL times… the development of the internet and technology has proceeded at a much faster pace than we can possibly hope to keep up with... but our pupils do. [CLICK]
  • A quick illustration of the difference between Web1.0 and Web2.0... [CLICK]
  • In Web1.0, the majority of a teacher’s information comes from ONE WAY sources... [CLICK]
  • Web2.0 on the other hand... [CLICK]
  • NB: We’re getting better with our consultation on Curriculum for Excellence...
  • So... AT LAST... I hear you cry! WIKIS! [CLICK]
  • What a wiki is... [CLICK]
  • Wikipedia is as good and as accurate as YOU make it. Colleague on course: “It’s inaccurate!” — So FIX IT! Incidentally, in an independent study carried out by Wired, they found comparable inaccuracies in Encyclopedia Britannica... but of course, WE can’t edit Britannica...
  • Cube Rotation to the footnotes! [CLICK]
  • CAVES OF MULL — A text based adventure from Eng. Matters that we turned into a ‘Choose your own adventure’ game...
  • As a support site for A Midsummer Night’s Dream... [ONLINE!]
  • As a support site fro A Midsummer Night’s Dream... [ONLINE!]
  • As a support site for A Midsummer Night’s Dream... [ONLINE!]
  • A word of warning... there are many who would thwart your use of Web2.0 tools to enhance what and how you are teaching... and how your pupils are learning...
  • Isn’t this what pupils do when they use a proxy to bypass a school filter?
  • The Web2.0 / Social networking phenomenon is growing exponentially as well...
  • I won’t insult you by using the trite: “...because the ‘kids’ are using them...”
  • Finally, a quick prayer to the Gods of Wiki!
  • The all important © Notice!

    8. 8. writing I became alarmed at the inability of my students to write a clear English sentence… almost invariably, the syntax (and everything else) fell apart… Stanley Fish: Davidson-Kahn Distinguished University Professor, Florida International University |ˈrīti ng | |ˈraɪdɪŋ| |ˈrʌɪtɪŋ|
    9. 9. writing I think we’re in the midst of a literacy revolution the likes of which we haven’t seen since Greek civilization… … young people today write far more than any generation before them. Andrea Lundsford : Stanford Study of Writing, 2008 |ˈrīti ng | |ˈraɪdɪŋ| |ˈrʌɪtɪŋ|
