2010 October - feature: do schools need ICT? - 26 views

  •  
    Ian Yorston explains why investment in ICT doesn't necessarily pay "If you had to spend a million pounds, you'd really hope to have something to show for it. Yet most schools have spent at least that on ICT and get nothing obvious in return - aside from a few hundred PCs running Windows XP and a handful of smart gadgets."

ICT and Social-media policy for school students | ICT Island - 35 views

  •  
    This is my latest blog post - it is about my draft ICT / Social media policy for secondary (high) schools. You can read and comment on it here. I would really like your feedback. Here is an excerpt! My primary source was Katie Lepi's Crowdsourced School Social Media Policy Now Available (here). Her work is based on over four-hundred crowd sourced edits! I have specifically included her in the Creative Commons license. I was also influenced by Doug Belshaw's Acceptable Use Policy - feedback required! (here).The comments on his posting are very interesting! I was inspired by Max Senge's A hippocratic Oath for Techies & Policymakers (here). Its simplicity is its strength!

BBC News - School ICT to be replaced by computer science programme - 3 views

  • "Instead of children bored out of their minds being taught how to use Word or Excel by bored teachers, we could have 11-year-olds able to write simple 2D computer animations," he said.
  • "Children are being forced to learn how to use applications, rather than to make them. They are becoming slaves to the user interface and are totally bored by it,"
  •  
    The current programme of information and communications technology (ICT) study in England's schools will be scrapped from September, the education secretary has announced. It will be replaced by an "open source" curriculum in computer science and programming designed with the help of universities and industry.

How will 100 Mbps broadband affect teaching and learning in Ireland's post-primary schools? | eLearning Island - 7 views

  •  
    Schools must regard 100Mbps Broadband not as an opportunity to do existing things faster, but to do new things altogether. These are things that some of our students are doing at home (and occasionally in school) - creating music, animations, sound, music, programming, curating, remixing - that should be given a voice and a place in our schools. this type of work will help support at least four of Hargreaves gateways: Learning to Learn, Assessment for Learning, New Technologies (ICT) and Student Voice.

A comparison of 2 technology integration frameworks | COETAIL Bangkok - 76 views

  • Critical thinking and problem solving are given a heavy emphasis throughout both frameworks,
    • Ryan Slavin
       
      Without this there is often no learning at all.
  • school has technology integration specialists available to teachers,
    • Ryan Slavin
       
      Often overcoming resistance from established teachers is of great importance here. 
    • Ryan Slavin
       
      The need for a eLearning Coordinator is indispensable here and staff need also to be open to working with this specialist.
  • individual class teachers
    • Ryan Slavin
       
      AS time is often the most valuable commodity in a school, it is easy for this to be left off.
    • Ryan Slavin
       
      Capacity needs to be built in teaching staff and staff need to embrace the change with continued release time for teachers authorised by administration.

      A timetabled "basics" class is beneficial in conjunction with an integrated approach to get all students on a base level.
  • Nurturing creativity is a recurring theme in both frameworks, as is the importance of collaborative learning,
    • Ryan Slavin
       
      essential in modern age and 21 C edu. Plus it allows students to take part in the Web's evolution.
