What do people “do” at TeachMeets?

Posted on by leoncych in Innovation | Comments Off

This is Ian Addison at the #BETT2015 TeachMeet talking about the uses of Skitch.

No-one saw how he was going to use it at the end of his presentation.

If you haven’t seen it before, watch to the end…

Digital Leaders

Posted on by leoncych in Peer to Peer | Comments Off

I have been following the paths of several schools and their use of Digital Leaders.

There is a Digital Leaders introductory chat tonight on Twitter run by Simon Johnson the hashtag is #EdShowChat – and the topic is “How Do We create a Student Digital Leadership Team?

Later on in the evening there is #DLchat between teachers involved in the use of Digital Leaders in their schools.

The use of Digital Leaders came up again twice this week at two TeachMeets TMBexley and #TMNorthants2015 and many teachers are now talking about their Digital Leaders as Colleagues.

Look at Stacey from Bridgewater School‘s TouchCast video about her working methods and her reference to Digital Leaders.

Whilst I was at BETT I shot some film of Lady Lumley’s and Arden’s Digital Leaders and their teachers interviewing them.

Liz Allton and Chris Sharples brought their Digital Leaders to be filmed.

Here are their films

No blog on Digital Leaders would be complete without reference to Mark Anderson who has been involved with and writing about Digital Leaders for many years – here is a link to all his posts on this subject on his blog.

He has also written a free book on the topic Digital Leaders: Transforming Learning with Students in the Lead available on iTunes https://itunes.apple.com/gb/book/digital-leaders-transforming/id851337846?mt=11

Learning with Mobile and Handheld Technologies

Posted on by leoncych in Handheld Learning | Comments Off

I don’t do much filming at BETT these days and when I do it is with people who are making the difference in small but effective ways, not the giant, global concerns who want to take your money.

On Stephen Heppell’s stand quietly tucked away were Merlin John, Maureen McTaggart and John Galloway promoting their collaboratively written book: Learning with Mobile and Handheld Technologies.

Listen to the interview, if it piques your interest you can buy it from here: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Learning-Mobile-Handheld-Technologies-Galloway/dp/0415842506

Quick Interview at BETT 2015 with @alicekeeler

Posted on by leoncych in Uncategorized | 1 Comment

I was on the Google stall talking with Jonathan Rochelle (@jrochelle) about exceptional teachers and their use of Google Forms when he happened to mention Alice Keeler was a BETT.

I first came across Alice a couple of weeks ago when I saw a number of really focused posts of hers around Google Apps and Forms on her site – I had seen her Mac Posts tips for searching for files on your Mac and offered up Easyfind from Devon Technologies as a free piece of very fast hard drive search software as a suggestion.

Within 15 seconds Alice had put up the resource on her website and also credited and informed me on Twitter that she had done that. Impressive – so I had to meet her.

Here’s quick interview I did with her using a GoPro and mini Gimbal steadycam. I was filming blind because my iPad Air couldn’t get a wireless connection. It seems to have come out OK. If you want to see some amazing Google Forms resources for use in Education and much, much more you must visit her site http://www.alicekeeler.com/teachertech/

This serendipity is what BETT is about at times – wonderful.

Here’s a quick couple of examples of the use of Workflow for iPhone and iPad – I quite like it – could be very powerful in skinning up your own mini-apps.
