Broadcasting from an iPad

I am about to launch a “niche” education tech YouTube/ LiveStream Channel in the autumn. I have spent a considerable sum on very expensive cameras and audio equipment. The channel will use new.livestream.com and Wirecast technologies to broadcast out live programming  and recorded content to interested teachers for CPD.

I am still looking for sponsors for the programme as it will be a quality product that covers all the exciting things happening in computing and ICT in the UK and…

Excerpt: A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to interview Kirsten Campbell-Howes about her new venture, EduGamesHub, launched at Mind Candy HQ.  Kirsten, along with Martha Henson, has slowly built up a gamers community for education, #LegUP that has been phenomenally successful; so successful that the need for a hub was inevitable. This is one of the most exciting initiatives I have seen in the educational space for quite some time. Campbell-Howes is one of the sharpest people, in terms of vision, in this area I know. Being a former teacher she is extremely focused and unforgiving about certain types of “educational game”…

Excerpt: CREATIVE COMPUTING?

The purpose…

I am doing the Creative Computing course using Scratch over at MIT. The Creative Computing Online Workshop is a six-week online workshop for educators who want to learn more about using Scratch and supporting computational thinking in the classroom and other learning environments. I like the format because it is not a course – it is structured but there is a lot of leeway in how you approach the activities and it is emergent in how it is being built as with most innovation in this area of online learning. I will be volunteering to teach Scratch…
