Excerpt: What you see here, above, is a “Virtual” Conference environment I built in 2009 on the  Second Life platform. It was used regularly and it performed pretty well. The idea was to supply conference facilities for teachers who would come in as Avatars – i.e. people in Virtual personas. The screens could show powerpoints – the giant TVs could show video on-demand.  Wherever you sat in the environment you had a perfect view of the screen or avatar that was talking at any one point. Your avatar could sit in one of those pods and share documents and files with anyone in the “virtual”…

Excerpt: 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…

Excerpt: It works I rarely post about computer kit these days unless I come across something exceptional. Equipment for teachers has to serve a need that can’t be met elsewhere and it has to be quick, easy, functional and work flawlessly each time. This piece of equipment was developed with a specific need in mind – places where networks don’t exist and/or are locked down. Advantages When I read about the Library Box 2.0 Kickstarter campaign last year I could immediately see the advantages for schools. 1) NOT linked to the internet unless you want to. 2) A wireless router/ file server that can be…

Excerpt:

Summer Turner on the TeachMeet Bus March 2014

“This web of time – the strands of which approach one another, bifurcate, intersect or ignore each other through the centuries – embrace every possibility.”  (The Garden of Forking Paths)   Most people think me quite dysfuntional at TeachMeets. I rarely have time to socialise because I am trying to get the filming right; often I’m doing something very few people have attempted to do before with film in this way – certainly not as a one men band filming on a bus. I am totally focused on trying to get the media…
