Advancing Education Autumn 2011

image
In this edition of Advancing Education Fiona Aubrey-Smith considers the evolution of Technology for Learning, taking us into the realms of Web 3.0. Amrit Pal Kaur of the University of Adelaide presents an exploratory study of trainee science teachers attitudes to use of certain ICT tools while Pete Bradshaw and Sarah Younie explore trainee teachers engagement in a cross-curricular news project. There are important lessons in both papers.

We also have papers on the integration of technology into the learning experience. Andrew Lickley reports on a YHGfL project using QR codes and PSPs with primary children at the Dales Countryside Museum while Dr Arjette Karemaker explores the use of Clicker to support early learning and literacy. Also, Steve Higgins reflects on how to integrate multi-touch technology in classrooms at Durham University.

There is still much debate on ICT which may filter through to policy makers. Bob Harrison offers his views on the changing landscape of ICT in schools and reports on a Westminster Education Forum debate and a TDA Music technology event.

There is light at the end of the tunnel, a theme taken up by Richard Smith, who offers some useful pointers for the many of us taking our first faltering steps in the new world of freelance school improvement. And finally, in our sponsoring partners section there are articles on MOBI, TextHelp and Espresso Primary.

Naace 3rd Millennium Hothouse - summary

image
The last few weeks have seen such a buzz and hum building up to the first ever Third Millennium Hothouse, which took place in Crewe on the last two days in July. Crewe is one of those places that many pass through on a train, or even change at the station, but relatively few disembark and venture beyond the station doors, so there were lots of participants that had never been to this part of the country before. But the visit was decidedly worthwhile, with a range of workshops, masterclasses and keynotes aimed at an audience of 50 teachers who had given up 2 days of their summer holidays to find out more about the Naace ICT Curriculum Framework and the principles behind Third Millennium teaching and learning. Despite rain and dodgy wifi, none of which put a dampener on proceedings, the event was felt to be a great success by all who came along.
