Some teaching and learning tools to assist the revolution!

Over the last few weeks, I have been creating a series of films for Scottish Book Trust around emerging technologies for teaching and learning. Although unable to attend, or contribute to, the recent #edupic11 discussions, I hope the films below will add something to the debate: how to engage teachers in the creative uses of technologies in their every day teaching practice. The films are designed to give confidence, the sine qua non of any education revolution. The deeper the engagement, the more profound the change. I hope the Pedagoo community will appreciate having these films together in one place here. They can also be found on Vimeo and on YouTube.

    Very proud to have been able to support the development of these resources.

    During discussions around #TMLothians11 Fearghal Kelly mentioned how important it was that Pedagoo and similar practice-driven communities reach out to professionals who don’t know where to start with ICT and collaborative technologies. I think these films represent an excellent jumping off point for people interested in experimenting and playing with web tools. They’re also quite timely given recent announcements regarding #EduScotICT and Glow.

    Thanks for that comment, Colm. And yes, it’s been great to get these going through Scottish Book Trust. They will only have an impact if shared. I hope that anyone with a personal or professional interest CPD, will promote them to the wider teaching community. Self-directed CPD is the way forward!

      Thank you so much Julie, that’s great. I’d love if you could promote the films to your colleagues, and where possible to your cluster primaries, and any associated Secondary Schools. Trying to get the widest possible visibility as I think many teachers will love using these creative technologies … 🙂
