About John Johnston

I am a primary school teacher turned ICT Staff Development officer (I support teachers and schools with ICT).
Ive been interested in using ict for learning and online learning for a while.

I am @johnjohnston on twitter where it says:

I am troutcolor on Flickr and John Johnston on YouTube.

My ‘real’ blog is John’s World Wide Wall Display where I’ve been blogging about ict in learning and teaching and the like for a while.

Along with David Noble I run EDUtalk an open to any contributions podcast, that now includes a ds106 inspired, internet radio station.

I co-founded ScotEdublogs, an aggregator of Scottish educational blogs.


THis blog is for my play with DS106, digital storytelling 106:

is an open, online course that happens at various times throughout the year at the University of Mary Washington, but you can join in whenever you like and leave whenever you need. This course is free to anyone who wants to take it, and the only requirements are a real computer, a hardy internet connection, preferably a domain of your own and some commodity web hosting, and all the creativity you can muster.

At time of writing, 01-09-2013 I’ve dropped in and out of a few ds106 courses and am currently taking part in the Fall 2013 Headless one, a course without a leader.
