A bargain. And it’s not too shabby, even if I say so myself. https://twitter.com/itpressuk/status/1402576707048120322
I read this before covid stopped us using the library, but I found this changed a lot about how I think about reading. I am going to re-read over summer.
The five minutes needed watch this will not be wasted.
Episode 4 of the Banton Biggies Podcast is out now. Scripted & recorded by pupils in their home and edited together by the children in school all in less than a week.https://blogs.glowscotland.org.uk/nl/bbpod/2021/03/09/bbp-episode-4/
I’d avoided doing this earlier in lockdown ’cause I though it might be tricky. Turned out easier to organise than if I was in class. Even minimal supervision of the edit in school today.
KWL - Not to be confused with the KLF. https://ift.tt/3nKRLYx curriculum, KWL, learning
I just read this, bit late, but it really chimes with me. Thanks Robert.
This piece on edtech during Covid was written for a wide audience. Edtech can do good, but also anticipates big changes for education long term. Should engage teachers, parents, students, not just developers and investors etc, in this discussionhttps://online.ucpress.edu/currenthistory/article/120/822/15/114546/Education-Technology-Seizes-a-Pandemic-Opening
Lots to think about in the linked article: Education Technology Seizes a Pandemic Opening | Current History | University of California Press
An algorithmic worldview now permeates education systems and is encoded into the digital platforms that proliferated during school and college closures in the pandemic. COVID-19 has been treated as an experimental opportunity to scale up the use of algorithmic technologies, generate fresh forms of capital investment, and grow market share—while presenting a model vision for the future of the education sector itself.
Some digital fun in class today
