I’ve been to 3 really interesting pieces of CPD this summer holiday. GamesBritannia, NAACE 3mhothouse and Edinburgh Interactive 12.
They have all been really enjoyable, all different to each other but they all have underlying themes.
We need to let children be creative with the technologies available to them.
We need to not be worried about the children knowing more about the technologies than we do, they will teach each other and if they are engaged they will find a way to utilise the tools.
Children are learning and using technologies at incredible speed. The days of year by year ICT schemes are rapidly passing. There will be a progression in skills for using ICT, but these progressions will be flexible and will be experience related, not age related.
It will soon be time to start a new school year and I’m incredibly excited by the opportunities me and my class are going to discover and create with. We will be sharing what we create on or school web site and on our creative blog.
It would be great if you found time to leave a comment about what use create when our term begins.
