ETR Weekly #5 – Interactive Whiteboards, Isle of Wight Conference, Organising ICT CPD

27 October 2008

This week, several of our regular participants were still travelling home from the  2008 Isle of Wight Conference when we recorded the show.  Dai Barnes did a great job standing in for regular host Doug Belshaw.  We spoke briefly about interactive whiteboards before Joe Dale, organiser of the Isle of Wight Conference, joined us to reflect on this year’s event.  The IoW Conference FlashMeeting mentioned by Joe was recorded and can be viewed here .

Dan Needlestone led a discussion on CPD issues and the issues surrounding ICT training for teachers.

22 October 2008

We were back to full strength for this week’s FlashMeeting. In addition, it was great to welcome a couple of North American educators into the mix to give their perspective on all this edtech-nical!

This time around we discussed TeachMeet East Midlands 2009, Tom Barrett’s proposal to use Google Docs for online reporting to parents, the idea and importance of ‘digital permanence’, and much more besides. 😀

ETR Weekly #3 – Open Source, Internet Safety update, iPhone Apps & more!

15 October 2008

ETR WeeklyThere were a good number of regulars missing from this week’s FlashMeeting – all for good reasons – but it was great to welcome some new faces. We began with a quick plug for David Noble’s Edonis project, which forms part of his Ed.D. research. We then discussed Doug, José & Ian’s involvement in an upcoming Becta-funded Open Source Schools project and issues surrounding that. After this, we moved on to an update on Internet Safety materials, prompted by Louise Jones, and finally we got to the wonder of iPhones and educational uses for the plethora of applications available for it.

ETR Weekly #2 – How to use audio effectively in education

11 October 2008

ETR WeeklyThis week’s discussion centred around the use of audio – including podcasting – in education. There were a good number of people at the meeting, and some experts in the field, such as Joe Dale and Mark Pentleton.

The agenda for the meeting is available on the ETR wiki, along with a link to a replay of the FlashMeeting itself, if you want the unedited version including video!
