Cyber Safety: Social Media, Cyberbullying and Sexting (Year 10 Presentation)

This is a copy of a presentation I gave to Year 10 students on Cyber Safety. It covers social media, cyberbullying and sexting. Although this is heavy going I think it is still important when talking about this subject matter that you also talk about how positive social media can be, when used appropriately.

Freaked Out by Simon Pridham

 

Freaked Out is a fantastic book full of useful information and guidance on how to use the iPad to support teaching and learning. It starts off with the very basics and builds momentum from there. Simon recommends apps and ways in which they can be used as well as suggesting useful websites that the reader can use to learn even more about digital technology.

The books goes into detail about pedagogy as well as how using digital leaders can play a role in the in a successful iPad programme.  It’s jam packed full of tips and I would certainly recommend it to anyone looking into using iPads in education. Even if you have already started your journey you could learn a lot.

Towards the back of the book Simon goes in to detail about some of the important factors often forgotten by some schools , such as infrastructure, security, MDM, social media and e-safety.

Professionalising The Use Of Social Media: Research in Practice (Presentation)

This is the presentation I gave at the Research in Practice annual meeting about Professionalising the use of social media. It was a great morning and I met some amazing people who are really interested in using social media.

(Updated) App Creation – Programming with Appshed: Quiz Builder (Tutorial Videos)

At school I am running an app design project for my year 7 students. Unlike many lessons they have experienced in their previous school life, there is very little teaching from the teacher, I am mostly there as a facilitator. I am of course there to help when necessary but my aim is to get students learning more independently. They must teach themselves using videos I have produced for them.

The Classroom of 2018: Video (Speaking)

Back at the end of November 2013, I took part in a series of talks organised and sponsored by Zurich called ‘Future History Now’.

My talk was entitled the ‘Classroom of 2018′. The talk has now been published and you can watch it below.

In my talk I mention the need for decisions about technology that affect teaching and learning being made by a teacher, the Director of ICT for instance and not just by an IT manager. Although I didn’t say it in this talk, I want to make it clear how important IT managers / network managers are in schools. They have the technical knowledge to make things happen. I realise I may cause offence to some but that was not my intention.

I also did an interview entitled ‘What will the classroom of 2018 look like’. You can read my interview by clicking on the link below and going to page 43.
