Updates and Reflecting

It was a busy week last week with the Redbridge ICT Conference and Teachmeet East London.

Keep your rss readers tuned to the Redbridge Subject Leaders Blog as soon there will be video and/or audio downloads of the Keynote Speakers Ewan McIntosh and Karl Hopwood.

Speaking of Ewan - here is his blog post about teachmeet and guess what I'm on it. Cool. :o) I'm in the picture with the white robot.

If you missed Teachmeet and what to see what the fuss was - you can rewatch it on Flashmeeting.

Hopefully there will be as well some videos of the primary and secondary schools who showcased their work.


How do we encourage teachers to communicate and share there good practice?
We need to have a go with these new(ish) tools and technology and be prepared to fail.

"Don't Think. Try."

Are we doing all we can to promote and educate children about e-safety issues?
How do we get a uniform appropach?

Robosapiens Rule.

Recently I have been working with my class using Robosapien robots. This is a project that has been funded by Redbridge borough and is linked in with my AST work.

This is a video that I have prepared to show at Teachmeet East London.

More information about this project can be found on my Robosapien Project Blog.

Please check it out.

Try something it might fail.....
