ICT in Action

How can we inspire staff to take this journey into the Web 2 World? Why bother? Is it worth it? Yes, we must take risks to share this magic with our staff and students! An enhanced podcast can provide an exciting springboard to promote high standards of intellectual quality within an engaging learning environment. The creating process encourages student critical thinking and communication.
In the last few years many teachers have found themselves feeling as if they are on an island surrounded by new technologies and ideas that need to be added to their already burgeoning teaching responsibilities. This can be a confronting prospect for some and an area which needs to be addressed with careful planning and support. At Launceston Church Grammar School there has been a concerted effort to assist all teaching staff to come to grips with the changes needed for the successful integration of ICT.
What happens when you ask 120 students to tell the world about the one thing that matters most to them? You get the BPS Passion Projects. Working with Globalstudent blogs and a range of other add-ins and tools, our students asked questions, researched and presented personal anecdotes about topics as diverse as Coeliac disease, NBA, drums and computer gaming. Using the online blogging environment the 6 month long projects were largely completed as work done at home. This presentation will explore how the projects were developed, the tools used and how you can use Web 2.0 in your school.
Students of today are very different to students of ten or even five years ago. They have grown up in a generation where information is at their fingertips. They interact and socialise in different ways to previous generations. Today
