Learn the Web's core | CoreDogs | technologies CoreDogs is a set of online texts and lessons that practitioners and/or learners can use to learn how the web works, how to build websites, and how to build simple web applications. Users can navigate through the lessons in order or skip to parts that are of the most interest to them. The CoreDogs lessons can be used by learners who want to learn coding on their own. CoreDogs also allows users to re-use and redistribute the lessons to use in learning environment instruction (just make sure to credit CoreDogs). I would suggest this could be an essential part of Functional Skills ICT; preparing learners for the "real world".

Learn To Type Really Fast With The Intelligent Touch Typing Tutor TIPP10 [Cross Platform] Keyboarding practice has little to do with music and more to do with learning how to type – fast. Even as I am writing this article, my eyes are flitting between the computer keys and the screen. It’s not a practice that’s recommended for hitting the accelerator if you want to speed up your typing.
Today, learning to touch type is a no-brainer, it's almost an essential survival skill in the digital jungle. Improving productivity and potentially increasing the money earned, within the limited hours available. Learners just need to be methodical with their practice. TIPP10 is a free touch typing tutor for Windows, Mac OS and Linux. The ingenious thing about the software is its intelligence feature. TIPP10 | technologies
WordTalk - A free text-to-speech plugin for Microsoft Word. For people with reading and writing difficulties, having text reinforced by hearing it read aloud can be very useful. Do you and/or your learners proof read their work? When producing documents,I always read the text out loud and, quite often, recorded it at the same time, using Audacity. That way I spot mistakes that my eyes often miss and I also have the text in a format many learners/colleagues preferred (Audio/mp3 files) The Story of Send | technologies

ICT Self Assessment booklet A few weeks ago, I stumbled across ICT Teaching & Learning Framework 2011, which was written by Matt Lovegrove and included contributions from Steve Greenfield, David Sheppard & Claire Waite. Here is the Framework which can be found on his blog. The beauty of this work was that it was licensed for sharing, remixing and adapting. This is exactly the type of thing we should all be doing in my opinion and I must sincerely thank those who wrote it for saving me a tremendous amount of time by not having to write my own. What I did do, however, was to create a self-assessment booklet that can be used in conjunction with the framework. I hate assessment, but this book allows the children to assess their learning at the end of the week.

Good cop, bad cop? How to manage tech change in a BYOD and cloud world The rise of consumerisation and on-demand services means business relationship managers need to foster IT innovation, not stifle it. The realisation that enterprise IT had to manage relationships actively with the business - a hateful term - was one of the main IT organisational consensus points of the past decade. CIOs everywhere rushed to created CIO Mini-Me's - business relationship managers acting as the interface between business units and IT. I know - I was one for several years.
Get your computer Research shows that everything practitioners do to inspire and encourage learners – providing them the right skills to go online – will gradually slip away if there is no PC at home to keep the excitement alive and provide easy, instant access to the internet. For many learners, engaged with ACL/PCDL/IAL/WBL and other Learning Providers, and others within the communities they support, the last significant barrier to getting people connected is the cost of a PC in the home. It’s not enough for them to go online while attending taster or longer courses – the goal is to make it possible for them to stay online – and to feel the wonderful benefits of... - using Skype with friends and family; – unlimited video calls to any part of the world;
