Never Stop Learning

I am not basing these ideas of MINE on research/theories (that I have read) but on the data of students that I have taught and the outcomesthey have achieved. (I guess, I have just figured these things out…) If you disagree, please do comment with how I can better my practice for the students I am responsible for. Christopher WaughEDUTRONIC.

Augmented Reality in the Classroom

Since beginning the iPad journey in our school, I have been dying to use some of the Augmented Reality apps available on the iPad. I didn't want to dive in and use it with no substance I wanted to make sure there was real potential to enhance the learning in the classroom. For those people who are not familiar with the term "Augmented Reality," here is a web definition: "Augmented reality (AR) is a live, direct or indirect, view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data. It is related to a more general concept called mediated reality, in which a view of reality is modified (possibly even diminished rather than augmented) by a computer.

If that is a little too technical, Augmented Reality is a way of using a picture, known as a trigger image, to generate a video, slideshow or computer generated graphic.

Developing Literacy in the teaching and learning of Mathematics – Sam Down, Durrington High School In line with the new National Curriculum (2013) which states “Teachers should develop pupils’ spoken language, reading and writing as integral aspects of the teaching of every subject”, we are currently focusing on the different ways we can embed literacy into the teaching and learning of Mathematics at Durrington High School.

Edudemic - Education Technology Tips For Students And Teachers. I have made no secret of my fondness for generic apps that enhance learning.

Explain Everything, Google Drive and Evernote can aid the educator and student alike. However, there is a new contender on the block for the No.1 app in education. Socrative 1.0 was very good – Socrative 2.0 looks excellent. This brief introduction to Socrative 2.0 highlights its potential and possible use in the classroom.
