Education in a technological world) During this half term, I've been busy working with our three lower school classes on a rather special project in their ICT lessons.

Motivating Young Learners with Video (by David Dodgson) Back in the sepia-tinged days of 2010 when I was still very much finding my way around blogs and Twitter, I was virtually introduced to Barbara and she kindly offered me the chance to do a guest post here on Teaching Village about how I used PowerPoint in class. 18 months on, we again get the chance to collaborate as part of the EVO 2012 Digital Storytelling for Young Learners team along with some other fantastic educators, namely Shelly Terrell, Özge Karaoğlu, Esra Girgin, Jennifer Verschoor, Michelle Worgan, and Sabrina De Vita (full details are included at the end of this post). As part of our EVO event, I will co-moderate a session about Video Stories with Young Learners with Özge. As a prelude to that, am delighted to have the chance to return to Teaching Village to share some of the ideas I’ve used in class, often with little more than a video-recording device and some editing software – and creative young students of course!
