The future of Education

Today we have heard from keynote speaker Sugata Mitra, from the University of Newscastle in the United Kingdom. His ideas about the future of education are truly inspiring. His research in Asia has proven that a broadband connection and a computer is enough for children to learn about even the most complicated of scientific topics. This challenges how we think about teaching and what the future holds for our classrooms.

Session 1: Digital Media to Enrich Literacy Across the Curriculum

There are a huge range of tools available on the web for us to enrich our literacy teaching. Not only are these tools free, but they allow us to be flexible and use a variety of strategies to engage and challenge our students. This session has allowed for plenty of time to play with some of the tools available to us inlcuding Edmodo, Smore, Lingro and tagzedo.
