iPad Workflow Challenges

iPad Workflow Challenges

All teachers want to deliver successful lessons and create opportunities for valuable feedback to students. The addition of technology is supposed to make this an easy and engaging process; anything less will have teachers reverting to tried and tested methods in the classroom. So much has been written about how iPads can enhance creativity, engage […]

The Surface RT: First Impressions

The Surface RT: First Impressions

This post is not an attempt to write a comprehensive overview of the Surface RT. I’ve only had it for a few days but thought it may be useful to write down my initial impressions of the device and to consider its potential for use in an educational setting. As I’m not going to be […]

#doingthework Tablets: Simon Widdowson @xannov

With many schools currently considering the use of mobile technology in teaching, there are educators in a similar position to mine who are wondering what and how other schools are implementing these devices. We’ve all read those great articles on how to get ready for mobile learning, but I thought it would be interesting to […]

BYOD: Radley College Future of IT Mini Conference

BYOD: Radley College Future of IT Mini Conference

Picture this: An entrance which directs you to the golf course, boys walking about in undergraduate black gowns and students posing somewhat Tommy Hilfiger-esque on the steps of the cricket pavilion. Add to this Ian Yorston cycling confidently by in pink socks and giving the impression of a traditional college professor and you quickly realise […]

Ideas for using tablets in the Year 7 ICT Programme

Ideas for using tablets in the Year 7 ICT Programme

Hand an iPad to a group of students who are not used to a tablet and you can pretty much expect the first 10 -15 minutes to be taken up with them taking silly photos of each other. There’s nothing wrong with this, I believe that it needs to happen each time I start working with a […]

My view on: multipliers – How The Best Leaders Make Everyone Smart

It took some time to ask friend Nick Dennis (@nickdennis) why he was repeatedly tweeting about Multipliers.  Nick is an avid reader of ‘clever’ books and tweets regularly about his latest read. He was adamant that this one was excellent. Even now, he regularly refers to behaviours referenced by the authors Liz Wiseman and Greg McKeown and will say, “Think Multipliers […]

Quick and Easy Webpages in Frog

Quick and Easy Webpages in Frog

A plea to James Shackley, Frog Support Manager as to how we could create a quick and easy webpage in Frog led to the exploration of Activity Pages. This is such an easy drag and drop method of building up a content webpage. You can create several of these and then link them together to […]

Going SOLO with Charles 1

Going SOLO with Charles 1

I have developed more than a passing interest in SOLO taxonomy and I hang on to words of encouragement from those who urge, “Go for it.” It just makes sense to me; a simple way to enable students to note how far along the road they are to becoming astute critical thinkers. Today’s year 8 […]

10 iPad ideas for Senior School English

10 iPad ideas for Senior School English

Although there are many apps currently being produced for iOS devices and teachers regularly recommend which of these they use in lessons, I haven’t always found it easy to discover a host of successful ideas for a particular academic subject, especially those which make use of an iPad in a senior school. Most educators collect bits and […]
