Online discussion about educational technology

At the time of writing this, there are 15 minutes to go before Drew Buddie and I conduct what may be our last Teachshare discussion. Some of the topics to be discussed are:

  • The iPhone app that lets you take photos of people without their knowing it. Read my article about it if you haven’t heard about it.
  • How are schools responding to the budget cuts? Have they cut down on anything, dropped part of their ICT plans, or what?
  • What does the future hold for Learning Platforms? Now that there’s no central money in the pot for them, and nobody is going to force or cajole schools to use them anyway, are they going to continue to exist and be used? Should they? I’ve found in the course of some research I’ve been doing that people seem to either love them or hate them: I haven’t found anyone who is neutral on the subject! I’m hoping people will share their experiences, both good and bad.
  • Plus anything other people in the room wish to chat about.

All sessions start promptly at 7pm UK time unless otherwise stated, although you may enter a few minutes early if you wish. Here’s a world clock for colleagues who will be outside the UK at the time. The session will be hosted until 8pm, but the room won’t be closed until 9:30pm for colleagues who wish to continue the discussion. All sessions are recorded.
