I’m working on the next edition of Digital Education, and it contains some really great articles. For example, Mel Thompson asks whether philosophy should influence educational policy-making, which may seem a bit outré but, surprisingly enough, there is much that advocates of “computational thinking” would agree with I think.
John Partridge, who wrote about project-based learning for a previous issue of Digital Education (see that link for his article), evaluates how it’s going, now that the new Computing curriculum has been in place in England for nearly a term.
There are articles by Peter Twining and Mike Sharples, academics who are currently undertaking research that is of practical use for teachers, while Darren Bartlett suggests five practical steps you or your technician can take right now to make sure your school computing set-up is secure.
All that plus news, views and some interesting-in-a-quirky-way stuff!
If you’d like to see a sample edition of the newsletter in pdf format, click on the picture of the cover of a previous issue, on the right-hand side of the ICT in Education website. Newsletters are usually in html or text format.
Subscribers get access to a range of freebies, such as a guide to assessment for learning techniques, assessment innovation and making the most of your interactive whiteboard.
That’s all from me for now!
