An end, a beginning

The reason I came to teach at Castlemaine North Primary School was that I wanted to know what was possible when you combined a great school, with hard-working teachers and open-minded students, with my passion for technology. Two years later, I think I have my answer.

Pretty much anything is possible. The highlights of the last two years would be too numerous to mention... but a video-enabled maths course enabling students to work at ten different levels simultaneously;, having seven…

Epic Mindshift

It isn’t often my whole conception of how I teach shifts, but it did yesterday. I had one of the most powerful conversations around education of my career yesterday. And the people who shifted my thinking were thirty-eight students between the ages of ten and twelve.

You may have picked up from my writing lately that the idea of gaming in education has been swirling around in my head since the Teaching and Learning with Vision conference. These two TED talks have also shaped my ideas…

A global community emerges

I really couldn't be happier with the way the Writers' club is shaping up. Check out this conversation on one of the student writer's blogs....

An author from Drysdale in Victoria, Australia is encouraged in his writing, and receives feedback from, students at Castlemaine North in Victoria, Australia and a student in Lahore, Pakistan. This occurred without prompting from the teacher, and…

reality bites

Richard Close & Joni Schwartz shared some appalling stats during their Techniques on How to Handle Poverty presentation.  It is truly shocking to find out how much our educational system is failing young black men, that children in poverty are facing educational trauma and that our…

youth voices rock!

I just attended the iEarn Adobe Youth Voices session - highlighting voices from US, Brazil, Romania, South Africa & Uganda. I think empowering kids to share their voices and ideas for changing the world is one of the most important things we can do for them. 

It was so interesting to hear perspectives from other countries, especially somewhere like Romania…

I'm changing, are you?

I didn't really know what to expect from this conference, but now I think I'm one of the luckiest people on the planet to have found out about it and then actually decided to participate. You know the old adage, "you get what you pay for", which follows closely on the heels of "nothing in life is free". What you pay for this conference is time and what you get are an amazing array of ideas, tools and contacts. But there is another cost as well and that's the cost of knowledge - of learning…

Fash Protests, Flash Events and "Flash Learning"

While the old guard of indexed based hierarchical industrial based classrooms keep perseverating on testing and structured curriculum, the vast world outside of the colonial classroom learns via relational collaborative Internet that test by the impact ideas and knowledge have on the real world.

While Dewey and democratic learning are the reality of how we learn and leverage the global Internet for each moment living on our planet.

Are the curriculum and methods of STEM, SCORM,…

A tale of three cities - Lahore, Guadalajara, Castlemaine

What do these three places have in common? At first glance, almost nothing - situated on three different continents, a small town and two large cities, three languages, two religions (at least)... yet all three schools share our Writers' club, and this week we at Castlemaine North Skyped with Lahore and Guadalajara as a way of introduction.…

Over the past few years, a new approach to signaling individual skills and competencies has emerged the cutting edge of the education sector. Badges, already used successfully in games, social networking sites and youth development groups such as the Girl Scouts and 4-H, are now being developed in digital form to represent the wide range of non-traditional learning experiences critical to success in a global society.
