ICTs in Education in the Future?

June 9, 2009 Leave a comment

Yesterday at a staff development session for teachers I asked the following question both within the room and via Twitter, ‘Describe the Future of ICTs in Education… in one word’

Tweet on ICTs in Future

I received several answers in the room and within 10-minutes had 16 from Twitter, which I think impressed the participants! (“Now I get Twitter!”)  All these answers are combined with the ones from my presentation slides in this Wordle.

ICTs in Education in one word

Anything you’d like to add?  It was a very interesting exercise both in terms of how well it worked as a twitter demonstration but also in terms of the answers.

Microsoft Surface

My presentation was followed by a very interesting one by Gordon Rimmer from the education arm of Microsoft.  I may say more about this later but for now a video that took me by suprise as one of the teachers in it is a school friend!  So absolutely must be embedded below!  And also gives me a great excuse to share the Microsoft Surface parody video too!

Wordle Tag Clouds

Wordle is a great tool for creating attractive tag clouds. It allows you to start with your own text (e.g. pasted from a word file),  or any page incorporating a feed such as a blog or a (social bookmarking) account.  The top left Wordle is this blog, the bottom left my and the final one is my master’s dissertation.  It’s never looked so good!

I found this in Ed Techie via actualal on Twitter.
