Idea for ICT based homeworks; your thoughts and suggestions welcomed… | Great Maths Teaching Ideas | The 21st Century | Scoop.it

What is the point of homework? What are we trying to achieve by setting the kids homework?

Consolidation and practice of what was learnt in class? Promoting self-study skills and independent thought? Learning of new concepts?

I’d like to think we set homework for all these reasons.

The power of blogs and the perils of email - ICT in Education

The power of blogs and the perils of email -  ICT in Education | The 21st Century | Scoop.it

I originally wrote this article on 13th April 2009. Although the story that inspired it is no longer news (although the problem it relates to, about losing data, hasn’t gone away), I think that the interplay and rivalry between “mainstream media” and blogging is still interesting.

The ‘little book of ICT ideas’ - TheTeacherBuzz.com | The 21st Century | Scoop.it

We love this document that Mark Anderson has produced for a training day at his school in North Somerset, UK. It succinctly provides the name of Web2.0 tools and gives you examples of how to use them. From our experience teachers did need quick, easy and fast ways to connect to new technology ideas. We think Mark achieves this very well!

Claude Almansi's comment, October 31, 2011 3:24 AM
Thank you for the scoop, Susan: it is important because this framework is Unesco's. However the PDF of this framework (1) is strangely repetitive in its emptiness. The very few examples of possible activities were already run-of-the-mill in the former millennium, except for one foreseeing the use of the interactive whiteboards: but how many schools in emerging countries can afford them?

Also: how does a 94-page, multi-column, A4-formatted PDF read on a smart cell phone?
