Taking us into the realms of Web 3.0. Amrit Pal Kaur of the University of Adelaide presents an exploratory study of trainee science teachers attitudes to use of certain ICT tools while Pete Bradshaw and Sarah Younie explore trainee teachers engagement in a cross-curricular news project. There are important lessons in both papers.
We also have papers on the integration of technology into the learning experience. Andrew Lickley reports on a YHGfL project using QR codes and PSPs with primary children at the Dales Countryside Museum while Dr Arjette Karemaker explores the use of Clicker to support early learning and literacy. Also, Steve Higgins reflects on how to integrate multi-touch technology in classrooms at Durham University.
There is still much debate on ICT which may filter through to policy makers. Bob Harrison offers his views on the changing landscape of ICT in schools and reports on a Westminster Education Forum debate and a TDA Music technology event.
There is light at the end of the tunnel, a theme taken up by Richard Smith, who offers some useful pointers for the many of us taking our first faltering steps in the new world of freelance school improvement. And finally, in our sponsoring partners section there are articles on MOBI, TextHelp and Espresso Primary.
