To begin we have a paper on ‘Outstanding Teachers, Practice and ICT use’ from Andy Goodwyn and Carol Fuller – some useful messages here for teacher training and CPD. Julia Briggs explores a model for online learning in primary schools while the potential of 3D projection in the classroom is the subject for Professor Dr Anne Bamford in a paper produced by the Learning in Future Education (LiFE) project. Next up we have an update from Scotland on the Keith Memory Blog, an online project recording memories of the old Keith Primary before it was replaced by a new school in February 2012, provided by Claire Griffiths. Voting systems have been around for some time and in the paper by Samuel King their use in undergraduate mathematics teaching is explored, with lessons that go beyond that sector to include maths and science subjects in all phases.
Regular contributor Bob Harrison raises further key questions, this time asking “Will investment in ICT/Digital Technologies raise standards?” He explores whether, in fact, this is actually the wrong question to be asking.
We finish with our popular sponsors section with case studies on Ergo’s ‘Total Control’ solution, a Steljes report on a BSF installation, an NEC paper on the use of 3D projection in a German school plus an example of Britannica Image Quest in a London school.
