We further focus on the role of online learning, with Christian Smith’s paper on online learning as both a learner and leader while Noreen Dunnett considers whether the Twittersphere is the new VLE as she reports on the use of Twitter with ITT students. Dr Helen Boulton reports on another project with trainee teachers to develop technology-based practice within core subjects and to encourage reflective and collaborative practice.
Back in the classroom Steve Bunce explores the role of knitting and its relation ship to programming while Mark Baker offers his thoughts on the Victorian classroom compared to its modern counterpart and Glenys Hart considers several freely available tools for supporting literacy in her article, “Words and Pictures”. Mark Baker, in a second paper, offers his thoughts on copyright issues in schools and the launch of copyrightandschools.org – essential reading. Meanwhile Nick Goligher reports on RiskIT at Bangkok Patana School. We also have our usual sponsoring partner papers with contributions from NEC and Capita IT Services Ltd.
