On a roll now so creating the second post of the evening – better late than never! A couple of weeks ago as a celebration event to signify the end of the Inpsire Create Teach project ran by Wiltshire ICT team, a conference was held at Center Parcs, Longleat.
The keynote speakers were both entertaining and informative and set the scene for what was going to be a fab day for all involved. We were the first cohort of the project which is now involved with cohort 2 and as we had completed the project were asked to present seminars of a topic of our choosing but realting to the project. I anticipated that many would select a journey approach and I was keen to do something a little different but just as relevant. For me, the most important dawn awakening was to surpass the motivational and engagement pull of technology (specifically the iPads we were using) and concentrate on the pedagogical underpinning that I believed was necessary to ensure deeper and more meaningful learning. My Prezi was called iPadagogy – integrating iPads tomake learning relevant, ,meaningful and contextual. It is below for you to peruse and enjoy (hopefully!) The conference itself was great, opportunities to be with like minded people who wanted to share and help each other is always a brillliant incentive. The event was and has always been very well orgainsed and was a real pleasure to be part of.
