Working with Bristol University
Science - Boyles law
28 pupils, 4 'ludites' (including one of the most able kids in the school) not using the tech.
Other kids had finished writing up experiment when the other four hadn't even finished drawing initial graph.
Videoing bowl of water, tapping every sec, every 2 secs etc. Video could then be freeze framed.
Kids pointed out if they missed a slide they are always thinking what happened. Teacher now makes ppts available for pupils on the devices.
Kids download word doc with homework questions and then the kids upload them back - and can see on projector the folder filling up as they are submitted.
Using flash animations in Science
Students creating their own wiki in science revision. Collaborative. (Mediawiki hosted on schools own website)
Podcasts from BBC Bitesize. Downloaded onto schools server.
Microsoft reader for revision notes. Microsoft have free program that adds into Word to save docs as eBooks
Interesting look at using voting style program in primary as a way of kids explaining answers rather than just voting.
SumsOnline program gives instant feedback where if kid is wrong it explains why. Teacher feels her role has completely changed - she is now a facilitator.
Video of primary kids using PDAs to take pics and videos while standing in a stream. Aquapacs used. Kid describing his video talks about the video quality being quite good despite it being through the aquapac and in the shade of trees. Wildkey software being used.
Primary teacher says that she found that kids filmed her as she was teaching to include in revision 'notes'.
