DIY auto-marking spelling tests

I'm not involved in education any more apart from being a dad, (so, pretty involved I guess really!). But as a parent helper at my son's school we've made a weekly online spelling test, which auto-marks the learners' attempts and sends the results to an email address. It's another angle for the onslaught on raising fundamental literacy skills.The coding was done by a colleague and he's made it so easy to make a new weekly test that I wanted to share it. It takes me about 15 minutes to create a…See More

Digital exchange with a child in India

Posted on March 24, 2009 at 2:16am 0 Comments

I am searching for a child in India who might do a digital exchange with my son! He is 8 and at school in Manchester, England. His topic this term is India and I wondered if there was an Indian child who might like to talk with him via Skype, or video message or audio or photos or text, to share their experiences of life and culture, and learn about each other's country.

Please reply here or message me if this is of interest!

Thanks

YouTube annotations

Posted on August 7, 2008 at 2:24am 0 Comments

YouTube have a beta tool - annotations. I'm sure more features will appear soon as YouTube have acquired Omnisio but this will have huge implications in any curriculum area where the creation of media is core. I teach music and I've been waiting for something like this for a long time!

I've done a trial of how a music track might be delivered in YouTube with an ongoing analysis. Currently it is not possible to include the… Continue

blog sponsorship

Posted on August 10, 2007 at 11:27am 0 Comments

Well, I'm not a prolific blogger, either here or there . I do it to focus my thoughts. Each to his own. I don't get many hits or comments, so I was most surprised to get an email from a well known elearning company asking to talk sponsorship with me. I'm not naive enough to be flattered by this but I'm not sure what to do. What's the catch? What's the hook?

ning and vle integration

Posted on June 10, 2007 at 1:23pm 0 Comments

I've been really impressed by the ning interface (and this network of course). I had a look round some other ning communities today (wow, there are many!) but few as active as this one.

One of the really appealing things about a ning community is the web interface. It integrates so many crucial aspects so sweetly - blogs, forums, video, audio, images.

The 'my page' is a neat feature that I've not seen in Moodle (our institution's VLE) and I wondered how I could integrate a ning… Continue

Pete, thanks for the support of the new book. I am intrigued with the site that you referenced in your post to me. Please take a look at our new Clearinghouse at http://www.curriculum21.com I would value your suggestions either for the Clearinghouse or on our "ning" at the Learning Commons. HHJ

Pete-Thanks for the post. I was actually using that spot to "hold" that Jing file so I could embed it on my blog. I was struggling to get it directly there so this was my work around.

I am relatively new here. I am from Ghana and I'm just here to learn, contribute as well as link up with like-minded people who will be willing to share their experiences as well as help in spreading the concept of distance learning and adult education to Africa, which lags behind as far as education is concerned. My company has developed a television program called 'ADULTS IN EDUCATION' which is used in teaching,especially adults, how to read and write as well as general tips on how to take care of oneself. We also treat social issues as well. Television is still the widest means of disseminating information here in Ghana. i am a writer and a film director.

hi Pete, I found my way to your blog and subscribed: super! I teach mythology/folklore online so the whole world of online texts and images has been really blissful - the world of music online must be an incredibly exciting field to explore with your students, too. I am lucky because myth often resonates with my students in a powerful way... but NEVER as powerfully as the music they love resonates with them, I know that! creating online learning experiences built around and with music must be very satisfying indeed! :-)

Thanks Pete.....you're right. The picture is improving though not many appreciate the impact of music and technology.

Hi
Great to have a musician here (I play sax and guitar and write songs for a rock band that I am in).
Take care
Kevin
