This post is just referring to an a Professional Learning session our staff attended recently on using ICT in the classroom. The session was primarily about using technology to inspire writing in the primary classroom. A lot of the ideas were taken form Lee Parky’s excellent blog http://mrparkinsonict.blogspot.com.au/ I am a massive fan of Mr Parkinson’s work. He writes simply and his site is filled with imaginative ways to ‘camouflage learning’ as he puts it. Some of the ideas were also mentioned on http://www.literacyshed.com/ particularly the stuff about using music to inspire writing, which I believe Mr Parkinson also contributed to. Here is the presentation that was used during the session our staff attended:
Feel free to check out the two great sites I mentioned above and or use the presentation above for ideas. I would love to hear from anyone that is using any of the ideas above or has any other great ideas as well.
