  • Blog Post: You can't just airdrop technology

    A principal recently confessed that he'd ordered a bunch of tablets for a whole year group of his students…and hadn't yet told the teachers. I was reminded about the comment when watching Anthony Salcito (Microsoft's global Vice President for Education) talking at the TEDx event in Paris in November...
  • Blog Post: Social media and student recruitment–why is it so important?

    Remember Shift Happens , from five years ago? Of course, it spawned a lot of similar style presentations, and they're still rolling on today - many with the same soundtracks. Here's an interesting one that would wake up the start of a conference or meeting, from Erik Qualman (author of socialnomics)...
  • Blog Post: The power of TED for education – coming to your classroom in condensed form

    I love listening to TED talks . I only wish I had enough time when I was sitting in front of a screen and could watch more of them.

    Kinect - it’s amazing to think what one small sensor could do for teaching and learning.

    I’m meeting up with the nsquared people again on Monday, to take a look at some of their education applications. They’re an innovative software developer in Sydney who I first met in London when they were doing clever things with the Microsoft Surface. Now they have moved deeper into creating immersive...
  • Blog Post: CRM in Education - University of Teesside video case study

    When I think about CRM in education, my first reaction tends towards managing the student relationship - a version of a super Student Management System. But the more case studies I come across, the more I realise that there is a very broad spread of uses for a CRM system in education (like Kiel’s and...
  • Blog Post: Desire2Learn talk about learning analytics and student mobility

    We’ve just finished the Microsoft World Partner Conference in Los Angeles, which included handing over the Worldwide Education Partner of the Year Award to Desire2Learn for their Learning Management System. The Desire2Learn solution covers a wide range of areas - including learning management, analytics...

    The video below is an advert from the US, advertising the student PC offer Halo Spartan promotes the US Student offer - buy a PC, get an Xbox free It’s a shame we don’t get adverts like this - or offers like this - in Australia… I know this is slightly off topic - but then it is Friday afternoon, and...
