My Digital Leaders article!!!

Hooray, very pleased to see my article on Digital Leaders out in the March edition of Primary Teacher Update this month!! Even got my title on the front cover.
Very keen to spread the word about Digital Leaders as a way of increasing potential and attainment of ICT in schools.
My next project for my doctorate is to convert this VERY SAME article- which is written in an informal style for practitioners- into an academic research piece for submission to an academic journal. What an exciting project! Also thinking about exploring pupil voice, through the roles of DLs, as the thread for my PhD thesis…. felling very inspired today! Any comments welcome!
You can read the article via the primaryteacherupdate website but you will need to pay to view.

QR Codes in the Classroom!!!

Despite all of the incredible things I saw, heard about, and played with at BETT 2014, the highlight had to be the TeachPrimary stand (publishers also of TeachNursery and TeachSecondary Magazines) handing out issues to hundered of people of their latest TeachPrimary magazine- containing my third and latest article!! In this article (see photo) entitled ‘Hidden Histories’ I detail a lesson which brings QR Codes (those little black and white squares you have probably seen on packaging and newspaper pages) into the classroom, bridging an exciting divide between our virtual world and our real one. If you are interested in how to use QR Codes in your class, message me for further information!
