#cserTask1 I see someone has already shared about farming technology but I am interested as I live on a farm and also teach at a school in a farming community.
The website I am sharing is called Digital Agriculture and it talks about digital innovations in farming. There are case studies about the way technologies are being used to improve animal and land management and to improve profit margins and control over what is happening on the farm.
On our far…

Yr 4 first semester task:  Links to History topic – Indigenous Australia pre 1788 and Maritime exploration.  After viewing the attached video children will be encouraged to gather as many examples of writing from over time beginning with own Queensland Cursive back through parents, grandparents etc.  We can add to this, an investigation into ways of printing our language – beginning with examples on the video and then hopefully looking at typewriters, stamp sets, dynamo label makers etc.  By end of semester a challenge for a small group (or whole class) would be h…

In Semester 1 2015 I am working with a team of Year 4 teachers across two campuses to introduce an integrated Humanities / Digital Technologies unit through a Project Based Learning Framework. We are not only the teachers in this project, we are the learners, particularly with digital technologies. I am sharing the beginning of the basic planning outline and the expected teaching and learning activities for the first four weeks of the term as this will determine the subsequent teaching / learning activities. 
The content descriptor we will introduce in the firs…

Option 3: Students could compare and contrast past and present technologies in terms of economic, environmental and social sustainability. In order to incorporate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives, students could research information about the food gathering / collecting, communication, navigation, tracking and tool production technologies of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and today's technologies for these aspects using the above sustainability criteria.

This is the first MOOC that I have participated in, I have really enjoyed the experience. The course has been fantastic and has enabled me to gain new ideas and strategies that I can use within my classroom. The use of social media has been fantastic and it has been great to have videos to view throughout. Thank you to the organisers of the course and I look forward to participating in many more of these courses in the future.

Option 3: a similar idea to Lisa Stapleton's… interviewing family members, especially across different generations to investigate the impact that computing technology has had on their life. As a migrant myself, I am so grateful for the enhanced opportunities to keep in touch and share aspects of my family life with my parents and extended family who live so far away from me! I remember organising the details to come to Australia 18 years ago with a friend, and we were faxing information to and fro, rather than emailing!
Reports would focus on one particul…

To further develop independence and to show students one application for QR codes , I adapted the QR Code Treasure Hunt activity for a small group of Year 6 and 7 students as part of their Term 4 transition experience into the senior school (the junior and senior school are on the same campus). These students have iPads with the QRafter Pro app.They also had maps of the school.

The first QR Code was placed on the classroom door with the school map reference for the second QR Code. The second and subsequent QR Codes contained the map reference for the next c…

One idea that I have is exploring how people access national news now? Students could explore by asking their parents and grandparents how they used to find out about national news, has it changed from radio to tv, to a mix of tv and online sources? What predictions do they have about printed newspapers? Below is a link to an online article about journalism students in universities and their views on newspapers.

Option 1: Create a lesson idea for a particular year level or a professional development session, which explores how a type of digital data (sound, text, or image) is represented and transferred.

Years 5/6 – Children could create plays using Sock Puppets (Ipad app) and try to describe and explain what happens to their voices on in the plays. They can adjust the voices that are created within the app for different puppets by giving a sample of their own voice and then adjust to a high, low or normal pitch. This could then lead into looking at the sound waves…
