This was an article written in the Herald Sun last Wednesday about the use of technology in kinder settings.  I found it very interesting because there is a lot of discussion about whether or not young children should have access to screens and modern technology in kinder settings.  I believe that they should be in a controlled and meaningful way for example an ipad which can open up a whole world of possiblities.  #cserTask1

As a Teacher Librarian in a primary school, I see the use of Digital technologies impacting enormously on our role. It was with great interest I came upon the report "Leading in and beyond the Library" , commenting on the value of the school library and its staff in today's digital world. I love the comment by Steven Webb, Superintendent of Vancouver Public Schools in Washington: 'Teacher librarians are an essential piece of our digital transformation professional development ecosystem'.#cserTask1

This week with my year 9 Students we have been looking at how 'technology' allows us to gain a better understanding of the Universe and we looked at how scientists have moved from simple visual observations to using technology. The newest of the Big Bang discoveries involves the use of telescopes. We also looked at the Hubble Telescope and the variety of technologies that the Hubble telescope uses to make observations of space.

Hi everyone!
I work part-time in an all boys' primary school and issues of bullying, let alone cyber bullying are always a concern. The federal government has recently proposed the appointment of a children's e-safety commissioner to help protect children from cyber-bullying on social media. However, there is a lot of opposition to this proposal, namely as it will be hard to police and assumes a 'one size fits all' approach.  What do you think?

I am a Reception teacher and we are currently using i-Pads and i-Pod touches in the classroom. We are constantly looking for new suitable apps. I recently found this Facebook page that brings you a range of apps which can be used in the classroom using iDevises. The page posts information about apps that are being offered at a discounted rate or even free for a limited time. Lots of Junior Primary apps.   #cserTask1

I'm attaching a link to this website having just watched Mick Ebeling's prosthetic arm video. I have been wanting to learn more about coding and getting students excited about creating with digital technology for a while now and was very inspired by Mick's  "You commit – and then you figure out how the heck you are gonna do it." This looks like a good place to start learning about coding -for myself and our students. #csertask1

I am currently the yr.3-7 Science teacher for my school. I usually teach upper primary (yr. 6 or 7).  In the past we have used Scratch or some form of robotics with the children when it comes to technology. This year my employing authority has set up some online PD for the teachers to learn basic coding/programming. We complete the 20 hours of the course and get 2 hours towards accreditation and hopefully and interest in applying this in our classrooms. It is a fun way for children to learn basic coding and at the end of every activity you can see the Java script …
