I like getting my students to make name glyphs at the start of the year. Visual representation of personal data. #cserTask2
I thought I would share this clip on Google's Project Glass. Technology like this might be far away from use in the classroom but I can't help but be excited by future possibilities! #cserTask1
Fortuitously, my year 5 class is learning about data later this week! After reading this module, I decided to utilize a resource we use regularly, Schoology, to create surveys. Children complete these for homework and by Friday, we have real data to investigate! The objective is to stimulate interest in maths by relating it to children's lives, integrate ICT into our learning and collect different types of data to manipulate. #cserTask2
I would be using Google Form to test my students in maths. This will help me to analyse test data and work on it.
What is a Monster’s Favourite Food?
Flynn helps Dodly gather information about monsters' favourite foods for Dodly's new cafe menu. Watch and learn while the two monsters research their friends' favourite foods and then display and organise this information. Will Flynn ever get fed at Cafe de Dodly?

I found this website when looking for somewhere to find useful data that could be used in the classroom. This website called 'Worldometers' provides a whole heap of data on a number of topics. For example, it provides frequently updated numbers on the current world population, number of births today, cars produced this year, mobile phones sold this today, forests lost this year, undernourished people in the world, water consumed this year, energy used today and SO MUCH MORE. As is obvious when looking at the site these data sets have a whole range of appli…
Great free course for learning the Data Process. Doing somethig similar with grade 8's next term with google forms and sheets .#cserTask1
I really like the new Add-on in Google Sheets called mapping sheets. If you enter your items with a location. You can plot the results on a Google Map.
Could you please give some more information about the Computer Hope resource? Which page do you go to to enter your name? Thanks
Teacher's Pick app. This app lets you randomly pick a student. It replaces the old icy pole stick in a jar on your desk. It's great to find class management options that help the teacher and keep the students engaged. #cserTask1
While this list looks intimidating, there are so many misconceptions that children have about using technology and it's important for teachers to be aware. This list addresses practicalities and complications of using ICT, in child-friendly language. My favourite is #36: "Mobile devices are "me" devices. The real world isn't like that." Something our young people often forget!

The following link takes you to a summary of a multi-level classroom activity designed for Years F-6. It involves gathering, representing and interpreting data relating to the colour of vehicles that pass a given spot in a given time. It also includes a link to an 'Infogram' and some suggested extension activities. It's an oldie but a goody that can easily be adapted to suit your needs. #cserTask2
I found this thought provoking but I am as yet undecided.

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
This week I plan to look at this video (Year 6). Looks at the combinations (or lack of) some number … in this case with buying chicken nuggets. I will firstly get the students to see if they can sort it out as nuggets are in packs of 6, 9 and 20. #cserTask2
This is an app that we use in our Reception classroom to encourage children to create narratives. We workshop this app, explicitly teaching them how to use it. It's an engaging app with many options for characters and scenes.#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.
