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 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…

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.
