Padlet: A simple tool that can be accessed on computers, iPads, iPhones, etc. This website can provide the class with a 'blank wall' in which ideas can be generated, sorted and discussed in one, easy to view place. I am completing my fourth year in a Bachelor of Education so haven't seen this used in classrooms but I think it could be great! So excited to hear about the technologies that teachers use in their classrooms so hopefully next year goes smoothly!

This is the first year I've taught Information and Software Technology to Year 10. As a result I've become excited at the prospect of introducing coding to our primary school.

The three levels of programming (object only, object + some code, code only) should make this device useful from Kindergarden to Year 10. 
I also believe that devices such as the Raspberry Pi and 3D printers (as mentioned by others) will become more common place in primary schools.

Where are things heading?#cser…

I am always at a loss of where to start when asked to share an idea for educational technology.

I think the best thing to do rather than share an idea or a bit of educational technology is to share a few frameworks for thinking about it.

The first is the SAMR model developed by Ruben Puentedura.  SAMR looks at phases or stages of pedagogy that incorporates technology.

The second is TPACK developed from an earlier model called PCK it allows a discussion or framework on the integrated nature of technological, pedagogical and content knowledge th…
