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

STEVEN COOKE▸ F-6 Digital Technologies MOOC

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 …

At the start of the year I attended a P.D for graduate teachers and was taken by the idea of using online fantasy worlds as story ideas/starters for students. The concept is based around using the online fantasy world as a visual stimulant to help students come up with a narrative. I think utilising something like this (see hyperlink) will allow teachers to connect narrative writing to something many students enjoy on a day to day basis. Please scroll down to the "Dreamgiver" video – it is the most relevant.

It's taken me a while to post because I have so enjoyed reading (and following links) in the discussion so far….thanks everyone for sharing.  I work as a Library & ICT Coordinator in a boy's primary school and have always been interested in technologies. 
There is so much going on 'out there' that it's hard to keep up so I subscribe to blogs in order to follow like-minded individuals (who clearly don't sleep).  Here is one of my favourite bloggers:

Rayma Bryant. (Nee McGregor) Last year, after completing the infinity task (Gifted and talented) of making a helmet that could be used to protect our defence force, the students were very excited to see in the newspaper that Queensland police are arming their faces with glasses with Robo-cop like abilities. This gave a deeper meaning to their project. Two of the helmets were printed using a 3D printer. #cserTask1
