ICT Digital Technology Presentations with ITE
Sheffiedhallam.jpg
Student teachers creating presentations about digital literacy
This activity idea involves student teachers sharing practice(topic) of digital literacy use in the classroom in order to promote discussion(ta) and reflection on digital literacy and activities that promote e-skills(topic) development in the classroom. The use of student-prepared presentations promotes active learning(ta) and reflection on their learning, encouraging development of the issues explored in their assignments. It also involves questioning(ta) from an audience, encouraging deeper thinking through collaboration(ta) and discussion(ta).

A DEFT case study: "Teach in Sheffield" - using digital video
This case study looks at the use of digital video and video editing software to support professional development of pre-service teachers' use of ICT for teaching and learning. One of the lesson ideas from the case study is available as a separate resource at Digital video in ITE
ICT Monsters using Scratch
Monsters2.jpg
Children using a computer programming language to create moving monsters
This activity developed the specific e-skills(topic) of programming and digital animation. It could be considered the first step towards enabling children to design and create their own games(tool) using sprites and user-input controls. Computer programming helps to develop investigation(ta) skills as it requires the use of a previously unknown language(ta) to execute commands, which also develops the skills of mathematical thinking(ta). Computer programming also involves the use of modelling(ta) and planning(ta) techniques. Because Scratch is an open source programming language, this also creates opportunities for homework(ta), as the children are able to download the software for themselves at home.
ICT Data Logging inservice booklet
Data logging inservice1.png
A compendium of CPD and ITE activities on why we use sensors and the practicalities of implementing their use
Activities and advice for using ICT(i) for use in inquiry(i) based learning and the scientific method(i).
ICT Creativity and ICT
Exploringcreativity.png
Building communities and exploring creativity
This unit engages with the debates surrounding the term ‘creativity(tool)' and explores ways in which ICT(i) creates new opportunities for creativity and collaboration(ta)
ICT T-MEDIA video case studies of ICT use
T-medialogo.jpg
Multimedia tools for professional development
The materials aim to stimulate debate and reflection rather than present models of ‘best practice’. They include hyperlinks to video clips from the emerging pedagogical themes, built-in prompts for thinking and discussion, suggested alternative approaches, and analytic commentary from teachers and researchers involved. They illustrate and question how the technologies can be exploited to enhance learning in real classrooms. The resources can be used by individuals or groups of colleagues / student teachers.
ICT Digital Resources for ITE
CaseStudyReview.jpg
Student teachers reflecting upon case studies relating to Digital Literacy
This activity idea is an excellent of example of sharing practice(topic) of current teachers with student teachers in order to promote discussion(ta) and reflection on digital literacy and activities that promote e-skills(topic) development in the classroom. The lecturer uses questioning(ta) to promote active learning(ta) through collaboration(ta) and discussion(ta) of the resources.
ICT Creating Instructional Videos
DinningtonComp.jpg
Children create instructional videos to upload to YouTube

The activity furthers e-skills(topic) through the use of whole class(ta) participation. It develops e-safety(topic) skills through discussion of the issues relating to posting digital content online. Children were allowed to choose their own subject for the video, although this could be set by a teacher with a specific outcome in mind, or could be tailored to cover a particular topic or subject. It could, for instance, be used to explain their mathematical thinking(ta).

Zotero application Zotero workshop
115px
Using Zotero will save you hours of typing out references!
This page describes an idea for a participatory workshop, to get started with Zotero. The workshop mainly focusses on why you want to use Zotero, rather than the technical details of Zotero. However, in preparation, participants do some self-guided exercises to develop basic familiarity with Zotero. At the workshop, we'll discuss
  • Collecting references for an academic publication in any discipline.
  • Collecting text from blogs for social science research.
  • Setting up a shared group on Zotero, for sharing references and files.
  • Using Zotero for research synthesis and systematic literature review.

We'll relate these ideas to the concrete research interests of the participants. For those participants in academic positions, we'll also discuss how to use Zotero in undergraduate and graduate teaching and research.
