A full on and fun day with a hundred colleagues from across the Canterbury area, at St Stephen’s Junior School, in Canterbury itself.
Being in such an historically rich setting, got us thinking: what would folk from the Medieval period think, if they were able to experience some of the technological wizardry we shared here today?!
As technology speeds forward, even these days, we too can feel left behind. The gargoyle’s wide mouthed amazement matches some of our modern day worries about new tools. We can fear that we don’t fully understand them. If we don’t, it is a good idea to be honest – there will be children who do. If we DO know, it is sometimes a good idea to pretend we don’t… that’s when some great learning takes place. Offering guidance & support to a teacher?! Motivation indeed!
TagGalaxy was a great way to start our explorations of the digital world today. A search for Canterbury bought up a lot of inter connected vocabulary for us to discuss, even before we zoomed in to the planet “Canterbury” + “cathedral” and ended up with the sun above. TagGalaxy – a non-linear discussion starter even before the images start pouring in.
Well done all today from Pilgrim Way, St Stephen’s Infants, Selling C of E School, Pembury School, Harbour Specialist School, Hythe Bay C of E School, Bridge and Patrixbourne CEP School, Northwood Centre PRU, Kings Hill School, Davington Primary,Barham Primary, Horizon Primary Academy, Hoath School, Mersham Primary School, Shears Green Infants, Brookfield Infant School, Shatterlocks Infant, Barton Junior, St Mary’s CEP School, Joydens Wood Infants, Rodmersham School, Canterbury Road Primary, Minster CE Primary, Portal House School and St Richards, Dover.
