UNIC

Following yesterday’s conference, in Odense, we made our way, by train, to Copenhagen, for a session with  the National Agency for IT and Learning in Denmark, leading an informal session for executives. We shared a vast range of online possibilities to expand the curriculum.

There are so many pressures put upon educators these days that enjoyment, inspiration, creativity, and fun can be forced out of the classroom.

We looked at innovative ways to tackle the computing aspects of modern day life, but also how we can harness technology to inspire young people, and fire their imaginations, across the curriculum.

We took apart the powerful effect of using many Web2 tools and software (most of it free), hand-held devices and more, – modelling a way of teaching, where quality learning is the focus rather than the latest gadget; ‘what is said, rather than what is used to say it’. As well as showing a huge, and accessible, range of ways to engage, and motivate students of all ages, and abilities, we reinforced how these elements are not only essential for quality learning experiences to take place, but how they can also have a massive impact on standards, achievement… & enjoyment!”

Thank you to Claus Berg, Finn Togo and Karen Balle for the past two days in Denmark.
