Raising achievement in History at KS4 using e-learning

SHP 2009 slides

Click here to go straight to the slides

I’m at the annual Schools History Project Conference for the fifth time this weekend and am presenting for the third time. This is the first time that I’ll be presenting without my partner in crime, Nick Dennis, as he’s unable to make the conference. It’s a shame, but it means I can focus entirely on what I did with my Year 10 History class this academic year at my previous school.

I’ve used the Cooliris presentation method, pioneered by Alan Levine, and which I piloted in my Open Source School presentation earlier this month. I’m not so sure he uses a Nintendo Wiimote (along with Darwiin Remote) with Cooliris, though. It’s an excellent presentation method – and free if you create your slides in OpenOffice.org (as I do!) 😀

The easiest way to share the link directly to the slides that go with this presentation is to go to:

  1. really enjoyed your presentation on saturday doug. think many of the ideas would also work with KS5 too. Just hope my access to ICT at Bedlington is nearly as good as your old school!

    may well be in touch to come and nick some more of your ideas from the academy; hope that’s ok!!


  2. I enjoy reading your blog. It has given me some insight about teaching and I think other teachers will benefit from what you are writing.

    I have added it to my education portal at http://www.educationreporting.com/#blogs

    Let me know if you have any questions and thanks for your ideas and thoughts.

    Steu Mann, M. Ed.
