After a suggestion received, quite fittingly, from another Twitter user, Tom Barrett is weaving his magic again. This time, after getting educators to collaborate on ways in which Interactive Whiteboards, Google Earth, Google Docs, and Pocket Video Cameras can be used in education he’s turned his (and his network’s) sights on Twitter:
I got involved straight away – in fact mine’s the first tip on there! Get involved by contacting Tom (@tombarrett) 🙂
My school’s Special Educational Needs department asked me to do an E-Learning Session just for them, as many within the department couldn’t make my lunchtime sessions for one reason or another:
One of the tools I recommended I haven’t yet done an E-Learning Staff Session on. That’s Voki – here’s a sample of what you can do:

I’ve run a session – and therefore created guides to – the other four web applications I recommend for SEN practitioners:
My Twitter network, as ever, were extremely helpful – although unfortunately I received some of the ideas after I’d finalised the resources:
I’ve been inspired by Tom Barrett‘s excellent use of Google Presentations to get educators collaborating on ways to use Google Earth and Interactive Whiteboards. Having recently purchased six Asus Eee 1000 Netbooks for my school, I thought I’d try something similar:
Whilst there have been many blog posts and wiki pages dedicated to the ways in which laptops and Netbooks can be used in a 1-to-1 environment, it’s less obvious what you can do when you only have a few in your classroom. This presentation, as an ongoing project, should hopefully remedy that!
If you’d like to collaborate, here’s what to do:
- Look at the presentation above to see what tips have already been added.
- Send a message on Twitter to @dajbelshaw, or use the contact form on this site in order to request to be added as a collaborator.
- Add a slide in a similar fashion to the ones already there, making sure you credit any Creative Commons-license images used.
- Change the number of tips now included in the presentation on the first slide, and add your name as being a collaborator.
I’m looking forward to your contributions! 😀
