[OZTL_NET] ipad use in the library during lunchtime

Without getting into the intellectual arguments I will give you my
observations. We are a 1:1 laptop school with ipads available for borrowing
at lunchtimes. Our Resource Centre is packed and buzzing at recess and
lunchtime. The students are playing games, some of them with each other in
Minecraft. They are also communicating passionately with like minded peers.
They analyse and evaluate games using appropriate terminology. As the
weather improves outside our numbers will fall as some students take to the
college oval for more active play however a core group of students will
stay and continue to be involved in this community. These are the same type
of students who before 1:1 technology would still have been in the Resource
Centre at lunchtimes as they are socially comfortable here. Without access
to technology and therefore what they are passionate about, they would have
been sitting individually quietly reading or playing the occasional chess
game. They very rarely interacted with each other. It is wonderful to see
the change since our technology was introduced and personally I think our
students are getting far more benefit from developing their social skills
than from enforced exercise which they get in sport and PE classes anyway
and is often a trial for them. While physical health is important, so is
mental health.

> Subject: [OZTL_NET] re free images and copyright
> 1. As a blogger and writer for other organisations like Scholastic, I know
> I need an image for each blog post. Mostly because of the readers brought
> to me by visual curation sites like Pinterest and Learnist.
>
> 2. As a content creator myself, I take plagiarism seriously, and want to
> be very careful to use others’  images correctly and carefully.
>
> 3. But as a person permanently in a hurry, I have found it time-consuming

> Even in Google Image Advanced Search, or CC licensed image sites, you need
> to trace images back to their source in case they have somehow been
> labelled incorrectly.
>
> 4. So I now mostly make my own images. I start with a blank canvas at
> PicMonkey or Canva, and add to it. I use the free stamps/clipart inside
> PM/Canva (Visme, Pixteller are others) and I also add my own photos or ones
> friends have given me permission to use. Occasionally I will use clip art
> from sites I tend to trust like Clker, or images from sites I tend to trust
> like Morguefile. I have never had a problem with these, but it’s always a
> risk. I also draw (that word is an exaggeration of my scrawl!) in apps like
> Paper by 53 with a stylus, convert that to a png or jpg file, and add it to
> a canvas as an overlay.
>
> I advocate for kids to make their own images where they can. It’s more
> creative, it’s fun, and they will know for sure they have permission to use
> it (so long as they understand not to take photos of people without

> 11 March 2015, 8.00 pm to 9.00 pm, Daylight Saving Time, Sydney, Australia
>
> As new learning skills emerge it is necessary for teachers to develop
> sufficient capacity to develop learning programs that will provide the
> opportunity for students to develop these critical learning skills.
> ‘Learning and Literacy for the future: Building capacity Part 2’ by June
> Wall and Karen Bonanno, published in Scan, Volume 33, Issue 4 in 2014
> considers a capacity building approach, through formal and information
> professional learning experiences, to ensure teachers develop competencies
> and capacity to help improve learning outcomes and prepare students for the
> rapidly changing world of work.
>
> A capacity building tool will be outlined and explained as a development
> tool for teachers to develop capabilities for future learning. Reflection
> and strategic visioning, that includes the development of a personal
> professional learning plan, is an integral component of the tool and will
> also be explained in this presentation.
>
> Following this webinar, participants will be able to:
> * Understand the elements of capacity building
> * Identify capacities for further individual development
> * Explore a capacity building tool for professional learning
> * Reflect on a variety of teaching strategies
>
> Eduwebinar is a BOSTES endorsed provider for this professional development

> Retech: Digital Innovation and Integration in the Classroom
> with Helen Stower and Kathryn Schravemade, Mt Alvernia College
> Curriculum Leaders - ICentre and Teacher Librarian
> 18 March 2015, 8.00 pm to 9.00 pm, Daylight Saving Time, Sydney, Australia
>
> A key goal of future proof education is to ensure students are engaging
> with information, people and technologies as ‘connected learners’ and that
> this engagement is effective, safe and ethical.
>
> In our particular school setting, it was identified that traditional ICT
> subjects focused on the development of software usage skills, which no
> longer supported the evolving needs of our students.  Instead we needed
> students to develop skills in digital citizenship so that they could
> participate effectively in an online and networked world.  Retech (Research
> and Technology) is a Middle Years learning experience that has developed in
> response to this need.
>
> This presentation will explore some of the skills taught in Retech:
> - Cybersafety & building a positive digital footprint;
> - Information literacies such as smart searching, curation, effective note
> taking, licensing and attribution;
> - Using blogs and social media for building a PLN (Personal Learning
> Network);
> - Collaboration through shared bookmarks, notes & Google Groups;
> - Inquiry and problem solving; and
> - Creating and presenting with digital tools such as video productions,
> podcasts and infographics.
>
> Participants will leave this session with:
> - An outline of the Retech model and its place within the whole school
> curriculum;
> - An overview of the content and strategies used to build robust digital
> citizens through connecting, researching, creating and collaborating;
> - Resources used with students;
> - Tools utilised and skills developed by students;
> - Resources used to engage parents; and
> - Teacher professional development offered.

> Evaluation of programs is important to ensure quality learning. Evaluation
> of the role of the school library in order to identify future development
> and strategic planning for teaching and learning from the library is
> critical for effective library services. This session will introduce a

> Participants will be able to:

> makerspace or run a one day maker faire.
> * Become acquainted with a range of popular makerspace activities and
> tools including Makey Makeys, Arduino Microcontrollers, Squishy Circuits,
> Interactive Textile and Papercraft, Lego Robotics and more.
> * Have an understanding of how makerspace activities link to the
