Resources and Ideas    from John Davitts #Freelearning Sessions in South Africa July 2011


A wonderful event with keynotes from me,  Naomi Harm (USA) & Jane Hart (UK). They were wonderful and structured with lots of links and URLSs and I was slightly off the wall so it all fitted together rather well. The real gold was buried however  in the attitude of all the teachers and workshops leaders and the organisers Janet and Gerald and Dezlin and all the others who came preparedto share and learn together.



an event characterised by wonderful infrastructure thanks to Peter at the host school St John and Maggie Verster and team managing the back channel

John's Presentation notes and links


ICT in the classroom

Lets build a  school
of our collective wisdom? 
Share a small idea/skill that has a powerful result & nmka
Ephemeral-will only last as long as today
See the group wisdom at www.bit.ly/schoolofthemoment
First iterations of new tech are usually feudal
How do you like your..
The sensory matrix 
for content & activity random


Free sound editor lets learners see their voices and music as a wave form that they can edit and multiple tracks can be recorded
You also need the lame driver a free file leame _enc.dll that lets Audacity export MP3 files

Build for the future..
no one device – organic?
ebb & flow  fonts
Every school a TV station? Lid Zone
Embrace the “age of agility” twitteresque cpd
Walk many paths even the 10 cent curriculum
Celebrate your own learning curve ?
Open the bandwidth of talents
Think broad & innovate Skype tutorial / subject tweet
Prepare for Internet of things & tablets

So…Time for.. Gov translation
Making things
Telling stories
How can new tools help us amplify, extend and share? Faultline of formal>social
Tweak our vocab of expectation
Creativity & constraint leg et al
Otherwise history will say ‘’they had what tools..they did what with them?”

Get ready for outdoor learning 
& the internet of things
