Student collaboration with coloured latex gloves

Written by David on May 24th, 2010.      0 comments

The video here is a prototype, but the infrastructure shown to use it is low tech and therefore accessible to schools.  Just imagine the educational collaboration possibilities with such technology.  Judging by the article this came from it might not be that far away either…

As I work in schools with a wider and wider range of teachers, my ideas for the layer cake are starting to crystalise.  I was working in a school recently and the teacher I was with had an “Aha!” moment.  She had made a pedagogical, if not that then a conceptual breakthrough about e-learning and how it might look and be delivered within the space she teaches in.  It is her quote that is the title of this post.  I am still working on the full variant of the Layer Cake post, but do not want to release it too early, until I have fully ironed out the wrinkles myself.  However, in parallel with the Layer Cake e-learning methodology that I am developing I am also developing support materials in the form of templates, resources and rubrics etc to support teachers once I am not working with them.  I shall be devoting more time to this entire endeavour in the coming days and weeks, but work is un-relenting at the moment, which is good!  It is also clear that there is a desperate need for retro fitting the new paradigm/pedagogy/methodology, call it what you will that is e-learning to good many schools and teachers alike.  All new inquiries welcome.

As July approaches and New Zealand can finally get its hands on an iPad, videos like the following allow us to plan just how we might use it.  Just think of the classroom applications too!
