Connected 2014

Written by David on July 17th, 2014.      1 comments

I am about to set off for Hamilton, well in the morning really, for the Connected 2014 conference.  I am looking forward to presenting again.  This year I have been asked to present on my ideas for getting the most out of an iPad (or any tablet) in a literacy or numeracy tumble.  I have coined this "layering apps." In my presentation I show how it is possible to take data from any app and share it with other apps better suited to sharing and using this data for formative assessment, or for students to directly publish to their class blog or wiki.

In my second presentation I shall be tackling the increasingly thorny issue of privacy.  I shall be discussing how, I think that privacy is rapidly becoming a moral issue for schools and teachers to consider when working with students.  I shall be tackling this through the "digital rights and responsibilities" strand of digital citizenship.  It should be an interesting session and I expect to get some push back from my audience about this.  The information is uncomfortable and we, as a profession, need to think carefully about it. 

I will publish both presentations to my SlideShare account tomorrow and will embed the presentations into a blog post for others to view.
