Welcome to dakinane limited. We provide innovative PLD to schools to help them integrate technology meaningfully and effectively into their everyday class programmes. The solutions we provide are tailored individually to the school and the teacher, meeting the needs of the individual and not imposing a rigid model.
We have an extensive range of tools and resources for teachers to use. We continually explore how technology can be used to engage students with their learning. As a result of this, we curate our content in several places for you to look at.
David has an extensive range of resources for teachers at the following site. Contact David if you want more information about these resources.
David has been creating video tutorials for teachers since 2007, almost as long as YouTube has existed. On his channel, there are over 400 video tutorials for you to choose from. David suggests that you build a resource bank of just-in-time learning videos for students.
David has also created a site of essential skills for students and teachers to use. The aim of this site with its 80+ video tutorials is to provide a “Just in Time” learning resource, where students can self serve their learning in 60 seconds. Each video on the site is less than three minutes and contains just one skill. The website is broken into categories from Passwords to Google Classroom and all points in between. You can try it out, click on the image below:

I create software tutorials not for teachers to use, although they can, I make them as a just in time skills resource for students to use and for teachers to collate. My thinking around this effort is that integrating digital technology and a suite of tools into a classroom should not require teachers to become …
The phone clamp on one of my mini tripods broke this week. So as I write this post, the re-designed and hopefully stronger clamp is being printed off. With a few basic skills mastered in Fusion360 it has been easy for me to design and print the replacement part. I have been asked by a …
