                        of the presentation - HOW the material is arranged in the presentation
                        conveys a deeper aesthetic meaning in which students can learn from.
                        (e.g. Timelines)

                        Using Prezi and Notebook, I will show how the arrangement of
                        information on the screen can enhance learning and understanding in
                        a visual way, before the content is even accessed. This presentation

                                   collaboration with an application of video production and web-bases
                                   tools, the students were invited to not only learn how to apply the
                                   research process but how to effectively communicate that knowledge
                                   to their peers. In summary, they were asked to produce on online
                                   reference resource on the research process for high school students.


                                   The session will explain the video equipment, editing software,
                                   structure of the class, team assignments, wikis created, use of google
                                   docs etc. The presentation will conclude by showing excerpts from the
                                   students' videos, a reflection on the process, and refinements for
                                   future offerings.

                                   The project was designed for students in Grades 9-12 and was
                                   embedded in the Information Technology & Media Communication
                                   Course.

                      Two major reform movements have shaped late 20th century learning:
                      the “education-for-all” agenda and the “accountability” movement.
                      Today however, at a time of stagnation in assessment outcomes and
                      increased pressure for new skills to drive productivity and
                      competitiveness, we see new forces impacting our schools and
                      classrooms. This presentation will look at how the teaching and
                      assessment of 21st century skills will enable and drive change in our
                      schools from a perspective that makes them more relevant to learners,
                      more responsive to communities and more results oriented.

                      In so doing, it will ask: How is globalization impacting Asia’s economy
                      and how do education systems need to change to ensure they remain
                      responsive to community and economic needs? How can better use
                      of technology help maintain quality, access, and relevance to today’s
                      learners? What are 21st century skills , how can they be effectively
                      assessed, and what will schools need to do to keep pace? It will also
                      look at how assessment will be used by policy makers internationally
                      and across Asia to change classroom practice and drive the next
                      generation of learning: Education 3.0.

Vision
                        This presentation aims to communicate work that has been done by a
                        group of teachers from across the ESF which aims to foster
                        collaboration and connection between all the members of our
                        learning community. It is our explicit intention to ask that others from
                        Hong Kong and beyond join us in this endeavor as it grows and
                        develops.

                        In September 2009, the ESF 21st Century Learning Working Party was
                        formed to leverage interest and expertise from across our foundation
                        of schools and to foster collaboration between teachers in the
                        examination of pedagogy that supports students' educational needs.

                        We began work on a project which in September to November 2008
                        will unite students from Y6 and Y7 from schools across the ESF on an
                        inquiry guided by mentors from Y12. The aim of the project is to use
                        technology, inquiry and mentoring to support learning by students
                        and teachers with a long term aim of developing a model for learning
                        that is connected not only within schools but between schools and
                        beyond.


                        Through inquiry based learning, supported by academic mentoring,
                        and using technology to facilitate communication, our project hopes
                        to break the traditional boundaries of classroom, age and institution.
                        We are attempting to create a platform for learning where students

                      community to further their educations in a curriculum which
                      acknowledges the interconnected nature of knowledge and is driven
                      by a sense of progression and development from K-13 without
                      artificial segmentation based on school system or public

                      ideas. This a 21st Century 'flat' learning experience where adults and
                      students are learning together.
                      Participants in the Flat Classroom Workshop will join with a group of
                      main conference educators. In this session workshop teams of 3-4 will
                      'pitch' their ideas for solutions to the main theme of the 'digital divide'.
                      Educators will provide feedback with rubric-based criteria and help
                      teams work towards the next stage of project development. The pitch
                      in this session will be largely verbal with possibly some images to
                      support the argument presented.
                      The Flat Classroom Workshop will have 10 teams and therefore need a
                      minimum of 20 educators to attend this session (10 groups of 2) in
                      order to provide review.

Vision

                        Second Life is one of a number of emerging 3D online, virtual
                        communities with overall an estimated 300 million users. Each person
                        in these virtual worlds is represented by an 'avatar' that represents
                        their chosen digital persona - housewives, artists, students,
                        businessmen, architects and doctors. There are as many opportunities
                        for innovation and profit in these virtual worlds - virtual items
                        constitute a fast growing market currently estimated to be more than
                        US$1.5 billion.

                        But virtual worlds are not just about leisure or gaming. Corporations,
                        schools, universities, military, and government institutions in the US

                        and Europe have been using the 3D virtual worlds for training,
                        education, marketing and promotions. The Maldives was the first
                        country to open an embassy in Second Life. US religious organizations
                        have also begun to open virtual meeting places. Singapore is
                        reportedly using the new technology to promote its forthcoming
                        Youth Olympic Games. President Barack Obama recently broadcasted
                        his speech from Ghana into two virtual worlds to encourage live
                        discussions moderated by a panel consisting of a US ambassador, a
                        history professors and an artist.

                        applications in the business areas? What are its implications for
                        policymakers? Can it be used to enhance our public engagement
                        process, and what role can virtual worlds play in education?

Teacher               Many classrooms are equipped with a projector and, as teachers, we
Professional          often find ourselves resorting to Powerpoint presentations to present
Practice
                      information to our classes.

                      My proposal is a workshop on how to create interactive Macromedia
                      Flash animations that can present information in a more engaging
                      way. The workshop will cover how to use Flash's drawing tools, how to
                      create buttons and how to create movie clips which are activated on a
                      button press. The animations will also incorporate sounds.

                      By the end of the session, the participants should be able to create
                      simple but effective button-controlled animations.

                      No prior knowledge of Flash is necessary.

                      A small portion of Actionscript 2.0 will be introduced.

              This workshop offers a model of Collaborative Synthesis; where the
              Disposition of Collaboration and phases or Actions of Synthesis have
              been identified. Through the scaffold of this model students reflect
              upon their practice as creative collaborators, identify the subject
              content they need to acquire and establish both process and content
              learning targets.

              While drawing ideas from De Bono, corporate practice and
              educational theory the model is a ‘hands-on’ practical approach for
              use within your classroom. The model has been applied and
              developed within the Island School HK Theatre Drama Department;
              but can be applied across all subjects. The model is scalable and
              adaptable, offering a pathway to authentic and autonomous learning.

              If you enjoy the collective creation of texts, events or products as a
              means to educate your students, then this workshop will add value to
              your evolving practice. It will be an engaging practical workshop
              where you will develop your own skills as a Collaborator and a
              Reflective practitioner with a richer understanding of Synthesis.

              The workshop is not technology focussed but reference will be made
              throughout to the applications and platforms needed to deepen and
              extend learning with in this methodology.

              consultation.
              Creating specification and scope of requirement documents
              Once the consultation process has been completed the results need to
              be documented
              in a way that encapsulates and explains the needs and expectations of
              the school in a
              form that vendors can understand and respond to, and which
              ultimately, will form the
              basis of the contractual relationship with the selected vendor.

                      User training & Data Control
                      User training is essential for ensuring the success of the
                      implementation and it is
                      important to consider who should be trained and to what depth.
                      Issues related to the
                      critical areas of data privacy and data control must also be addressed
                      during this
                      phase.
                      Onward Development
                      Implementing the core system is only the start of the journey.
                      Inevitably there will be
                      many changes and enhancements required to the system and this
                      section will discuss
                      possible ways of managing this process. It is also desirable to leverage
                      the system to
                      provide other services for the school community through the ongoing
                      development of added value systems covering both academic and
                      administrative functions to the
                      benefit of students, staff and families. The process of planning, testing
                      and review
                      will be discussed.

Strand:             Authentic mathematical inquiry in primary schools is often lost due to
Shifted             curricular and assessment pressures, as well as how comfortable
Classrooms
                    teachers are with content and what they believe inquiry should look
                    like in terms of mathematical learning.
                    In order to challenge teacher’s beliefs, values and assumptions about
                    mathematical inquiry, we need to expose them to emerging
                    approaches to learning. Only by questioning existing mental models
                    of what maths might mean in the context of a knowledge-
                    sharing/knowledge-building community will we help teachers, and
                    the wider school community, to examine current practice and begin to
                    define how it might evolve to meet the learning needs of primary
                    students.

                    During this presentation I will discuss how we are infusing technology
                    into the primary maths curriculum by replacing two of the more
                    traditionally taught strands with open ended challenges using Scratch.
                    I will also share how, using a UBD framework, we have built a
                    sustainable in-house PD model for primary teachers at CIS which is
                    helping them to explore perceptions towards learning as well as
                    technology, and to shift thinking about how the role of a primary
                    teacher might look and what it may feel like in the flattening
                    classroom.

                    I will also discuss how we are implementing Scratch in the classrooms,
                    outline the obstacles we faced and the solutions we developed as well
                    as describing how the initiative has trickled down as well as up

                      the foundation required to develop effective lifelong learning.
                      In short, we're providing our students with the motivation, time, and
                      access to learn the way adults do in the real world - by independently
                      sourcing information, and crowdsourcing expert and collaborative
                      assistance. Using a host of online and human resources, the students
                      select an industry-applicable skill to develop and learn it
                      independently. The teaching staff act as project consultants and
                      conduits to industry contacts for the students.

                        to make now, in order to have students who are able to successfully
                        negotiate the future and the problems and opportunities which arise.

                        Using the findings of Pink, Canton, Friedman, Rishard and Kurzsweil
                        this workshop examines the compelling need of schools to examine
                        what they do and how they do it. This is less about learing to use
                        technology and more about framing authentic learing experiences
                        that require the use of creative thought to solve problems and think
                        critcally. The use of technology is hence contextualised as the right
                        tool for the right job - but how do we define and identify the right job?

                      result of this conference it was then taken up as the Keynote at the
                      Annual Conference of National Plus Schools in Jakarta, 2009.

                      This workshop allows time for school representatives to discuss the
                      philosophical and practical underpinnings for learning in the 21st

                      implementing Information Literacy across the curriculum

                      This workshop will illustrate how Learning Technologies are being
                      used at German Swiss International School to develop students’
                      information literacy skills. The ICT teacher and teacher librarian have
                      been working together to integrate ICTs with information literacy skills
                      on a project called ‘How Web Savvy are You?’ .

                      This is a hands on workshop where you will experience for yourself
                      how the work of Alan November can be used to teach Web Savvy
                      skills to Upper Primary students. You will see how students can
                      become skilled Web Detectives and more critical of web content, once
                      they are taught to use a wider range of information retrieval skills. We
                      will also illustrate how social bookmarking tools and Wikis can be
                      integrated to further enhance students’ information literacy skills.

                      medium to model the skills in technology that young learners need
                      throughout their educational career.

                      Using a Promethean IWB and ActivInspire Flipchart software,
                      participants will learn of one approach from the perspective of an
                      early childhood music teacher at Hong Kong International School.
                      Through exploring several units of study in music for students Pre-K
                      through Grade 2, participants of this presentation will explore
                      methods of brainstorming, assessment and reflection with young
                      students using an IWB that are applicable across all areas of study.
                      Participants will also discover potential curricular enhancements made
                      possible by the IWB using media and web-based learning material and
                      how those can be directed to early childhood learning. Finally the
                      presentation will outline how educators can begin to equip young
                      students with the first building blocks of technological understanding
                      while still allowing learning to be experiential and student directed.

                       The traditional science fair is familiar to many. It is both meaningful
                       and engaging for students, however it can also be a logistical
                       headache due to time constraints and resourcing issues. This
                       presentation will discuss how one teaching team decided to develop a
                       virtual challenge-based learning opportunity for Year 6 students as an
                       alternative to the traditional science fair. Using Ed-Blocs students
                       worked collaboratively to plan, design, build and share electronic
                       devices which might be found in “smart homes”. Working online was a
                       key element to this project as it allowed students to become familiar
                       with the materials and provided them with unlimited access to the
                       resources required. Students used VoiceThread to share information
                       about the process, products and conclusions.

                       The presentation will address how the idea for our virtual science fair
                       was conceived, implemented and assessed, as well as explaining the

                      rationale behind our decision to share the project with our community

                      we encountered as well as our troubleshooting strategies. Most
                      importantly, I will focus on the learning benefits this alternative

Leadership and
Vision                  Academic research and our own experience teach us that only with
                        guided and ongoing support will teachers learn to infuse technology
                        successfully, thus ensuring the long term sustainability of the initiative.
                        Successful technology implementations are identified by teacher
                        training that guides teachers beyond basic skills to mastery of
                        technology infusion. They also recognize that this process will take
                        years, it needs to be flexible and it will only happen with the support
                        of advocates. During this session we will present CDNIS's approach to
                        achieving the highest level of technology infusion. We will present our
                        varied models for teacher training and we will leave some time for
                        questions and answers.

                      Synopsis; Despite the popularity of computer/video games within our
                      culture, schools have been slow to utilise this medium within their
                      teaching. This may have been as a result of the negative press
                      generated by non-gaming journalism. Studies have shown that
                      gaming is now the dominant media for students over the age of 6 and
                      this demographic is becoming more widespread. However, the use of
                      games within the curriculum is sporadic and lacking consistency.

                      Kellett School has used the work of pioneers in this field, such as Derek
                      Robertson and Tim Rylands, to produce a series of modules within
                      Literacy which use computer games as a spur for writing. This seminar
                      will focus on the planning, implementation and outcomes from work
                      in the following year groups;

                      Year 1 - Moshi Monsters
                      Year 5 - Rollercoaster Tycoon

                      Teachers and students will reflect on the work undertaken and
                      examples will be available to view. Methods of assessment will also be
                      discussed and consideration given to the motivation and engagement
                      of students.

                      Future projects on games such as Guitar Hero and the "game text"
                      Inanimate Alice will also be discussed.

                      files, and grading tips. Specifically, I will share the successes and
                      complications discovered by Taipei American School (TAS) teachers
                      after their first year in a 1:1 environment. It is my hope that through
                      sharing some of our experiences with file management in the
                      classroom as a 1:1 school, that it will help other schools along this
                      exciting and worthwhile endeavor.

                      In terms of file management, we will look at ways to organize student
                      data and how our students at TAS use Allway Sync to back up. I will
                      share our protocols for backing up data and transferring data when
                      students require loaners.

                      Distributing files is essential in a laptop classroom. I will go over using
                      space on the school network, using the internet (touching on
                      copyright issues) and how TAS uses a learning management system
                      and a classroom management system to accomplish some of these
                      tasks. In terms of collecting files, I’ll share a few tricks such as setting
                      file securities, locking files, and online tools that can be used in
                      assessments.

                      For grading and returning files, I’ll share some of the lessons we’ve
                      learned that work best. We will look at inserting messages, sound files
                      and using the free portable PDF X-Change Viewer to write notes and
                      grades on PDF documents.

                      Throughout each part of the presentation, I will share our own school’s
                      experiences but also encourage dialogue from participants as I believe
                      each school has learned their own tricks of the trade and hope that
                      this will be the opportunity to share with and learn from each other.

                        are losing ground to the notion thin client, running clean, simple
                        software. What is the clue? The iPhone and the iPod Touch, which
                        have sold 37 million units in less than two years and attracted 35,000
                        apps in just nine months. And it doesn't end there. Other tech

              into their usefulness in and out of the classroom. Possible scenarios

              Administration: Using a database app to evaluate teachers in their
              classrooms. Pre-made, custom made templates can be created where
              admin can use audio, and video clips to supplement their evaluations,
              all submitted through a local phone or wireless network.

              Teachers: Creating mini-intranets/servers from iPhones, where
              syllabuses, homework assignments can be downloaded and uploaded
              directly to the iPhone and graded and evaluated on the iPhone or
              synced with a desktop. Create a Twitter account where students
              assignments are immediately posted as students enter the classroom.
              Specialized use: PE teachers can use fitness apps to track students'
              workouts.

              Students: Post blogs on the WordPress app through the iPhone,
              collobrate through Google Docs, etc. Examine the many different
              social networking applications to complete assignments. Read ebooks

                      With the rapid technological advancement in the world, educators
                      have a duty to enhance the teaching and learning in their classrooms
                      by incorporating learning technologies that not only stimulate
                      learning but also give the learner deeper cognitive connections. Many
                      schools world wide have adopted a 1:1 programme but what impact
                      has this had on learning? How do we effectively integrate a 1:1
                      programme in a mathematics classroom? How can we use the internet
                      effectively to enhance the learning of mathematics? A number of
                      problem based learning activities utilizing the 1:1 will be discussed
                      including the use of Mathematical Webquests. Mathematical
                      Webquests require higher order thinking skills and enables the learner

                      network, beefed up the infrastructure and now you want to see how
                      the technology is impacting the teaching and learning. But wait - did
                      you provide enough professional development for your teachers? For
                      many schools professional development is a missing link, the piece to
                      the puzzle that may have been forgotten when investing in a
                      technology initiative. Participants in this session will see examples of
                      how a well-crafted professional development plan helps to create a
                      learning environment where teaching and learning positively impacts

Professional
Practice              however does using an interactive whiteboard automatically change
                      your pedagogy? What might an interactive learning environment look
                      like? These questions and many others will be discussed in this
                      workshop focusing on how using an interactive whiteboard can
                      transform your pedagogy and change your classroom into a 21stC
                      collaborative learning environment.

                      This session highlights how the interactive whiteboard needs to be
                      seen as more than just inviting children up to manipulate objects in
                      lessons. Teachers need to think about making a transition from a 'chalk
                      and talk' approach of explanation by teachers and more whole class
                      teaching to group collaboration where children are actively engaging
                      in their own learning and becoming active agents: making their
                      thinking explicit, taking ownership of ideas and information and
                      modeling solutions. How pedagogies evolve in relation to the

                        identify teaching style, establishing what is truly interactive learning
                        and changing the scope of teacher control. These developments shift
                        the classroom dynamic to become a more collaborative learning
                        environment where children are challenged to engage in and direct
                        their own learning.

                        I will also discuss my own personal experiences of using an interactive
                        whiteboard in a dual language learning system. I talk about the
                        attitudinal and perceptional challenges I have encountered within the
                        wider school community and the steps still needed to fully utilize the
                        benefits of interactive learning with the interactive whiteboard.

Strand:
A focus on              Digital game-based learning is becoming a new trend for teaching and
Learning Tools
                        learning. While it has been developing in some countries for years, it is
                        still a relatively new topic in Hong Kong. With the rapid growth of
                        needs in using information technology in the classrooms and the
                        increasing popularity of digital games, this presentation aims at
                        looking into the current situation in Hong Kong.

                        Digital game-based learning has been argued to be one of the most
                        effective way for the 21st century students to learn by a lot of different
                        researchers. Teenagers, and even adults, nowadays, spend a great
                        period of time on computer and video games. Many said that their
                        kids are addicted, and this deeply affected their lives. Yet some also
                        claimed that people are actually learning different aspects of skills and
                        knowledge from digital games. Moreover, researches have shown that
                        students are more willing to learn and actually learn better with the
                        help of technology. With the relationship between digital games and
                        education getting closer and closer, yet not much have been done in
                        the local classrooms.

                        This presentation is a case study. It starts with an introduction of the
                        local situation of digital game-based learning. A survey has been
                        carried out among local students, teachers and people working in the
                        I.T. in education field on their habits and opinions of digital game-
                        based learning. It is then followed by a detailed description on the

                      process of transferring a teacher’s teaching ideas of the History subject
                      into a digital game with the help of a team of education and
                      information technology experts. The effects of different types of
                      digital educational game on different school subjects will be
                      discussed. We will also look at how the specific digital game created
                      for the History lessons was applied into the classroom. How the
                      teacher used it to teach in his class? And how the students actually
                      learnt from it? What have to be done before and after the game? At
                      the end of the presentation, there is a report showing the teacher and
                      students’ response to this digital game project. Evaluations on its
                      effects are discussed and feedbacks from the teachers and students
                      are collected.

                      Using this case study as an example, we hope to provide a general
                      picture of the process of creating a digital game and bringing it into
                      the classroom from the early stage of teacher’s realization of using
                      digital game as a teaching tool, the ideas of game creation, the
                      process of production and finally to the application of the game onto
                      the students. We seek for advices and improvements while looking for
                      a possible future of digital game-based learning in Hong Kong
                      classrooms.

Learning Tools          programme for the first time. We think we’ve done our homework, we
                        think we have everything in place. Will the programme be a success?
                        Come and find out if we are sinking or swimming. We will be only 4
                        weeks into the programme, will we be emotional wrecks, will we be
                        happy with how things are going, or will we be both?
                        King George V School is a co-educational secondary school in

                        13. In August 2009 we will provide laptops to over 200 year 8 students.
                        In this presentation we will outline the decisions we made and
                        preparations we have undertaken leading up to implementation. We
                        will discuss our choice of machine, OS, software, investment in

                        and impact of staff professional development. We will discuss the

                        had on the first few weeks of laptop use. We will share with you how
                        the first few weeks have gone at KGV, we hope it will mostly be good

Vision                by bureaucracy, we do our students a grave disservice. However, if we
                      get these initiatives right, we will have a profound impact on learning
                      for all young people - not only now, but also for a long time to come.
                      Therefore, we need to be clear about our purpose, focus, and our
                      strategy to make it happen.

                      In order to assist schools and districts in implementing 1-to-1
                      programs, the Anytime Anywhere Learning Foundation has developed
                      the 21 Steps to 21st Century Learning framework. This framework is
                      described in this workshop. This is not a mere checklist nor are these
                      steps by any means comprehensive. Rather, they are intended as
                      catalysts, as guidelines for a much larger discussion. The information
                      included here is merely a brief description, a framework, of what gets
                      covered in the actual institutes. Because each school implementation
                      varies, the steps included here are to be understood as outlines.

              information into the wiki and it can easily be edited from any
              computer with internet access. it is designed to allow people to create
              and edit web pages without any knowledge of HTML. Wikispaces
              hosts your online site and for Education it is free and without adverts.
              You can choose to have a wiki open to all, or to members only for
              editing, or just for viewing. You can collaborate, and share with
              colleagues, share with your students.

              Wikispaces are organic and grow, you as the organizer can oversee,
              and nurture your site, it can be a collaborative work of many different
              people, that contains a lot of good information, or it can be a specialist
              site of which you are the author, either way the rise of the wiki has
              turned the Internet into an easy-to-use library of reference material
              and a gallery of information.

              Through this workshop you will learn how to set up a Wikispace,
              create some pages, add content, create links and hyperactivity, and
              embed some useful widgets and resources, to create a classroom
              website and digital resources. Page layouts can be enhanced, with
              images, and buttons, add some navigation and search feature such as
              table of contents and tags make the Wikispace take on a truly
              authentic and personalized look and feel.

              Participant should bring their own laptops wherever possible.

                        you have the patience, ideas and drive. This hands-on workshop will
                        attempt to instruct teachers all they need to know to create engaging
                        interactive content with Flash.
                        You will be shown how you may take you own drawings and with a
                        few further steps in Flash you will be able to give your characters a life
                        of their own through animation using two Flash animation methods:
                        frame-by-frame and tweening.
                        Using step-by-step instructions with small tasks that build on the
                        knowledge learnt in this workshop, you will learn the key elements of
                        the Flash interface. From there, you will learn how to work with vector
                        and bitmap graphics, create symbols, modify text, add interactivity,
                        and incorporate animation, music, and sound. Also learn how to
                        export your finished projects.
                        Participants will be given online access to sample teaching programs
                        and tutorial files that they can use to complete a number of other
                        projects.
                        You don’t have to be a particularly good at drawing, as you will be
                        shown an easy method using simple shapes to build you characters.
                        So if you are really interested and want to do it, you can!

                        Target Audience: Beginners welcome, but participants should be
                        aware of the basics of Flash.

                        In an innovative demonstration of cross-curricular integration of
                        technology, sports teachers and mathematics teachers worked
                        together with the Head of Learning and Teaching Technologies at the
                        German Swiss International School (GSIS) to create an authentic
                        learning experience for students.

                        In the Sports lesson, the students were recorded during shot-put
                        practice as part of their athletics training. During the next lesson, the
                        students used Dartfish Video Analyses software (1) to quickly plot the
                        trajectory of their own individual shot-put. During the mathematics
                        lesson, the students then used Mathscad software (2) to analyse
                        certain characteristics of the shot-put event including determining the
                        optimum angle of throwing the shot-put.

                        Maths and Science teachers will leave with a basic understanding of
                        how this project worked and a list of the software and hardware tools
                        necessary to implement a similar projects.

                        subject areas as a tool for enhancing learning through visual feedback.
                        Dartfish can be applied to core subjects such as PE, Dance and Drama
                        as well as providing a powerful analysis tool for other school activities
                        such as swimming, horse riding and athletics.
                        (2) Mathcad is the leading product for calculation and design work in
                        engineering and applied mathematics. The unique Mathcad visual
                        format and scratchpad interface integrate live, standard mathematical
                        notation, text and graphs in a single worksheet - making Mathcad
                        ideal for knowledge capture, calculation reuse, and collaboration.

                        express himself or herself using the moving image (video) to make
                        statements and broadcast or publish it online for everybody to watch.
                        This means that the amount of Videos and films accessible is
                        continually growing, but the quality of most of it is poor, not to say
                        disgraceful.
                        This development has shown that it is now the time to act and realize
                        there is a need for education in the language of film, in film analysis
                        and history.
                        The aim of this workshop is to encourage teachers to start looking into
                        this subject and start using video as a tool for storytelling in the
                        classroom.
                        The workshop will not be highly technical and filled with camera terms
                        and computer stuff.
                        My experience is that many teachers are a bit afraid of starting a video
                        project in the classroom because of insufficient knowledge about how
                        to handle the camera and the editing. Well these issues are very
                        important issues when you want to tell stories using video and should

                      not be neglected, but another and not least important thing about
                      films, is the story you want to tell and this story is too often being
                      neglected because of the overall fascination of cameras, effects and
                      software, which in it self; can not tell a good story.
                      A lot of young people think that way, think they can run around with
                      the camera for ten minutes, add some music to it on the computer and
                      upload it to youtube and then it is great film art. Some teachers might
                      think it is ok, because they do not have the knowledge how to assess
                      the student’s work or even how to inspire the students how to
                      improve.
                      This workshop will give you some ideas how to start and manage a
                      video project in your class by focusing on the story to be told.
                      It will give you tools how to analyze short films and documentaries so
                      the used camera work, editing methods and the construction of the
                      story becomes visible, helping both you as a teacher and the student
                      to improve their own work.

                      Peter Woodhead left the ESF after six years as their ICT Advisor to
                      return to classroom teaching at GSIS. The examples used in this
                      workshop were developed as a result of close collaboration with
                      primary colleagues. Peter makes extensive use of a wide range of Web
                      2.0 applications as well as other free and open source solutions to
                      show how technologies can be re-purposed to enhance existing
                      schemes of work.
                      The audience for this workshop is primary ( or secondary) classroom
                      teachers who want to know more about how everyday technologies
                      can make a difference without rewriting schemes of work. Examples

                        Students are engaged in the following activities: drafting their own
                        code of ethics, daily current events debriefing, access to information,
                        research, writing, interviewing, using studio and field video recording
                        equipment, using video editing software, matching words to images,
                        creating two-minute news stories, writing and presenting editorials,
                        anchoring a school-wide broadcast, collaboration, accountability,
                        independence, teamwork, and leadership skills.

                        Our "screenagers" live and breathe digital media but, like learning to
                        write, they need to learn how to use the tools and grammar of visual
                        literacy matched to the spoken word.

                        After a brief description of the course, participants in this workshop
                        will be immersed in a hands-on exercise that will result in creating two
                        minute video reports. They will get a chance to experience what a
                        Senior English student learns and will walk away with ideas to infuse

                 The digital landscape is populated with communities and networks of
                 children and young people, who work, play and are entertained by the
                 rich offerings of the internet. Similarly, mobile phones are used to
                 connect them to their friends, enhancing and enriching their lives with
                 the ability to communicate 24/7.

                 Few adults use connected technologies in the same way or to the
                 same extent which makes the task of educating them about the risks
                 associated with technology use and misuse a challenge for school
                 communities and parents.

                 To ensure that children and young people gain the knowledge, skills
                 and values to independently make safe and responsible choices in a
                 digitally connected environment, schools are required to develop a
                 sustained awareness and education strategy that is current, authentic
                 and empowering. Listening to and engaging student voice in this
                 ongoing process has been the focus of action research, community
                 based projects and programs and groups of young people standing
                 up and speaking out.

                 This workshop will provide an opportunity to hear the student voices
                 captured on film at significant events and will showcase the practical
                 and effective strategies that have been used to engage the student
                 voice and to put into action their recommendations and contributions.

              providers such as BBC, National Geographic, CBS, HBO and many
              others.
              YouTube is a great challenge for educators all over the world. They use
              YouTube as a massive database containing educational video clips on
              many different topics.
               YouTube challenged librarians too. Academic and public libraries are
              already setting up their YouTube channels where they release videos
              promoting library resources and services. A number of academic
              libraries are already using YouTube to deliver general library
              instructions and specific information literacy skills to university
              students. Big public libraries are also very active in YouTube social

                      Using technology with early years students can provide many
Classrooms
                      challenges for teachers not only in the way learning is organised and
                      managed in the classroom context, but also in the ways it challenges
                      perceptions of what good practice might look like.

                      I will be sharing how I manage learning with young students and
                      discussing the challenges teachers may face in planning and infusing
                      ICT projects in a dual-language, early years learning environment. I will
                      specifically focus on stop-motion animation shorts and talk about why
                      they are a empowering literacy for early years students. I will discuss
                      the higher order processing skills the children were required to use to
                      animate their stories and look at the benefits of animation for them as
                      learners. Parents played a critical role in helping students to create the
                      animation shorts and I will discuss how I involved them, the impact it
                      had on their perceptions and beliefs about what their children are
                      capable of and how their child learns, as well as the wider effect
                      technology infusion had on other parents.

                      To conclude I will share some of the attitudinal challenges I faced in
                      developing technology infused projects in the context of the
                      immediate and wider school community.
