Yesterday myself and Ray Chambers an ICT teacher at Lodge Park Technology College did two school showcase presentations at the conference. We had a really great attendance to both sessions and also received some excellent feedback on the work that our students were doing.
The presentation centred around games based learning looking specifically at two projects one called Games Based Blogging and the other focusing on the use of Kinect in the classroom.
During the presentation we got some of the audience playing with the Kinect and also connected to Year 8 students and James Edwards an ICT teacher at Saltash.net.
One of the main reasons for the partnership and projects between the two schools has been the connection through Microsoft’s Partners in Learning Network. If you or your school hasn’t signed up yet to the free community then please do.
