When making use of this presentation as a CPD resource you may wish to consider the following reflective questions How can you cluster experiences and outcomes into meaningful groupings to provide appropriate and exciting contexts for learning? How are you providing opportunities to allow for breadth, challenge and application in the learning experiences? What range of learning activities could you use more effectively to help to develop young peoples problem solving and higher order thinking skills? How have you provided opportunity for personalisation and choice in your lesson planning? What types of evidence can you gather to support learning? Points to consider have been included in speaker notes for personal reflection.

Podcasts are downloaded from the internet for people to listen to on their computers, mp3 players or iPods. It is said that the word podcast comes from broadcast + iPod = podcast. However, a backronym has been formed where podcast stands for 'Personal On Demand broadCAST. You can download podcasts for free via iTunes or many radio stations and musicians websites.

Why do you want your pupils to podcast? Where do you see it taking them? enterprising skills creativity technological awareness communication skills language skills: talking and listening, writing teamwork confidence motivation and enjoyment independence 'Kidcast: Creative Podcasting Activities, Strategies and Ideas' by Dan Schmidt Rationale for podcasting
80:20 ratio of content to production 80% of a podcasters time, resources and energy should be focused on research, organisation, analysis and articulation of the shows content. 20% should be reserved for the actual recording, editing and post production activities. This helps to eliminate the razzle dazzle syndrome. 'Kidcast: Creative Podcasting Activities, Strategies and Ideas' by Dan Schmidt Planning a Podcast

225 pupils Covering 2 islands Over 2 hours ferry journey from the mainland
Unable to attract a computing teacher Looked at alternative ways of working Realised that most skills could be delivered with the context of subjects Word processing in business education Introduce programming in technology Use spreadsheets in science Video and audio in English and PE Wikis and blogs anywhere Computer graphics in art and technology
Worked with pupils from Georgia, USA, and the International School in Valencia. https://islaymonroe.wikispaces.com/
