This is 21st century teaching

EdTech Mixed Plate has a number of videos on YouTube where practising teachers join together to discuss ICT in the classroom. This is what we can do now as teachers. We can join together online and discuss things which are important in a classroom and how we develop and pioneer technology input – or anything else for that matter.The videos are professional development for the teachers participating but they are also professional development for anyone watching. The episode I am using today is on Minecraft in the classroom because Minecraft is gaining traction in classroom use. EdTech Mixed Plate discusses a range of topics and it is interesting to see how the teachers have become involved in edtech and mostly the co ordinator for edtech in their school. Worth a look because I am pretty sure this is the future and now such a gift to us in terms of professional development. Technology is offering us all sorts of possibilities . We are waiting for bandwidth so we can implement these opportunities more effectively.

#aussieED touted itself at one stage as being the best PD in PJs. It wasn’t wrong. If you are on Twitter you can follow the #aussieED hashtag at any time and gain a wealth of interesting education ideas and information. At 8pm Adelaide, South Australian time you can join in the online chat. It includes Australian teachers but there are also teachers from all over the world. It creates an intense feedback loop and for the whole time you are on there you become a contributor, a sharer and someone who offers feedback. Each week there is a different educational topic and the thoughts and ideas come thick and fast. It means you test out your classroom practice, your theory , your knowledge and you feed that all into the chat which grows exponentially as the time passes. It is half an hour of fun, fast ideas, feedback and furious writing. It is interesting, entertaining and I never fail to come away feeling like I have learnt, been exposed to a vast range of ideas and have contributed to that dynamic 30 minute thought field. It builds confidence and enthusiasm. It also connects educators in a very authentic way because they are intensely focused on their job both in practice and theory. As a form of professional development it is unique and demonstrates how powerful Twitter can be to harness ideas and competence.
