BBC Column: On holiday and online

BBC Summer Comment
Originally uploaded by Edublogger

The latest instalment of my column at BBC Scotland's Learning portal has been published on a rather funky looking redesigned page.

It brings together just a few of the conclusions from what amounts to the first UK-based research on how young people and the general population use the net. Feel free to jump over and give your perspective on whether the research plays out in reality, as hundreds of thousands of Scottish school kids jump online more often than normal in a typical Scottish summer.

Module Masterclass

Do you worry that your school or district could better harness its people, digital technology or physical space? Do you want some actionable inspiration, a mentor for a learning journey with your staff?

In a keynote or masterclass we can give them concrete ideas based on experience, enthusiasm fired by a vision of what can be, and backup before and after to make it happen for them.
