I love evidence based interventions. In fact if I am arguing with my girlfriend about something other than the washing up, one of the first things I do is ask, what’s the evidence for that? (Which I am sure makes me an absolute joy to live with).
About a month ago, I attended BETT, the biggest Ed-tech fair in the UK.
Across the two floors of London Olympia companies – large and small(ish) were displaying their newest products for all to see. It was really interesting to see how technologies were being used to display curriculum materials – the most innovative example being what looked like a rapid expansion in 3D projection, alongside increases in content for ipads/tablets.
Certainly I think there’s great scope in some of this content development stuff – one example I particularly like, is the use of map data to create history resources which layer time periods over the top of the map (although I didn’t see anything like this at BETT). more >
