1:1 Laptop Learning Hub

Do you have a 1:1 laptop program in your school, a bank of Netbooks that students use, or are you thinking about purchasing a set of laptops for student use? The Australian National Schools Network is starting a professional learning program in 2010 to assist teachers with the change in teaching necessary in a 1:1 classroom environment. The ANSN have been running successful Interactive Whiteboard Hubs for the last 3 years and this program builds on the successful model established in the IWB hubs. The first Hub will be held at Williamstown Primary School commencing late in term 1 with 4 days of professional learning spread over terms 1, 2 and 3. Further information can be found on the attached flyer. If you are not located close to Williamstown Primary School but have a group of at least 12 educators that would be interested then the course can be run in your local area anywhere in Australia. I can be contacted about this program is you require further information - Jill

A new IWB site - Word Magnets

Word magnet is a free tool that allows text to be entered and will automatically rearrange it. This is a useful interactive whiteboard resource or can be used for individual student use.
Word magnets will take a piece of text and break it into individual magnets which can be moved around the screen, resized, removed, colour coded, grouped, sorted and so on. New magnets can be added at any point. Simply type or paste your text into the box on the opening screen and press ‘next’.
