There is no parallel universe. Why managing your digital footprint is an essential life skill - Rob Ellis, e-learning Consultant, ICTTALK Ltd
If there is a compelling case for ICT as the driving force of the new millennium then there is an equally compelling one for developing the social skills that go with it in particular with regard to the development of a digital footprint. At the moment we are playing catch up. The session will look for answers to four questions: • What is a digital footprint and who has one? • What makes a useful thing a problem? • So who cares anyway? • I’m safe, …aren’t I? But wasn’t it ever thus? Have we not always wanted to draw a veil over some aspects of our past? So what’s changed?
Going Google in Norfolk - Developing the use of Google Apps for Education - Jill Dunman, ICT Adviser, Norfolk Children’s Services
This session will look at how Google Apps for Education was rolled out to over 400 schools in Norfolk and how the tools are being used by staff and pupils to support learning and teaching. The Norfolk Cloud Educator Programme has been running since September 2011. It has been designed to support a group of teachers from around the county to develop their use of the wide range of tools now available in the Cloud, particularly Google Apps for Education. The main focus of the programme has been on developing and sharing outstanding practice and resources using Google Apps and developing collaborative networks within the county and beyond. Case studies from a wide range of settings will be shared, showing how Google Apps is beginning to change the practice and ethos in schools.
