  • Children take to technology like fish take to water. Even as debates rage over how much technology we should let our children use, it comes down to one inescapable fact that the society of today and tomorrow is totally driven by technology. The impact of video games on children is well-researched.
    Let’s question – can we be Luddites in a world that is also tapping into children as design “partners” for innovation? Or should we embrace the best of technology and use it to strengthen their literacy and cognitive skills?
    Which are the creative technology skills we should encourage children to learn? Maybe, these five (though, feel free to suggest your own in the comments)…

More Evernote

I promised to share more about Evernote, the truly awesome free tool that you can use on any computer, tablet or smartphone to “remember everything”. Used extensively by teachers and students around the world, there are many educational applications for Evernote

This video is from Melbourne’s very own Evernote Education Ambassador, primary teacher Rebecca Spink. The video gives you an overview of some of the ways she uses Evernote both as a personal productivity assistant and in managing her classroom and students. If you are interested in making videos and wonder how she did this, I can see that the video was made using Haiku Deck and iMovie, two of the apps we have installed on our class iPads.

Bec writes extensively about using Evernote in education on her blog Miss Spink on Tech. If you are at all interested in giving Evernote a go, whether on an iPad, phone, PC or Mac I highly recommend a browse through her articles. She also curates a Flipboard magazine about Evernote in Education where you’ll find many of her blog posts plus articles from other sources.
