Visual Literacy, iPhone app, iPad resources, and Glean

Literacy and Visual Literacy in particular are key areas in the Australian Curriculum and General Capabilities.

Recently I presented about some ways to incorporate Visual Literacy with an iPad at the recent Apps Galore joint Mini-Conference (BCE and Lutheran Education).

These resources can be found here.

Additionally, the Glean website has some excellent resources to support the development of literacy skills in its various forms.

Horizon Report 2012 and a useful livebinder for teachers

The Horizon Report 2012 is out!

The NMC Horizon Report for 2013 identifies mobile devices & apps and tablet computing as technologies expected to enter mainstream use in the first horizon of one year or less.

Then within two to three year we sill be seeing Game-based learning and personal learning environments are seen in the second horizon and then augmented reality and natural user interfaces in four to five years.

This livebinder is an excellent resource for teachers to begin to understand the implications of these developments.
