An introduction to Reflective Practice through Google

April 21, 2010

For anyone starting out, looking at Reflective Practice is a tricky topic to get your head around. Below is a video I made with Google Search Stories to illustrate my journey through:

This is a retrospective journey, mind. I by no way consider myself an expert on the subject of Reflective Practice, but my assignment on the subject is quite popular on YouTube 🙂


Apple Teacher Institute 2010- Cheltenham College

April 16, 2010

This year I was lucky enough to attend the Apple Teacher Institute where I engaged with 4 days of activities at Cheltenham college, all centred around using Apple creative products in Education. I met some wonderful people there, all wanting to develop their skills. There was a representative from Hull University there that offered delegates of the event the opportunity of accreditation through reflection, this was something I jumped at! Not quite the structured reflection I was used to as based on the guide, it was more like a learning log. I chose to produce it as a blog post, which can be seen at my departmental blog here.

It was a wonderful event and I strongly recommend future events to anyone looking to use technology in their teaching.
