  1. Developing Interactive Teaching Styles using an IWB

    I think one issue that needs to be addressed in a more holistic measure is that of staff development in the application and use of ICT in the classroom. IWBs are a fantastic resource that hold a good deal of learning opportunties but only if teachers see the opportunities to use them to the fullest. Using PowerPoint defeats the idea of the IWB. Products like SMART Notes offers a way of producing higher level thinking skills and with the ability to turn the notes into HTML or pdf, the opportunity to place them on the web to download.
  2. History Curriculum Review

    Thank you Andy. By the way, what did you think to the review of the History Curriculum? Have a merry Christmas.
  3. History Curriculum Review

    Not really reprehensible - I was just clearing a point up.
  4. History Curriculum Review

    Andy, As I said earlier, I logged onto my account on this forum at Roy's House. As you are no doubt aware there is function for remembering an account on the internet - you have it on this forum so when you log back on you do not have to remember your username and password. It appears that Roy used my account to post. My only wish was that it was made clear that Roy Huggins made the earlier comments and not me. I agree it is a confusing saga but hopefully it is somewhat explained. I imagine Roy realised he could post without having an account and did so. Now all that I ask is that the issue is dropped. Merry Christmas.
  5. History Curriculum Review

    Andy - sorry I will try to be clearer. 1) A while ago I worked at Roy's house and I logged onto the Edcuation Forum and read a few threads. 2) It appears over the course of the thread on the KS3 History Review, Roy accessed my account. I imagine this was based on the fact I may have forgot to click on the box saying 'remember me'. Thus he did not need to guess my password. 3) Therefore the three comments made on the thread about the History Review were not by me but rather by Roy Huggins. On at least one of the comments it is posted at the bottom as Roy. Trust me, I do not post at such early hours of the morning! 4) I admit in the past, more for joke than intent to harm I did use an alter ego. I apologised and asked for the account to be deleted. 5) My views are on the school history forum. I had no intention of getting into an arguement over this. 6) Being the season of good will I hope all your members (including the administrators) have a Merry Christmas. Neil
  6. History Curriculum Review

    Can I make one point perfectly clear. The comments posted as me where in fact by Roy Huggins. I used his home PC once to access the forum so I guess he used it to post a message or two on this forum. Please be aware of this as I do not want to have anyone thinking I am posting these comments. The reason for this is solely because I do not wish to engage in the debate. Have a merry Christmas everyone. Neil McDonald
