  1. Would you buy the e-book although a hardcopy was available? Vote here http://bit.ly/Ebook-hardcopy ?
  2. Hi all, I urge my PGCE students to consider ways in which they can use ICT as a tool to aid the delivery of lessons, planning and engagement as well as insisting that they keep abreast of developments in ICT and your site is fantastic . Johannes
  3. Hi John, Neal Watkin and I aimed this book at teachers who are enthusiastic about using ICT but need support in doing so. However, it is not just for beginners, we have also tried to focus on some of the more advanced aspects of ICT whilst not getting bogged-down with the intricacies of the various software. We have worked hard at covering as many facets of ICT as possible to ensure that anyone would benefit from reading and working with this book. This is the reason why we deal with a range of tools such as Interactive Whiteboards, PowerPoint, Podcasting, Flash, video editing and many more.
  4. Flash as a software has developed significantly since my workshop two years ago. Not only has it been upgraded twice, Macromedia was also bought by Adobe. Flash Player is now installed on all new machines and most websites use Flash in various forms, from forms and advertising to games and educational resources. In fact, the use of flash video now appears to be industry standard and many schools, including my own and its attached Sixth Form college, have introduced courses on how to use Adobe Flash. Unfortunately since the Adobe take-over of Macromedia, the price of a site license has increase
  5. Dear all, We have just launched a new website InnovativeICT.net which accompanies our book Innovate with ICT which came out a few months ago. Both resources focus on how we can develop students skills and learning by using ICT well. We hope people find the site an interesting addition to an already popular subject Johannes Ahrenfelt and Neal Watkin

  14. Hi, I'm arriving with John and Terry via Ryanair at 18.55. Thank you for the details. Really looking forward to it
  15. Hi all, I have just launched my new website named Flasheducation.net where I aim to give teachers the opportunity to learn how to use Adobe Flash to create content for their classes without having to learn the finer points of the whole software. Each tutorial will take between 15-30 minutes to complete and will give teachers the opportunity to create specific activities which they can easily adapt. This is a site in constant development (aren't they all?) so do check back regularly for updates. I hope Flasheducation.net will encourage more teachers to use Adobe Flash. Forum members' comments
  16. I first met Richard in May 2006 when I was invited to hold a seminar in Toulouse and join as an Associate Member of E-Help. It struck me quickly that this is a man who has a real passion for History and someone who is willing to go out of his way to ensure that the project would endure and continue to be successful. The level of professionalism, organisation and enthusiasm that I experienced during those few days in May I shall never forget. A truly memorable and inspiring time. Great ideas often receive violent opposition from mediocre minds. - Einstein
  17. Thank you both for your comments. John: I agree, that would be the ideal way to move things along. There is currently discussion at my school about starting to teach children Flash from as early as 2007. That would certainly be an interesting development. I also feel that good quality INSET is needed if software such as Flash is going to take off. Although there is training available, it is either teaching you 'everything about...' or, if focused on training teachers, very limited.David: I agree. I hope to achieve this with Flasheducation so that teachers can see examples of Flash before
  18. Thank you Neal for interesting comments. This is exactly what I suggest Flash can achieve - it is not about finding solutions or using the latest software to tick boxes. It's about enhancing pedagogy by targeting the way pupils want to learn and are used to learning. It can, if used well, engage children to want to learn. I recently visited a number of schools in Shanghai were they happen to teach pupils Adobe Flash. I asked one of the teachers why she taught them Flash and why she uses Flash in the classroom and she explained that children learn much better because it reminds them of
  19. Thank you both for your comments, much appreciated. The vast majority of computers, certainly all new ones, have Shockwave flash Player installed, but that does not mean that all have. I agree, if I'm asked to install an extension of whatever kind then I usually go elsewhere. It's about conveniency and being forced to install something during your browsing is not only inconvenient but also annoying and there will be sites that do not require you to install anything. Agreed. We need to teach all children using a range of teaching styles depending on what skill you would like your class to d
  20. Using Macromedia Flash in the classroom: is it just ‘flash’ or can it be useful? My seminar is divided into four key sections: What is Flash? Why should it be used by teachers and how could we use it? Why should it, and how can it be used by pupils? What are the problems with Flash? What is Flash? It is difficult to define Adobe Flash. Doing a quick search for a definition provides us with a myriad of explanations, from very simplistic: ‘a technology that allows for animation or moving graphics on a website.’ Gravitate Design, to Adobe’s own: ‘…[the] industry's most advanced authoring
  21. My presentation will attempt to answer the question: Using Adobe Flash in the classroom: is it just ‘flash’ or can it be useful? I will divide the presentation into four parts: 1. What is Flash? 2. How can it be used by teachers? 3. How can it be used by pupils? 4. Taking it further... Johannes

  23. I am working as a history teacher and International Coordinator at Neatherd High School, a 11-18 comprehensive in a small town in the heart of Norfolk. I have been involved in various ICT workshops with history PGCE students at the University of East Anglia, focusing on making PowerPoint more engaging for students. I am hopefully leading two more workshops next academic year including one on using Macromedia Flash 8 and Captivate. Flash is a tremendous tool for creating interactive activities something which I have been doing since 2002. Some of my earlier activities can be found at my first
