MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
I am a teacher in the secondary education sector. I have been working recently with basic skills target group pupils, using a variety of ICT techniques alongside assessment for learning and literacy strategies to improve achievement amongst this target group of pupils. Having seen the value added (some of these pupils managed an increase of 3 whole grades based on their statistical targets) I would like to investigate how much further progress could be made by they development of a learning platform or VLE.
I encourage pupils within my classroom to gain experience of working with the widest variety of software I can access, and have managed to invest in new software alongside the standard applications software. I also use free software to demonstrate the differences in levels of sophistication. We create Games, and make animations, movies and web pages as well as working our way through the standard applications for the curriculum we follow.
I believe that by utilizing the widest range of media possible we may be able to further engage pupils outside of school hours, but would like to investigate this further and would be interested to know what technologies other educators use and whether they have researched its success, or feel they can gauge the impact it has had on the students.
