Personal Statement

I am a class teacher at Sandaig Primary in Glasgow, Scotland.

My interest in ICT stretches back to HyperCard. I was originally interested in creating toys and tools for teachers and learners but am now more interested in using the so called Web 2.0 tools in the classroom.

I spend a fair bit of time playing with web technology, simple Flash and PHP, mashing up web services. Some of these have potential for using on the classroom, some are more useful to teachers and others are just fun.

I have organised blogging in my school for several years (www.sandaigprimary.co.uk/pivot) and produce a regular podcast with the children, Radio Sandaig. We have explored the use of video and audio as was to record and reflect on our learning.

I blog regularly about ICT in my classroom at www.sandaigprimary.co.uk/pivot/johnjohnston.php

I am interested in project based learning, the new Curriculum for Excellence that is being developed in Scotland and applying ICT to this when appropriate. I see ICT as a component of collaboration.
