Guest post by Clint Bullock. Clint is an English teachers at Gilroy Santa Maria College in Townsville, Queensland.
We hear a lot about the SAMR model, which analyses how you actually use technology. At Gilroy Santa Maria College near Townsville, we’ve started using Office Mix, to turn PowerPoint presentations into highly interactive learning tools. Without realising it, we’ve positioned ourselves at the advanced end of that model: using Mix to ‘Modify’ how we teach, and then ‘Redefine’ what’s possible. This has transformed how I teach complex English texts.… Visit the author's original post
It is amazing!

Their literature project has been selected as one of the most innovative projects in France! You can read it here (in French).
I will represent them on Friday 26 and Saturday 27, November 2016.
This article explains what this forum is about.
My interest in writing books developed around the same time I developed an interest in reading them. As a child, few things interested me less than reading. But around the time I started 7th grade, a few unrelated events happened to change my mind and to begin shaping me into the person I am today.
First, one of my friends started reading Stephen King books.… Visit the author's original post
Thank you so much Erin!

Thanks so much for hosting me today, Marie!!
Things I Didn’t Know About Being A Writer
I think most new writers start out a bit naïve about the process. When you look around, books just seem to sell. A big named author releases a new novel, and BOOM, it’s a bestseller. No one ever mentions all the behind-the-scenes mayhem that contributes to that bestseller or how many rejections that person received before he or she hit it big.… Visit the author's original post

She will be the first guest speaker and author to discuss her work with my students on October 13, 2016, at Lycée International Nelson Mandela, Nantes, France.
Here are the Project Padlet and the presentation slides I will use to study the excerpt from her novella.

The idea of flipped learning has been around for almost 10 years, however the skills and technology challenges were always too great to make it a practical proposition for most schools. But this is no longer the case! Today, teachers all around the world are using tools like Office Mix to deliver flipped learning as part of a STEM approach.
Flipped + STEM = Too Hard
In theory, the flipped approach is a great way to facilitate STEM learning. If a student can absorb the vital facts of a topic via digital content outside the classroom, then teaching time becomes much more powerful.… Visit the author's original post

Moving your curriculum to OneNote Class Notebook is one thing but seeing the results in the classroom is quite another. At St Helena Secondary College in Melbourne, our ICT faculty had a strategy: instead of educating teachers in all the features of Class Notebook, we simply moved our professional development program onto it — after 12 months, the results were dramatic!
The challenge: Too much time spent creating Notebooks
Four years ago, we took a leap at St Helena and became one of the first schools in Melbourne, Victoria to transfer our entire curriculum onto OneNote.… Visit the author's original post
Technology is often hard to implement in Primary Years. The touch screen, drag and drop device wave has catered for technology integration in our young students, but they need to be able to use a more productive ecosystem of hardware, operating systems and apps as their work gets more sophisticated. There is evidence that a reliance on easy-to-use touch screen devices, as opposed to those with keyboards, can be detrimental to a child’s development.… Visit the author's original post

One American OIB student has won a creative writing prize, the second Paper Planes Poetry prize! Congratulations Charlotte!!!!!!
I am very proud of you!
Here is her poem:
Devour the pages
Fly through the words
Such as the most graceful of birds
Devour the pages
Pursuing the path of all sages
Immerse in a different universe
Beware, it can be diverse
From utopian to perverse
Dispel any type of limit
The spectacle of a race of dreams
Glorious and wild like the fiercest of
streams Convoluted schemes, reaching the extremes
Following a fluke, they split!… Visit the author's original post
La innovación en el ámbito educativo no se puede limitar a introducir las TIC para que el alumnado utilice alguna presentación digital creada por un profesor. Si queremos ir un paso más allá, debemos dejar de favorecer el aprendizaje pasivo. El alumno tiene que dejar de ser copiloto, para ser el conductor y coger las riendas de su aprendizaje.
Tradicionalmente, cuando un alumno no sabía algo, preguntaba a sus padres y/o maestros. Sin embargo, actualmente les resulta mucho más rápido y fácil echar mano de su teléfono móvil y buscar en internet.… Visit the author's original post
In Part 1 of Flipping the Classroom with Office Mix, we explained how Office Mix allows teachers of all abilities deliver interactive learning artefacts that students can watch away from the classroom, so that the contact time is spent supporting students in the application of knowledge or creation process. Flipping the classroom or flipped learning, using Office Mix, is a process that we can all do because it is so easy and very familiar. Office Mix is a PowerPoint add-in, and you can convert your existing PowerPoint decks by adding multimedia and interactive apps.… Visit the author's original post
The concept of flipped learning and “flipping the classroom” is nothing new, however developing engaging, dynamic content simply has never been easier. One tool that has enabled the simple creation of rich flipped learning content is Office Mix. We’ve covered Office Mix many times before on this blog but over the next three posts, we hope to show how you can start flipping the classroom and creating rich, engaging learning resources for next year.
In the coming week, we will post a series of ideas and uses for integrating new technology into your classes for 2016.… Visit the author's original post
