Paper - Non-Refereed

School leaders face a daunting task in coming to terms with the digital revolution. A large and diverse set of issues has to be dealt with. The issues are interdependent, the state of play in terms of technology and learning goals is evolving rapidly, the home-school IT interaction is complex, not to mention budget and building issues. Elaborate Strategic Planning has failed to address this task on a school-wide basis.
This empirical study examines the relationship between students overall results in Excel and their predictions of performance on specific topics in three Excel tests. The hypothesis is that very good students will have significantly more success calibrating specific topics than average and poor students. The results validate the hypothesis.
In the last few years many teachers have found themselves feeling as if they are on an island surrounded by new technologies and ideas that need to be added to their already burgeoning teaching responsibilities. This can be a confronting prospect for some and an area which needs to be addressed with careful planning and support. At Launceston Church Grammar School there has been a concerted effort to assist all teaching staff to come to grips with the changes needed for the successful integration of ICT.
What happens when you ask 120 students to tell the world about the one thing that matters most to them? You get the BPS Passion Projects. Working with Globalstudent blogs and a range of other add-ins and tools, our students asked questions, researched and presented personal anecdotes about topics as diverse as Coeliac disease, NBA, drums and computer gaming. Using the online blogging environment the 6 month long projects were largely completed as work done at home. This presentation will explore how the projects were developed, the tools used and how you can use Web 2.0 in your school.
