iBook Launch

I had a great day at Moorooka State School. Launched two of my iBooks - 'Petal' and 'Draco' which are fixed layout children's picture books featuring Australian backyard animals.  Met Craig Kerwin - principal, slide2learn member and fellow iBook author and read my iBooks to all student from prep to year 7. Students seemed to enjoy the stories.

The excitement is palpable!

Hi All,

Our third major Slide2Learn event is less than 2 weeks away and the excitement on the part of the S2L team is palpable.  Dozens of emails, tweets and messages are going back and forward each day as we settle the details of this huge event.  

This year we have another wonderful venue in Albert Park College, another incredible group of inspiring keynote speakers and the pleasure of Tony Vincent all the way from across the pond (US) and in person again.  We…

First iBook with iBooks Author

Feeling pretty good ... dusted off an old kids book I wrote about the family dog, republished it using iBooks Author - was actually pretty easy to do (very much like Keynote). Only tricky part was creating an AppleID separate to my regular one for publishing - but got that done.

iBooks Author more-or-less takes control of the publishing aspect and now it's sitting in iBooks for review. Keep an eye out for "Ohh Scruff" - it's certainly not a masterpiece by any means ... just wanted to…

The Easy Assessment App

Given teachers are moving in waves towards mobile tools, I thought i would put together an app to assist with capturing learning.

The app allows teachers to not only develop  rubrics for assessment, but it makes use of the camera so that teachers can capture learning and make their subsequent assessments. The results and media from the assessments can then be automatically synced to a your dropbox account or email.

Check out…

Adonit Jot-Pro stylus review

By Jonathan Nalder | Teacher | Mobile Learning Project Officer | Apple Distinguished Educator | Twitter: @jnxyz



For touchscreen use where fine control is required, fingers and even traditional ‘rubber-tipped’ styli can do an ok job, but the fact that you can’t see the exact touch point often creates problems.…

Post-PC era Phase 2: The acceptance of ‘Appliance Computing’

Post-PC era Phase 2: The acceptance of ‘Appliance Computing’


I hold very strongly to the idea that there are two ‘tablet device’ markets - the first is the much older ‘slate PC’ one that saw PCs and laptops gain expensive convertible options around 2003. These slate PCs are still around today and provide a reasonable compromise between a full PC and touchscreen device, but generally come with a higher price. One still has to know how to…

iPad or Macbook for my school?

I seem to be having this conversation a lot recently with colleagues from different schools here in W.A.


I am a big fan of the OS X platform in education, but I have gradually been coming round to the iPad and we are now considering a large deployment at my school. I put my thoughts into text on my blog and would like to share them with you;

An IT Managers view: Redlands College iPad Programme

Hi All,


I have seen some of the replies that Dales post has raised, and I thought I might answer some of them as they have to do with the device implementation.


As Dale mentioned, we have over 410 College owned iPads, as well as around another 20 privately owned devices. Next year, this is set to expand further. At present the exact number has not been decided, but is likely to include years 9 through to year 12.

Students putting passwords on ipods

We have class sets of Ipods but have had students put on passwords which then becomes a pain for the next class. Has anyone got any ideas how to disable the password so students cannot put a password on the ipod. Or any suggestions on how other people are getting around this problem.
