Microsoft Education Product Center: Microsoft Office OneNote 2007

I’ve never really got in to OneNote, Microsoft’s free format note taking software. It looks fun but I’ve just not had time to really put it through its paces.

The new site from Microsoft might change that with its Teacher Toolkit containing templates and articles.

Try it and let me know how it goes in the comments. You might even convert me.

HND Computer Games Development

Image via Wikipedia SQA Computing blog: HND Computer Games Development

Just back and straight in to the swing of things. Tuesday involved a trip to Edinburgh to talk about the proposed HND in Computer Games to supplement the HNC. The day went well and things look positive for the development.

I must be getting old as, instead of pushing for the latest up to date gadgetry to be involved in the new award, my input seemed focussed more on what’s good for the learner and for the centres.

Bottom line I think we need to ensure that we have as much cross award compatibility as possible enabling the students to switch to another award such as Software Development or Technical Support, and to allow the centres to in-fill classes to make them viable.

We’ll see what happens over the next eighteen months or so.

It’s definitely a well worn complaint. “Computers are sooo booooriiiing.” Except the students complaining spend half their lives on FaceTube and MyBook. So, what’s the problem? Is:

  • the subject dull
  • the teaching worse
  • the students useless

My previous blog, Creating e-Learning, had reached a natural conclusion I think. While it started being devoted solely to e-learning and branched out into e-assessment it has evolved into a smorgasbord of education links, useful software and general outpourings covering my work with Ayr College, the Scottish Qualifications Authority and the Scottish Further Education Unit.

It has made sense, therefore, to spin off my blog and rename it. The original blog still exists, and might even see some updates, but my main blog efforts will be here from now on.

Hope you stay with me.

Tony
