London Grid for Learning technical conference 30th June 2014 London Grid for Learning ‘Harnessing Home Technology for Learning’ Innovations : Connected Home Neil Illingworth June 2014 Advanced Technologies and Innovation Advanced Technologies and Innovation What is Innovation? Innovations are divided into two broad categories: Evolutionary innovations (continuous or dynamic evolutionary innovation) that are brought about by many incremental advances in technology or processes and revolutionary innovations (also called discontinuous innovations) which are often disruptive and new.

Issue a school SIM card or mobile device that are deactivated or channelled during school hours Webits When a pupil goes to a teacher recommended website, they receive a point. Points will be published real-time. Pupils will be motivated to keep to relevant websites. Teacher could publicise some websites, others could be hidden. More points awarded for finding the hidden sites. Schools IPTV School TV Channel showing curriculum subjects, extra lessons and study guides during exam periods A new search engine that restricts results to teacher approved websites, during homework time access to other search engines could be blocked. Learning Everywhere A Platform to deliver education anywhere Home Schooling for children on long term sickness leave, learning difficulties and exclusions Gamification of learning What do kids love? 1) Collecting things 2) A new app Linking educational collectable cards that could be related to their form topic. We could create some collectable swappable cards with Teacher input that the kids could take home as homework to learn with their parents. (Spelling or phonics cards are another option) This could be linked to an educational app that parents need to help their kids with. Keep it fun with different levels of competition for the kids.
