you read through some of these pages some of you will probably find
something I've missed, others will know a better way to do something
I've suggested and one or two will say some if not all of it is
bunkum or words to that effect. Just bear in mind, though, that
LSDA's Q Projects only provide about £1000 at most and their
main purpose is to get people started on the road to including some
new techniques in their teaching which might help students get the
message they're trying to put across and to inspire people.
If you're like most practitioners
and IT training was long ago and took the shape of RSA CLAIT or
whatever then using images has probably been something you've never
been taught even if you've been shown where to get them in the first
Because Microsoft didn't have an easy-to-use
editor on your desktop, doing things with images other than copying
and pasting has been limited pretty much to the Art & Media
departments at work and the rest of us have been experimenting with
various bits of software coming with equipment at home. I know lots
of people in education who think about trying something in this
field and then decide not to because they're nor really sure how
it will work out, the students might laugh because they think they
know more than the tutor or there's a colleague who does that sort
of thing for them anyway.
Well, now you've got something to
look at if you need it and someone to contact if you want some help.
