eVideo – My foreigner neighbour

it’s been a while since i last visited eMedia, and am glad i did, cos i chanced upon this:

the video has four parts. viewing it, you can learn about food (民以食为天!), culture, values and beliefs of the Thai 泰, Burmese 缅, Japanese 日, and Filipino 菲. Chinese subtitles’ included for this video as this is a resource for use by P5 CL teachers (:

The ICT Connection, Launched!

after near 7 months of work, from conceptualising to engaging vendor to put things together in machine-understandable language for human-comprehensible output, The ICT Connection was finally launched last week at the iCTLT 2010. let’s not think abt the work ahead for a while 😛 cos in actual fact, the real work of populating the portal with ICT lesson examples has just started. here’s the video of the launch scene, and the launch animation to mark the moment 🙂

through The ICT Connection, we hope teachers will be able to learn about ict pedagogies that can enrich and transform the learning environment of our students. teachers can also find ict lesson examples created for teachers by teachers, which integrate pedagogy and technology to cultivate self-directed (SDL) and collaborative (CoL) learners. all teachers are welcome to make use of these ideas and also share their ict-based lessons with fellow teachers.

as part of the on-going promotion of the portal, “do visit us today ;)” *hehe*

it’s feb – time to change your wallpaper

when’s the last time u changed your wallpaper? citing this para off smashingmagazine:

Desktop wallpapers can serve as an excellent source of inspiration. However, if you use some specific wallpaper for a long period of time, it becomes harder to draw inspiration out of it

Free technological resources anyone?

believed this is not the first time i’ve seen this blog but this is the first time i create a post to remind myself of it in future:
Free Technology for Teachers
if you like to use animal photos in your lessons, you can read about it here;
if you like to see more examples of educators’ blog (a major reason is you cant find much of it here), you can read about it here;
if you like to find out more about copyrights and possibly teaching your students on the topic, you can read about it here;
… the list’s non-exhaustive. i believe you’ll find most, if not all, entries useful. enjoy (:
