Teachers – Leave those phones alone!

Talk about a catchy waffle post to get your attention! It is, of course, a Pink Floyd reference to another brick in the wall – not that I was or ever will be a Pink Floyd fan but I am a fan of technology and there has been a topic which I have been wanting to write a waffle about for some time but have never felt I knew how to phrase/write it. Well, today I have decided to bite the proverbial bullet and write it – should learners use their mobile phones within sessions…

50 Degrees of Videoing Success?

In my current mathematics module, I am trying to engage with a different aspect/type of technology within each session. This week’s learning was centred around working mathematically so it seemed to be a perfect opportunity to use demonstrate the use of videoing as a form of recording. So armed with the TEL’s Ipads, I ventured forth with the red record button at the ready…I wasn’t expecting what happened next…

Mathematics and Selfie Stick

I often like to get give you an insight into the activities I complete within my mathematics sessions. This week we were exploring the aims of the National Curriculum by experiencing an activity that involved creating a life size model of the Big Friendly Giant (BFG) from a replica of his hand. The activity involved a lot of measuring, cooperation and problem solving. I, of course, captured everything with my camera and new selfie stick! You can see the finished products on the Wilson Waffling Facebook Page – don’t forget to give it a ‘like’. Just so you know, some groups deviated from the BFG but still made something fantastic!
