With the huge amount of information, opinion and ideas available online, teachers need to have a space to collect and curate digital resources. A group of our primary school teachers recently spent an afternoon learning how to use Flipboard for their professional learning. This digital curation tool provides users with an opportunity not only to discover interesting and useful articles but also to publish their own digital magazines which can be continually updated.
The teachers were encouraged to use Flipboard as a regular part of their professional learning and to consider publishing their own magazines and sharing these with their colleagues. Through lots of laughter and playing with the options available, those at the workshop discovered new opportunities for sharing and learning.
Professional learning and upskilling of digital competencies is core to our practice. Flipboard has given our teachers yet another arrow in their digital quiver.
