London CLC podcast episode 11: Creative uses of technology for home learning

Show notes

How are schools using technology in creative and innovative ways to stay connected to children and parents? In this podcast, recorded at the 2020 EdTechX Summit, London Connected Learning Centre’s Caitlin McMillan talks to a head and a teacher from two London primaries about how they are maintaining a sense of belonging and teacher presence during lockdown. Ideas shared range from responding to the register with an emoji and five-minute tours of Peru to phonics tasks and dance routines from a class puppet called Chocolate Chocolate Button!
