Speaker: Joe Dale/

Title: New Tools, New Opportunities, Personal Learning Networks

In his talk, Joe emphasized a huge cultural shift among young people. Nowadays they prefer social media to TV. Joe said, ‘When we go through websites all the information comes back to us, so we need to organise our PLN’. He recommended for this. Then he shared some URLs such as , a newspaper updated daily with a curated selection of articles, blog posts, videos and photos.  Another site he recommended was which you can find tried and tested Internet tools for classrooms. You can also find tools and tutorials for digital storytelling on

The most interesting part of  Joe’s presentation was the ‘QR Codes in Education.’ Hidden messages can be revealed when students scan the codes by their smart phones.
