Welcome to the core of what IT elementary school is, and aspires to be; a safe and supportive place where you can learn.
Your personal learning journey may be about acquiring specific knowledge or new skills, or it might be a desire for greater awareness of broad IT and Digital themes, technologies, and industry news. Whether you are looking for a simple definition, a ‘how to’ guide, a confidence boost, or deeper multi-media learning, this is the place to become more connected and tech smarter!
A little bit of history …
This website started its life in 2015 as a Tech blog, evolving to include bite-sized modules (IT elements), and a glossary of IT terms. That was, and is, phase 1 – available now as a searchable repository of free learning material and insights.
(Ed. You can find out bit more about the background and origin story behind the school here)
… and where we are going
With the official launch of IT elementary school in early 2021 and a round of fund-raising we will embark on an ambitious programme of acquiring and producing new services, features, and content. Let me digress, content, is an IT/web term for all the valuable stuff online, the words, pictures, videos, apps, games etc. etc.
As mentioned above, our ‘day 1’ content comprises these types:
And coming down the track, subject to planning (product road map), resourcing, and a few other factors:
- Social Media integration
- Micro-blog posts
- News items
- School plan (Curriculum), containing Rooms
- Rooms (Syllabus/Course indexes) containing Modules
- Modules (Topic/Lesson) including Sub-Lessons
- Lesson plan
- Sub-lessons (learning objectives)
- Video lesson
- Animated lesson
- Audio lesson/podcast
- Branded merchandise
- (Personal Learning objectives – what do you ‘need’ or ‘want’ to know about, or maybe you would like some suggestions?)
- (Personal education framework template – ‘Your Course’ a personalised pathway)
So, busy and exciting times! We’re looking forward to working with you to make tech easier for everyone.
