London Book Fair
Professor Christina Preston is speaking at the London Book Fair on April 10th in the conference What Works (you can download the conference flier). Successful Education Policies, Resources and Technologies. She will be talking about Lessons from the MirandaNet Fellowship that she founded in 1992. Her topics will be the MirandaNet heritage as well as the future of this professional organisation. A key point that she will make is about the value of the website to educators all over the world. Around 205 unique visitors visiting the site each day, each making an average of two visits and viewing an average of over 11 pages. This is an unusually high number for such a site. Some of our visitors are clicking away an extraordinary number of times. The relatively low number of hits compared to the relatively high number of pages is also evidence of the high number of pages viewed per visit: the average number of hits per visitor is around 10, whereas a single page view on MirandaNet would typically have between 20 and 30 hits. MirandaNet members are engaged in a redesign of the website. In the future they plan to post even more information from members about digital technologies in teaching and learning that will increase the readership who are keen to read the views of practitioners.

MirandaNet Fellows held a MESH event at BETT14 on 23rd January led by Professor Marilyn Leask, editor in chief of MESH guides (www.meshguides.org) and Sarah Younie, chief editor of MESH ICT. MESH is the Education Futures Collaboration Mapping Educational Specialist knowHow initiative. Marilyn is campaigning to support professional judgement with evidence just as doctors do by publishing their evidence globally. MirandaNet Fellows are embarking on a series of MESH pathways to add to the existing pathways of knowledge that make up a quality assured 'wikipedia' of professional knowledge for teaching. By attracting this kind of collaboration from educators MESH provides scalable and cost effective technology to enable educators to engage in research collaborations and publications around topics they consider will make a difference to student's learning.
This MESH event was held in partnership with British Education Suppliers Association (BESA) whose companies are looking at HandsOn as a potential tool for teacher training in their ICT products in the future.
