Case Studies and Seminar Materials
There are currently over 170 MirandaNet Case Studies available from our E-Journals, covering numerous topics to do with the use of ICT in teaching and learning. Some of our seminars have given rise to useful materials which can also be accessed on this website, and our MirandaMods are also producing some fascinating materials.
We also have a link to the MirandaNet Web Links Archive: this was once a very useful and comprehensive body of 'approved' web links, together with our monthly recommended sites, and our once prestigious MirandaRose awards. The advent of powerful search engines embedded into the browser has probably made most of that resource redundant, and it has not been updated for some years. However, we still get requests for updates, so if anyone is willing...
We welcome offerings from other schools.
