John Johnston

I am a primary school teacher turned ICT staff Development Officer in North Lanarkshire. I am currently seconded to work as a Product Owner for Glow where I mostly work on the Blog team.

I've pioneered using web technology in the classroom, in particular blogging and podcasting. I've experience of using digital and mobile technology inside and outside the classroom.

I enjoy digital technology and mixing them up in creative ways for fun and learning.

I am interested in projects that involve learning and collaboration in online spaces.

I've blogged at John's World Wide Wall Display since 2005, mostly about ICT in the classroom.

I also blog at my “106 drop in” about digital storytelling and experiments in mashing up digital media.

Along with David Noble I run EDUtalk an open to anyone podcast and Internet Radio Station about all aspects of Education.

I helped Robert Jones develop ScotEduBlogs and now run that service, if you are a Scottish EduBlogger you are welcome to join in.

I've made some web tools the most useful is a Simple FlickrCC Search, and various mashups the strangest recently being Gif the Dub.

I've a presence on various online places including.

Instagram, I love the don't think aspect of instagram.
Photos, mostly of hills and burns taken on walks, a fair number of daily creates for DS106.
Pinboard is where I keep links, a great service.
Videos, mostly screencasts.
More Videos, somewhat dafter than the vimeo ones.
Linkedin Profile.
A Tumblr full of gifs I've made.
