After pondering over all the information that has bombarded my brain over the last few weeks I felt a bit perplexed when contemplating the upcoming ICT assignment. The question which is at the forefront of my thinking, “Is ICT really that hard to embed into a everyday classroom where students actually interact with the ICT component?” To my dismayed the answer was yes. So I set off in order to locate information that would help misspell my fears and stumbled upon this fascinating article Understanding the relationship between ICT and education means exploring innovation and change. Whilst the paper was written in 2006 the thoughts and ideas are still valid for today.
Terry Freedman writes a great read especially on the Do’s and Don’ts of ICT in the classroom.
Jacinta shared one of David’s video which is wonderful to see how ICT is actually being used within the classroom.
