Using ICT to support Teaching and Learning Workshop by Ceanlia Vermeulen Northwood High Durban Kwa-Zulu Natal South Africa St John's College, Johannesburg 5-7 July 2011 Intel ICT in the Classroom Conference, Johannesburg, South Africa
Welcome St John's College, Johannesburg 5-7 July 2011 Intel ICT in the Classroom Conference, Johannesburg, South Africa Welcome
I am Ceanlia Vermeulen (Sie-an-lie-a) If I had to summarise myself in one word it would be Bohemian: n. A person with artistic or literary interests who disregards conventional standards of behaviour.
ONE SIZE DOES NOT FIT ALL Not all the resources at this Conference will work for you. Not everyone comes to the workshops with the same classroom experiences or expectations. There isn't one perfect tool or one right way to utilize these tools in the classroom.
ONE SIZE DOES NOT FIT ALL I think it it is important to look at the usefulness of all the info for yourself before you can really think about how to bring it to your students.So, my hope is that you learn something new today and want to explore at least one of these resources. If you have any questions or comments, the wifi is on and my email is available to you.

Educators must get over the idea that technology will replace them. Any teacher that can be replaced by a computer absolutely deserves to be, because they just do not get it. Ian Jukes
Six Strategies that Most Excite and Motivate Learners
Education that takes place out of the building
Learners really want to do it and have a choice in what they pursue
Learners have an opportunity to collaborate with others
Learners produce something. There is a product and an audience beyond the teacher
Learners efforts are useful to others
Learners have an opportunity for reflection and refinement
