JenICT is one of the general capabilities in the Learning across the Curriculum content in the new syllabuses. It is hoped that by more closely embedding ICT in these new syllabuses, it will more closely align to meeting the learning needs and enhance the learning outcomes of 21st students today. The 19th Century assessment statement, for me, stands as is! Now all we need to do is work on assessment…
Jen21st Century technology will not by itself miraculously transformlearning and teaching!It’s teachers that make the difference!
BelindaLove this – printed in the classroom for inspiration for myself and the students – reminder about the value of the tool the students are using -
BelindaIntroduction of ipads – is it all about the apps – what is it you actually want to do?Example: SlideShark – needed an app for presentingInstead of looking at the apps in front of you – what do you actually want to do?
BelindaTPACK – Technology Pedagogy Content and Knowledge.Need all of the together for effectively with technology.
Belinda:I use this to remind me whether the ICT activity I am doing with the students is the best activity – or is it worth doing at all.Substitution: Word processor replacing the typewriter – no cut and paste, no spell checker – just substitutionAugmentation: cut and paste, add images, spell checkModification: Instead of the word doc – excel doc- formulas and graphs – even email it instead of printing – increases productivityRedefinition: The technology completely redesigns the task. Before the document was created by one person – now it can be worked on collaboratively by others. Google Docs – add photos, videos – on multiple devices. Total redefinition.Other examples of Redefinition are creating videos, podcasts, video conferencing.
Belinda – ICT is EVERYWHERE – don’t limit – teach year 5 movies? Really?Don’t just pick the ICT tool that you are familiar with.Professional Development Is KeyProfessional development is perhaps the single largest factor in the success or failure of the digital school.To be effective, professional development needs to include administrators and take different forms depending on the needs of the school. The focus needs to be on curriculum integration, data-driven decision making, and capacity building.
BelindaWho has used this?Seen it?Any thoughts?Negative?Do you really want to use the same format from 10 years ago?Sharing? Email versionsCollaboration – step away from individual programs
