Strategies for implementing ICT in the Classroom. th Cl In School Innovation: P th I S h lI ti Pathway t the K to th Knowledge l d Society there is an unequivocal statement of what teachers have to do: “The integration of I.C.T. into all major social institutions and organisations means that the necessity to equip young people with the capacity to understand and utilise the potential of such environments is no longer an option, but is now an imperative.” p (Cuttance, 2001:73)

  51. 51. Blogs in your subject area • People with a passion for the subject • Organisations with relevant blogs • Photo blogs • Thematic blogs – Katina • Dedicated Professional subject blogs
  52. 52. Using Blogs in Education Web logs are i W bl increasingly b i i l being used i d in educational setting. Educators are able update content more easily and share resources with in and between schools and universities. Blogging has a number of potential and real uses in education. Specifically the one that stands out for me is its use in logging journal posts for major ongoing units of work and p j projects. It means a student, p , peers and teachers can read what is going on and can make relevant and helpful comments.
  53. 53. General Applications post short current events articles to invite students thoughts reactions and possible solutions thoughts, reactions, create a literature circle post photos and ask students to create captions foster book discussions in the form of an online book club encourage student writing to demonstrate learning direct students to curriculum web sites and have them read and make responses communicate with another classroom react to teacher entries about what they are learning and make connections to how this learning is relevant for them post quotes and have students write their interpretation and apply it to something in their life invite one student a day to post a summary of and their reflections on the day's learning observe the growth of plants or animals or keep records of science experiments spot and record student kindnesses or good deeds develop new vocabulary by writing about the new word and having students create sentences or a brief paragraph using new vocabulary enable students to post their ideas for the classroom or school let student write short reviews of books they are enjoying reading
  54. 54. Specific Applications A Firstly, Firstly teachers could look at content based blogs based on syllabus requirements. A summary of the weeks or term’s curriculum could be posted for students and other teachers in a department. It can be used to monitor homework assignments p g and thus potentially included parental observation of the work and reward students for their effort by public comment supporting good work on a blog. Secondly, a reflective journal type blog could be found and used by teachers. It can possibly be used for registration and accreditation requirements It will be very useful for teachers to requirements. share teaching activities, develop ideas for the integration of ICT, it could provide tips for new teachers and provide evaluation of what has worked and not worked in the classroom or for the overall department.
  55. 55. Specific Applications B Thirdly, Thirdly students can find and create their own individual blogs. Personally I think they are great because it helps students put their ideas down and this helps the process and think about what they write. In p y particular they can do their assignments, y g , develop a portfolio of their work through out a defined period. It can be a showpiece of their good work. Fourthly, you can develop a find and create a shared blog where all the students in the class can contribute to a blog, perhaps based on a theme a novel, play, historical event or geographical theme. theme This would be very useful for class tasks which require students to complete class tasks in small groups, showcase finish products and teachers will be able to read monitor and comment on progress. p g

  66. 66. Style considerations A reflective blog with your personal teaching experiences, with ideas of your favourite teaching techniques and links to favourite sites and learning resources. The naming of your blog is important because a good name can be found through search engines. You should develop a name that reflects what is in the bl blog. Specific Content how you will organize information, how much information you should include and an overall view and long term plan of where the blog is going. Realize you have an audience. So think about your readership: their age, gender, interests, professional understanding. Accordingly be aware of your own writing voice and writing style.

  68. 68. The integration potential I have been involved, at th grass root l h b i l d t the t level, i d l in developing l i a blogging network for runners through We W now have a community of over 50 runners who bl h it f h blog about running The blogs are also linked to an online forum where there is more immediate conversations about issues and if we want “just in time” contact we use the group’s chat facility. Information is available on the relevant WIKI: eg: library, g y podcasts and the Australian run Guide. We can keep track of blogs that have been updated by using a RSSfeeders such as Bloglines more on this later. g g
