They may find information by extracting it from a document prepared by the teacher and made available to them via ICT, such as Microsoft Word or a Microsoft PowerPoint slideshow. They may find out information by communicating with people elsewhere by sending email to students in a different school or even in a different country. Processing knowledge - Students can use ICT as part of a creative process to consider more carefully the information which they have about a given subject. They may need to carry out calculations (e.g. by using Microsoft Excel), or to check grammar and spelling in a piece of writing (perhaps using Microsoft Word), or they may need to re-sequence a series of events (for example by re-ordering a series of Microsoft PowerPoint slides). Sharing knowledge - Students can use ICT to present their work in a highly professional format share this with other students, with their teacher, and even via email with people all around the world. Facilitating the acquisition of basic skills through drill and practice. Television programs such as Sesame Street use repetition and reinforcement to teach the alphabet, numbers, colors, shapes and other basic concepts 13
