Information, Communication and Learning Technologies

ICLT 

"ICT in the curriculum" must not be equated to "learning about computers!

ICT can be a powerful tool in the learning process. This page contains links to explore new and emerging technologies to support and enrich classroom learning activities. 

The ICT Chase

An example of a school program where ICT has been used integrated to support curriculum outcomes, and enhance the significance of the learning environment.  
The Key Points: 
Interactivity
- effective use of ICT in the classroom makes pupils feel they are in control.  Not of classroom management, but  in terms of independent learning.  They can see the results of their actions immediately in front of them.
Suitability - see ICT as another additional tool available to you - yet an interactive and dynamic tool.   With sensible use, the educational benefits are immense.
Backup plan - always have something just in case things go wrong.  A paper based activity that can be given out.  Problems are bound to occur if you don’t!

Digital Story Telling " 2008 " May ICT@Mt Waverley Primary
The ‘Wow’ Factor! Digital Story Telling has created a revolution at our school! A rich tapestry of stories has emerged about the lives of our students. We have learnt so much more about these kids – about what is happening in their lives and what is important to them. These children have real stories to tell – how often do we give them the voice to tell their stories?

The Education Podcast Network is an effort to bring together into one place, the wide range of podcast programming that may be helpful to teachers looking for content to teach with and about, and to explore issues of teaching and learning in the 21st century.
