Transcript of ICT in teaching

Using ICT to improve your child's learning.
Why and how does the ICT in the classroom improve your child's learning?
Our classroom
By implementing ICT tools during lessons the students will be using laptops and iPads to help their research. They could create a website, make a podcast or blog each other.
Higher Order Thinking skills (HOT)
How and why does the ICTs in this unit improve your child's learning?
Some students have difficulty staying on task.
We will use ICT applications in innovative ways to keep them engaged through experimentation.
ICT enables pupils to draft or redraft their work until they are satisfied with it.
ESL students have difficulty demonstrating their knowledge through writing.
Creating a Podcast will give all students an equal opportunity to show their knowledge in a different way.

The students be using known digital resources in ways that are new to them. Making a 'Website', 'Podcast' and 'Blog' to provide a engaging challenge. The student’s have an interested in ICT so I have planned the lessons to support this using digital applications (Apps)
Reason one - ICT can help students who have difficulty concentrating and staying on task.
Reason two - Students have different learning styles.
Most students are kinesthetic/visual learners but some students are auditory learners. (Webpage and podcast)
Reason two - ICT help to show learning in different ways.
Using ICT to improve spelling,
grammar and punctuation.
Why will ICT help our students?
The following video is from another educator who explains how she used a podcast to enhance students in learning.
Gunther Kress (2004) states that multi-modality "deals with all the means we have for making meanings--the modes of representation--and considers their specific way of configuring the world." Teaching through differentiation.
Traditional forms of assessment such as, writing, does not always cater towards the learning styles of all students. A podcast provides another platform for students to demonstrate and share their knowledge.
Blogging also has the flexibility to be used at home available 24/7
It can be used as parent, teacher communication tool
Student drafts can receive timely feedback online
Baker and Moore (2008) state that when student's blog they develop a clearer understanding of sentence structure with using repetitive words and read words with known spelling patterns. This will help them to recognize common words and to read on sight. They will also use correct spelling.
Blogging to improve on their spelling, grammar and punctuation.
Learning through practicing.
Students will develop online communication skills and social skills.
Learning with others making the Podcast together.
The following video supports the idea that blogging improves student spelling, grammar and punctuation.
My Goal
Networking connects students to the world of data instantly.

Would you like to see more about Podcasting? another video:
We are a year 6 class in an inner city school. Some of our digital resources include 8 iPads, an interactive white board, cameras, computers and networking technology. Within our classroom there are 15 boys and 10 girls, many of our students have English as a second language (ESL). There are three students with special needs. The students all have an interest in digital technology.
Like to see more reasons:
ICT puts your child in control of their learning, enabling them to personalize, select and create

Creating their own website and Podcast to show their understanding of set topics.
Using ICT will provide a high quality of presentation.
Blogging helps your child to reflect on their experience and share ideas.
ICT will enhance and promote their higher order thinking skills. (Blooms taxonomy)
Learning at their own pace.
Investigate and weigh up the evidence using a wide range of information available

The Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) is an independent authority that aims to improve the learning of all young Australians.

The ICT capability supports and enhances student learning across all areas of the curriculum. Students develop and apply ICT knowledge, skills and appropriate social and ethical protocols and practices to investigate, create and communicate, as well as developing their ability to manage and operate ICT to meet their learning needs.
We are guided with what we need to teach to your child
ICT help develop problem solving
What the evidence states about HOT
Sims, M. (2014). Using iPad Apps to Engage Students in Critical Thinking and Problem Solving, Communication, Collaboration, Creativity and Innovation. In M. Searson & M. Ochoa (Eds.), Proceedings of Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education International Conference 2014 (pp. 1871-1872). Chesapeake, VA: Association for the Advancement of Computing in Education (AACE).
How will I promote these skills?
ICT will enhance students learning in the classroom through hands-on engagement
ICT used as a reward system.
ICT will promote their creativity.
ICT will make their learning more meaningful and personal.
Through support and guidance
States that; Twenty-first century students need to develop skills in critical thinking and problem solving, communication, collaboration, and creativity and innovation in order to compete in the new global community. There is a multitude of iPad apps that can help students develop these skills as they develop content knowledge. IPads can be tools that engage students as they develop essential learning skills and knowledge's.
Blogging is one way to provide an opportunity for students to develop online communication and social skills as students are interacting with each other and building a community of learning.
Reason three - ICT help students to communicate and grow social awareness skills
Blogging in the classroom is a great resource for students to reflect and see another point of view.
Terry Freedman, an Educational ICT consultant states; schools have a duty of care to ensure that pupils understand issues such as keeping safe online, protecting their identity, recognizing good and misleading information sources on the internet.
Your child is important to me. My aim is to assist their learning as best as possible and expose them to future technologies that will transform their learning.
I would like to hear your thoughts. Please feel free to talk to me about any questions or comments you might have
