technology as a tool

Technology will never replace teachers.

However, teachers who know how to use technology effectively to help their students connect and collaborate together online will replace those who do not. -Sheryl Nussbaum Beach

Let me introduce my class...

Ahhh... this is better!

Purpose know what you want students to achieve or accomplish

Scaffold the learning using ICTs - just like we do naturally in our classrooms

Build on learning not stand-alone topics or activities based on skills etc. Base everything on your current classroom learning topics/programmes.

Break teaching & instruction into manageable chunks

Resist the urge to teach programmes, skills etc. ‘just in case’

Teach skills in authentic contexts

Technology Use

Dabbling with technology

Old things in Old Ways

Old things in New Ways

New things in New Ways

Never before have many of these opportunities been available

Give your teaching practice a shake up

How are you connecting your classroom to the world?
