PE ICT experiences

Below is a list of good and bad ICT experiences I was involved in during my prac.  I think I’ll get the bad ones out of the way first.

BAD

  • I was introducing congruency with the IWB using an app I downloaded onto my surface and my presentation was boring and slow because I was not confident even after some practise.  The students could see this if they were blind and lost focus on the lesson altogether.  I was so embarrassed and disappointed.
  • I was doing an online activity with the students and hearing some students say that they were bored was very disheartening for me because I know they’re not learning if that’s the case.
  • I was showing the students how to use powtoon so they could develop a story tell

GOOD

  • I used internet as a revision task a couple times and both times were great.  I had websites up on the board for them to refer to and visit.  Some included math games which was a big hit.  Students were learning and reinforcing their learning through games.
  • I used digital cameras for students to take pictures to construct thier story tell and to record their story tell when they were to present it to the class.  They loved it.
  • I used the digital camera for students to take pictures of their bridges they built using straws.  Students would then place their pictures up on the learning place.  They loved using my cameras and it got their attention in doing the task.

I’ve found some interesting and useful resources searching online today and thought I’d share.  I’m pretty panicked about tomorrow and the more resources I find the better I feel but then the panic creeps up again but not as bad.  Maybe these resources will help others out there.  There’s a really good one from the queensland government which you can click here for it.  The other two are really good too actually hehe they’re all good.  The other two you’ll find here and here 🙂

Well, I’m glad the time has come finally because I just want to start prac, I know I should settle my anxiety once I get through the first week.  Here we all go then…..

digital bloom’s

Bloom’s digital taxonomy is the green light for me.  I’m still an amateur when it comes to ICT and digital Bloom’s describes what level of learning different ICT activities will achieve.  So I’ve used Bloom’s as my framework for planning and preparing for prac.  TPACK is good to and I will keep them in mind also but I didn’t include them in my assignment.

I’ve used Bandura as one of my theorist to guide my teaching beliefs and practises almost since I started my degree and I’ve acknowledged him in my assignment along with Vygotsky and his zone of proximity.  So part B is done and I have a day of rest before I start prac on Monday.  So nervous!

Again, good luck everybody 🙂
