I just finished this week’s work material and gained some good resources from it such as the Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy. I downloaded it and briefly skimmed through the document finding lots of helpful tips and information to intergrade ICT into your learning experiences at different levels. If you brushed passed it, I urge you take it on board. Link is here. I also downloaded the starter sheets because I thought they were very good for someone who finds ICT very foreign. Link is here.
My blogs are so plain, I have hardly attracted anyone to them. haha. Well hopefully I’ve helped someone out there.
I read David’s response about technology being about pedagogy and I agree with David that they should both be important. I would not feel confident trying to teach a topic with an ICT tool that is not very familiar to me. I wouldn’t be teaching it very well. I would want to know all its clever little abilities within the ICT app so I can use it to its full potential enabling students to learn to their full potential through the tool. Also I would think the students would appreciate it more as they experience the extent of the tools capabilities and how it generates more thinking and learning.
