Some things never change….

26 Aug


This week has concentrated on finishing Assignment 2 and producing a unit of work that effectively integrates ICT’s to maximise student learning. The diagram above portrays the common trap of using technology to teach students as they have always been taught. The challenge for us as teachers is to consider innovative ways to implement technology that extends student’s learning and allows them to discover, make connections with the real world and use technology to learn in different ways that is more aligned with their social worlds.

Just one of the ideas suggested includes the following:

Project Noah – An online tool that allows people to document and discover wildlife from all over the world. Just one of the features is for students to become backyard detectives as they spot and share with others all over the globe the wildlife they come across in their own schoolyards/backyards.

This looks like a great resource that can certainly take science exploration to the next level!
