What are ICTS ? ICT is an acronym for Information Communication Technologies. A good way of thinking about ICT’s is to consider all the ways digital technology exist to help individuals, businesses, students and teachers. An ICT is not just a computer, it is your phone in your pocket, your , your digital TV. The list is long and ever changing.

IPADS and the classroom. An evolution in one minute.
So Why the iPad and Why now? Digital Technologies are changing the way we live and work, and classrooms are no exception. An iPad can offer unprecedented access to resources and opportunities for learning and education. The portability as well as their flexibility make them a perfect addition to a classroom environment. The use of the iPad can create an engaging and stimulating classroom that when implemented correctly can greatly enhance learning outcomes for all students. Technology is ever changing and ever valued in this digital society. Therefore teaching children to stay current and ahead of the game is a valuable tool for life long learning.

Creation An iPad is a one on one device which allows students to become creative individuals in the classroom. It is a combination of allowing students to access the internet and the use of the one on one iPad which makes it more possible to develop their learning at their own pace and speed. It can be used across all facets of the Australian Curriculum. It also enables a teacher to manage the integration of literacy and numeracy into lessons that include the Science, Social Studies and History Strands. An iPad can be a used to allow teachers to transform traditional classrooms into creative learning classrooms (Jahnke, 2012). This is valuable, as students learn from mistakes and also learn at their own pace. A classroom that recognizes individuals, is a classroom that is more likely to develop a deeper learning outcome for the students involved. An iPad enables the production of creative works for assessment, and also allows parents to see the learning involved due to their mobility to and from the home. The iPad allows children to develop unique work that is vibrant and engaging. The scope to develop students into flexible learners who value creativity is ultimately aided by the use of one on one iPad classes. The possibilities for learning are endless, and are simply up to the imagination of the child and how they communicate their ideas (Ashman and Elkins, 2012).
An example of how Creativity is achieved on the iPad. There are many apps that enable a level of individual creativity, one of these is Book Creator. It enables students to create individually or collaboratively a digital book which includes text, images, video, and audio. It can be uploaded or merged to create one larger book showcasing the children’s work. =AgAuIIswsfA A link for Book Creator in your own time. A How to Guide for parents.
Collaboration The iPad has the ability to become a device which is used in a one on one activity or a group activity. Children using iPads in the classroom frequently help one another to navigate, and share their triumphs, together as they explore new content and apps. The collaborative effect of the iPad enables a teacher to take on many different roles in the classroom including discussions, modelling, and coaching. This enables students to access better levels of assistance from the teacher and therefore a higher level of interaction between teacher and student (Milman, Carlson-Bancroft & Boogert, 2012). Collaboration is an effective teaching strategy which encourages peer support and improves student outcomes. It enables students to retain more information due to the hands on interaction. The more success students achieve, the more likely they are to develop critical thinking. Critical thinking is one of the most crucial aspects of how student learning is achieved (Jahnke, 2012). The Melbourne Declaration on Educational goals for Young Australians is a document that acknowledges major changes in the world and how they place new demands on Australian Students. It suggests that one of the goals for Australians to become successful learners hinges on them being confident and creative individuals and also their ability to be active and informed citizens.
An example of how Collaboration is achieved using the iPad. Blackboard for iPad can provide an interactive mobile learning experience. It uses real life animations, and sounds. It allows a hands on approach to mathematics and allows children to draw, group and design solutions for mathematical problems. With each child holding and writing their own answers, the teacher can see each individual iPad when held up to ascertain whether the children understand the concept and can move on. Please view a short video of children working collaboratively with their teacher and each other. (Optional Extra) Images copyright Michelle Acutt 2014
We live in a society that shares everything. From online news sites, to photos of our children and special events on social media. Allowing children to communicate and be active members of our digital society is more likely to prepare them for university and for their future careers. The Melbourne Declaration on Educational Goals for Young Australians is a document that acknowledges major changes in the world and how they place new demands on Australian Students. It suggests that one of the goals for Australians to become successful learners hinges on them being confident and creative individuals and also their ability to be active and informed citizens. The iPad enables students to become active and engaged in their school and the community (Myceetya, 2008) Teaching has changed and many teachers will share their ideas and resources with others online. A sharing of resources enables teachers to access and use a much larger pool of information to create lessons and use ideas. An iPad allows teachers and students to share their work. This can be done via websites and or social media. iPads enable a link to be formed to the world outside the classroom. This link to the outside world can often be just what children need to understand a concept and develop their own thinking and ideas. For your perusal please consider reading this blog of a Teacher and Father in France and how he integrates a iPad into his everyday lessons. This is the perfect example of how sharing ideas can transform a teaching unit to improve outcomes for student learning. Communication
An example of how Communication is achieved using the iPad. Quizlet. A free app where teachers can create and share quizzes online. See what others are studying in your local area or search the world ! This valuable tool for use both in the classroom and at home. When used in communication with parents it is a great tool for homework and revision. See Quizlet for further information and search for quizzes near you.
