Why ICT is so important:
As an ICT leader, I can see the importance of using ICT as a tool in the classroom. Not only is it engaging, but it allows children to learn in a collaborative way. ICT is shaping the world and constantly changing. Today, everyone needs an understanding in communication and technology.
Google Apps for Education:
GAFE has revolutionised the way I teach and learn. Not only with my students but with colleagues too. There are many benefits to using Google Apps with students, especially because collaboration is made easy. Not only can I share things with my students from anywhere, but I can provide instant feedback on their work and share their learning journeys with their parents. A few reasons why you should give GAFE a go:
- it’s completely free
- auto save
- accessible anywhere you have an internet connection
- you can share, upload and save multiple copies of files
- you can monitor permission settings
- collaboration is simple
- monitor student learning
- ongoing and instant feedback for students
These are just a few advantages of using GAFE in the classroom. I’ll keep you posted with some examples soon!
