Simon Haughton has created an e-book that discusses multiple ways a teacher can use ICT’s in their classroom and what they can do with ICT’s to teach students new technological skills in the classroom.
The resource is something very useful for a teacher who’s struggling with figuring out how they can incorporate ICT’s into their classroom or how they can enhance a lesson by using ICT’s. Haughton provides a number of engaging activities that will enhance students technological capabilities and skills.
I would use any and all of Haughton’s activities in my classroom as they’re engaging and provide my students an opportunity to enhance their technological skills and capabilities. I believe these technological skills, capabilities and experiences must be provided in the classroom as we’re preparing students for the real world. The real world/ society, will and do use all types of technologies on a day to day basis. We can’t escape the world of technology for it’s evolving every day. There’s continually a bigger (well in most cases smaller) and better computer’s, IPad’s, mobile phone’s, laptop’s, IPod’; there’s always a new and better everything that will make life easier! Technology is on the increase and isn’t disappearing anytime soon. Therefore we must prepare our children for this evolving technological world.
