What are they?
Wireless keyboard and mouse
Laptop for the teacher: Empowers the teacher Familiarity engenders confidence and competence Drives ICT Common platform Current technology Portability
Data projector: Ceiling mounted
Keyboard and Mouse:
Keyboard and Mouse
ICT in Maths
Range within the classroom
Allows pupil to interact from his / her seat
Allows teacher to move from traditional teaching position
Allows children to type in answers
Presenter does not obscure the board
No problem with access due to height
Use in the infant classroom
VisualiserUses: Teacher’s view To display books, artefacts Project images of 3D objects and magnify them Display exemplars of good work by pupils Demonstrate e.g. correct way to hold pen Immediate feedback Zoom, capture, replay and freeze facility Reduces photocopying Gives access to scarce resources Whole class can see what is being demonstrated Visualiser in the classroom
Other technologiesGraphics Tablet Highlight work Write on the board and save images Video replay Wireless option
Digital Notebook Field work
Tablet PC’s Mobility
Free content available on the internet
Interactive Teaching programs
Create your own resources
NCTE , Scoilnet, Imagebank etc.
Virtual Learning Environment
Why choose this option?Cost effective
Financial constraints Incremental development
Sustainable A mixture of ICT environments Emerging technologies 3-5 year obsolescence cycle
Priorities Empower the teacher Develop an e-learning culture Share resources
Whiteboard May be used as normal whiteboard Templates may be projected on to it Robust
AdvantagesTeaching Methodologies: Instant access Facilitate ease of interaction with the content Focus attention on one point Getting away from traditional methods Promote effective teaching Puts teacher in a facilitative rather than instructional role
ICT Culture Available to all teachers in the school Resource sharing Digital Environment Technology becomes seamless and invisible ICT becomes embedded in teaching and learning Peer learning CPD - school based
Pedagogical Benefits Different learning styles Visual impact holds attention More engaged Instant response Child friendly medium Variety of teaching techniques New patterns of teaching practice – Power shift Especially useful for teaching difficult concepts Take existing practices and engage the children in a more exciting
way Developing effective classrooms Creates of new and innovative learning space Transforming teaching and learning
Multi-modal Portal Video and Streaming Video
Interactive teaching programs
Peripherals such as microscopes etc.
Use of peripherals: Where teachers appropriately integrate peripherals (eg: ACTIVslates, Digiblues, microscopes, laptops etc) into their IWB lessons, an interesting shift in power can occur:
where the teacher orchestrates the lesson from the back of the room and manipulates the board (shift from T/P IWB)
where pupils are allowed to use Digiblues and microscopes and subsequently take some control over what’s displayed on the IWB (shift from T Ps/IWB)
where pupils work in pairs/groups with laptops linked to the IWB (shared control Ps/T/IWB)

Knowing when not to use it as important as knowing when to use it
ICT no longer just means hardware but a solution that fits a need
