Earlier this week I experienced my first ‘Oh my what am I going to do’ moment with using ICTs. It all turned out well but the computers were slow to start and then logging on would not work straight away. All up 10 minutes of the lesson was eaten up with the delay which obviously meant that I could not cover all of the content I needed to for that lesson. The Yr 12s were kind though (ropbably because it meant they didn’t have to work). So far it’s been hard to implement different ICTs because students are now rushing around getting their assignments finished. Either way it’s all a learning curve.
Word of advice? Don’t lose it. Even with the little things.
